Hampton to Sixers was essentially a done deal: Wright
Interesting that Joey said the Sixers had RJ Hampton locked up until something happened at the last minute:
"Ferguson's success story kickstarted the New Stars program but Wright remains disappointed his Sixers missed out on Hampton after being the first club to reach out.
"It's a long story," grimaced Wright, who played against Hampton's father Rod at college.
"Terrance was the one who kicked it off ... and we really set the wheels in motion to get RJ as well.
"We had that pretty much locked down and done deal but lost it at the last minute.""
