Dorell Wright Traded To 76ers For Future Draft Pick, According To Report

It appears as though the Philadelphia 76ers will soon be without the services of guard Lou Williams, but when NBA free agency closes a door, it opens a window. Or something like that.

According to CSN Philadelphia, the Golden State Warriors have traded small forward Dorell Wright to the Sixers in exchange for what CSN's Dei Lynam reports is a "future draft pick," but the Bay Area News Group's Marcus Thompson reports is "a player Philly previously drafted and stashed overseas." Whomever winds up heading to Golden State in return, the 6-foot-9-inch Wright seems to be exactly the type of player that the Sixers tend to favor.

Wright was one of the few bright spots for the Warriors last season, averaging 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game. After being drafted out of high school in the first round of the 2004 NBA draft, Wright spent the first six years of his career with the Miami Heat, including helping them win a title in 2006, but has played better in Golden State than he did while in Miami.
