Report: OKC Thunder offers free agent Dorell Wright a contract

From Staff Reports Published: July 3, 2013

Free-agent forward Dorell Wright visited the Thunder on Tuesday and was made contract offers for one and two years, a league source reportedly told Yahoo! Sports.

Wright was offered similar contracts by the Portland TrailBlazers, but is hoping to get a deal with more years and money, a source told Yahoo!

A childhood friend and teammate of Thunder All-Star point guard Russell Westbrook, Wright averaged 9.2 points and shot 37.4 percent from 3-point range primarily as a reserve for the Philadelphia 76ers last season.

He reportedly has also received interest from San Antonio, Memphis and Dallas.

OKC is looking to replace reserve swingman Kevin Martin, who has verbally agreed to a four-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves reportedly worth $28-$30 million.
