Reports: Portland Trail Blazers and Dorell Wright agree to two-year, $6 million pact
The Portland Trail Blazers and free-agent swingman Dorell Wright have agree to a two-year, $6 million deal, according to multiple reports. The agreement between the Trail Blazers and Wright can’t be made official until the NBA’s moratorium period ends on July 10.
The 6-foot-9 forward was reportedly a priority signing for the Oklahoma City Thunder before the Trail Blazers swooped in and reached an agreement with Wright. Wright spent last season with the Philadelphia 76ers where he averaged 9.2 points on 39.6 percent shooting from the field.
Wright, an eight-year veteran, joins a Blazers team that have traded for Robin Lopez and Thomas Robinson in a busy Trail Blazers offseason. In 2010-11, Wright had his best season in the NBA with the Golden State Warriors while averaging a career-high 16.4 points-per-game.
