MEMPHIS, Tenn. - Missing NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been reported dead after missing for 10 days.

Curtis Wright, his uncle, told Memphis reporters the police contacted Wright's father earlier today.

The 34-year-old Wright was last seen July 18th when he was expected to fly out of town. His family filed a missing person report July 22.

Wright played 13 years in the NBA with five different teams.
