Luther Wright Net Worth

Luther Wright is an American former professional basketball player best known for his time with the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association (NBA). Drafted as an 18th pick of the 1993 NBA Draft and signing a multi-year contract worth $5 Million, Wright played 15 games before being waived the following season.

Wright’s story serves both as an instructive tale and motivation to those seeking success in sports. At Jersey City Elizabeth High School he led them to win state, while at Seton Hall his 7-foot height made him a national sensation and household name in New Jersey City Elizabeth.

Not long after returning from deployment, Wright quickly lost his way. He began partying hard and drinking excessively; socializing with Mexican gangbangers while trippin’ on mushrooms; eventually being diagnosed as bipolar and hospitalised as a result.

Wright proved himself both on the court and academically; becoming a McDonald’s All-American and all-Big East performer both his junior and senior seasons at Seton Hall. Under coach P.J. Carlesimo of Utah he earned a scholarship but after two inconsistent varsity seasons returned home.

Utah Jazz were not lacking for size with Mark Eaton, Isaac Austin and Felton Spencer on their roster, yet Wright was out of shape and an offensive distraction off of the court – bashing garbage cans with sticks and smashing car windows with sticks were out of character for such a gentle giant.

Wright made life uncomfortable during his brief tenure with the Jazz. He regularly smoked crack barefoot during winter practice sessions and used team planes for drug use; and even adopted a Rottweiler puppy from an animal shelter for road trips. After struggling to overcome his on-court and off-the-court issues, Wright was waived from the team in November 1994 after only playing 15 games. Today he serves as a motivational speaker and authoring a book detailing his life as an NBA journeyman. His message is simple: believe in yourself, pursue your dreams, and eventually you will meet your Perfect Mate.
