The body of former NBA player Lorenzen Wright has been found. After going missing for ten days, police have confirmed that the body they found in a wooded area in southeast Memphis is the former Memphis Grizzlies baller.

It has also been reported that a 911 call from Wright’s cell phone was made on the same day he disappeared, in which several gunshots were heard by a 911 dispatcher and no one answered a returned call. His family has issued out a statement on behalf on their sudden loss:
