MEMPHIS, Tenn. (FOX13) -

The family of Lorenzen Wright will receive $85 thousand in a settlement with the city of Germantown.

Wright's son, Lorenzen Wright, Jr. accepted the settlement Monday in Probate Court. The slain NBA player's mother, Deborah Marion filed suit against Germantown, claiming dispatchers mishandled a 911 call from her son, the night he was killed in 2010.

The former NBA star's body was found nine days later in a wooded area of southeast Memphis.

There still are no arrests in the case.
