Trail Blazers sign swingman Dorell Wright
July 6, 2013
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A person close to the negotiations says that the Portland Trail Blazers have agreed to a contract with free agent small forward Dorell Wright, who played last season with the Philadelphia 76ers.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the deal cannot be formalized until Wednesday under NBA rules.
Wright, a nine-year NBA veteran, averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists off the bench for the Sixers last season. He was traded to Philadelphia from Golden State last July.
The Blazers on Saturday announced they have waived guard-forward Sasha Pavlovic, who averaged 2.6 points and 1.4 rebounds in 39 appearances last season. While he had two years left on his contract with Portland, his salary was not guaranteed.
