Sharone Addaryl Wright (born January 30, 1973, in Macon, Georgia) is a retired American professional basketball player.

He played collegiately at Clemson University from 1990 until 1994.

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 has also played professionally in Spain, Poland, South Korea as well as in the Netherlands with the EiffelTowers.[1]

Since 2008, Wright has lived in the Netherlands. In the season of 2007-2008 Wright came back to EiffelTowers in Den Bosch as a player, and made it all the way to what he is today: assistant coach. In his first year (2008-2009) as an assistant coach Wright won the Dutch Cup and was elected as one of Holland's best coaches by making it to the Dutch Under23 All Star Team. In that year he also helped EiffelTowers to reach the final 16 in the European FIBA Challenge.

In the season of 2009-2010 Wright also is the assistant coach for EiffelTowers. The team will be joining the FIBA Eurochallenge again and the team of EiffelTowers is expected to be successful this year in terms of winning the national title and the Dutch cup again.
