Still, this latest move once again has us asking “What exactly is the game plan here?”
In a curious move, the 7-6 went out and acquired yet another wing player. According to multiple reports, this time the front office pulled in Dorrell Wright (6-9; 205) from the Warriors for a future draft pick. Wright was good for 10.3 points and 4.6 rebounds per game last season for the Warriors in 27 minutes per night. He owned a PER of 15.07 and has one year left on his current contract at $4.1 million.
With the drafting of Maurice Harkless (6-9; 205), the signing of Nick Young (6-8; 210) and now the addition of Wright an already crowded and confusing wing situation in Philadunkia nation has become complete chaos. There has to be a big move coming, right????
More on Wright after the jump…
The 19th overall pick by Miami in the 2004 NBA Draft, Wright is in his 8th year in the NBA and this will be the third team he has played for in the League. Wright has career numbers of 9.3 ppg. and 4.2 rpg. Over the last eight seasons he has shot 43.8% from the field and popped 3-balls at a 36.5% clip. His best season was in 2010-11 when he played in 82 games for the GSW and hit for 16.4 ppg. and grabbed 5.3 rpg. That season he averaged 38 minutes per night.
In theory Wright is an athletic 3-point shooter who can stretch the floor, but I don’t see how he will be getting those 2010-11 type minutes here in Philly, so it’s doubtful we will see those solid numbers from Wright. But at this point anything could happen next.
