by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Mavericks power forward Brandan Wright is nearing a return from a broken shoulder, the Dallas Morning News reports Thursday. When he does return, he'll be joining a crowded situaiton in the front court. 

Starters Samuel Dalembert and Dirk Nowitzki have been backed up thus far by DeJuan Blair and everything has gone well for the Mavs. There will only be so many minutes to go around for Wright. 

"[Blair] is a banger, long arms, where Brandan’s more precise, more of a finesse shot blocker and scorer," owner Mark Cuban said. "There’s few people in the league that can score as efficiently as Brandan can or block shots as well. There’s not a lot of guys who can bang like DeJuan can and muck up the lanes and stuff like that. And he’s a great pick-and-roll player. It’s going to be a good problem to have. I’m sure somebody will be upset along the way. But these guys are team guys, so that’s good news."
