NBA free agency: Dorell Wright, Blazers reach contract agreement, according to agent

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Dorell Wright agreed to a deal with Portland as the Blazers continue to add depth.

The Portland Trail Blazers agreed to a two-year, $6 million deal with Dorell Wright, his agent told Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports. Wright cannot sign a contract until Wednesday when the NBA's moratorium on signings ends.

Wright averaged 9.2 points and 3.8 rebounds for the Philadelphia 76ers last season. He shot 37.4 percent from three in 2012-13, two years after leading the NBA in three-pointers made with the Golden State Warriors. He was one of the best perimeter shooters left on the free agent market before the Blazers snapped him up and he is expected to give the Portland bench a boost.

The Blazers made building depth a priority, having dealt for Robin Lopez and Thomas Robinson in the last week. They also drafted C.J. McCollum and Allen Crabbe, both players who many feel can contribute as rookies, giving Portland options off the bench it lacked a year ago.
