The Portland Trail Blazers came into the NBA’s free agent market with a hefty amount of cap space but took a dent out of it when they acquired big man Robin Lopez from the New Orleans Hornets earlier this week. Now, they’ve ate up a bit more with the addition of small forward, Dorell Wright.
According to Yahoo Sports, Wright and the Blazers have agreed on a two year deal worth a reported $6 million dollars.
Wright’s two year deal with Portland will pay him approximately $6 million, league source tells Y! Sports.
The 19th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft spent last season as a member of the Philadelphia 76ers, though struggled in somewhat reduced minutes. Just two seasons ago as a member of the Golden State Warriors, Wright averaged over 16 points a game on 43% shooting along with over 5 rebounds and 3 plus assists.
For the price, it’s hard to hate as the Blazers added a solid bench piece on the cheap.
