On Monday, the Winnipeg Sea Bears announced that former NBA player, Justin Wright-Foreman has signed with the team.

The guard was the 2023 Canadian Elite Basketball League (CEBL) scoring champion. 

Wright-Foreman comes to Winnipeg after playing with the Saskatchewan Rattlers last season where he led the league with 29.2 points per game, which would set the highest scoring average in CEBL history, an accomplishment that would make him the runner-up for MVP.

His professional basketball career started in 2019 when he was selected by the Utah Jazz 53rd overall in the NBA draft.

Wright-Foreman joins Byron Mullens as the second NBA draft pick joining the Sea Bears this season. Mullens was taken 24th overall in the 2009 NBA Draft.

The Sea Bears are out west on Thursday, June 13 to take on the Vancouver Bandits at 9:30 p.m.
