Sharone Addaryl Wright (born January 30, 1973) is a retired American professional basketball player.
Wright was selected 6th overall in the 1994 NBA Draft by the Philadelphia 76ers. He played four NBA seasons with the 76ers and Toronto Raptors. His best year as a professional came during his rookie season with the 76ers when he appeared in 79 games and averaged 11.4 points and 6 rebounds per game. He was named to the NBA All-Rookie Second Team.
While still a member of the Raptors, Wright's NBA career was cut short by a car accident in Macon, Georgia in which he suffered multiple injuries, including broken arms and collarbone. In 203 career games, he averaged 9.7 points (from .456 FG and .618 FT), 5.0 rebounds and 1.6 blocks in 22.3 minutes per game.
He also played professionally in Spain, Poland, South Korea as well as in the Netherlands with the EiffelTowers.
Wright later became a coach for HOOP-CAMPS in Europe.
