Dotted around the perimeter are a bevy of shooters, the best of which is former Timberwolves guard Bracey Wright. Wright was brought over midseason from French team Paris-Levallois, and leads Cedevita in Eurocup scoring at 18.0 points per game. Wright scores inside and out, driving the ball without needing a whole lot of space to do it, shooting off of curls, spotting up, and occasionally isolating. He also chips in with 4.5 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game, playing solid defense as well.

- Bracey Wright
Ex-Timberwolves guard Wright got off to a late start this year, not signing anywhere until January. He eventually hooked up with Belgian team Oostende, and averaged 12.8 points and 1.6 assists per game. However, Oostende were knocked out of the Belgian playoffs at the semi-finals stages by Courtney Sims's Charleroi, and so Bracey's season is over.
Wright is American, which makes his presence in Belgium seem entirely normal; for a lengthier breakdown of the demographs of Belgian basketball, and specifically that of BC Oostende, click here. In the end, Belgians played only 251 out of a possible 7,200 minutes in Oostende games this season. Also, former NBA guard Eddie Gill, another member of the Oostende backcourt, ended the season in a 3-37 shooting slump (also known as an Iverson, or a fortnight of Dioner Navarro) and shot only 28% on the season. He was in the NBA in 2008-09. This was a bit of a wasted year for him.
