"Akeem is the kind of player who can put the ball on the floor, get to the hole and finish," said Rainmen head coach Robert Spon. "He also is a very good defender who can block a lot of shots as well. Akeem is very athletic and is just an all around exciting player to watch."

Wright is expected to join the team February 1.
