Former Memphis Grizzlies’ player Lorenzen Wright has been reported missing by his family after disappearing last Sunday. The 13 year former NBA player was last seen in Memphis before he was to board a flight out of town, according to his sister.
Wright played college ball at the University of Memphis and was the No. 7 pick in the 1996 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. During his 13 years in the NBA, Lorenzen played five with his hometown Memphis Grizzlies, before finishing his career with a brief stint with the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2008-09.
According to WREG TV in Memphis, the authorities do not suspect foul play. Nevertheless, his family is extremely worried. Despite earning $55 million over his NBA career, Wright has had financial difficulties, and his house was foreclosed upon last May. Lorenzen Wright has a reputation for involving himself in charitable work in the communities where he played.
Lorenzen’s mother recorded the plea above. If you have seen him or know how to contact him, have him to call home and please email a copy of this Blog to all appearing in your address book. You can also feel free to retweet this Blog and distribute it on Facebook.
