Memphis authorities have found the body of former NBA and University of Memphis basketball player Lorenzen Wright, missing since July 19, a media report said Wednesday.

Law enforcement officials discovered the body of Wright in a wooded area in southeast Memphis, police sources confirmed to the Memphis Commercial Appeal.

Wright was believed to be carrying some amount of cash when he was last seen July 19 in Memphis, and a Collierville police report released Wednesday raised concerns he may be the victim of foul play.

Wright's sister, Savia Archie, told WREG.com in Memphis last Friday that Wright was last seen when he was expected to leave the city, after flying to Memphis to visit friends and his six children.

Wright was expected to drive back to the Atlanta area with his six children and a friend, after leaving his ex-wife's Memphis-area home, the Commercial Appeal reported.

Wright played in college at Memphis and later for the Grizzlies as a pro. He last played in the league for the Cleveland Cavaliers during the 2008-09 season.
