Matthew Wright moves from Kyoto to Kawasaki for upcoming B.League season

Matthew Wright is not going anywhere.

The 6-foot-4 Filipino-Canadian sniper has signed with Kawasaki for the 2024-25 B.League season.

Wright, 33, spent the last two years with Kyoto.

“To my Hannaryz family, it’s been an incredible two years with this organization. Thank you to the boosters, fans, and everyone affiliated with the team for making my experience so fulfilling. I will miss the beautiful city of Kyoto and the loyal fan base,” his statement read.

“You will always have a special place in my family’s hearts. Wishing the organization all the best moving forward.”

During his first two years with the Hannaryz, the 2021 PBA Order of Merit winner played a total of 109 games.

Last season, he averaged 13.13 points, 3.19 assists, and 2.98 rebounds per game.

Kyoto, however, finished with a 17-43 record.

Now, he gets a chance with a contender.

The Brave Thunders finished 10th last season with a 33-27 record.

“It is an honor to be a part of a basketball club that’s been around since 1950 and is one of the most prestigious in all of Japan. I chose Kawasaki because it has one of the most historic and successful programs in Japan and a very strong team and organization that commands respect throughout the league,” he said.

“I would like to express my sincere gratitude to the Brave Thunders organization, boosters, and fans for welcoming me and my family into your inner circle. I cannot wait to get started with my new teammates and make this upcoming season a special one,” he added.

“Let’s make great memories together. BE BRAVE!”
