Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of Philadelphia free-agent guard Dorell Wright, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.
The Thunder are working to stay below the luxury tax threshold this season, searching for bargain contributors able to spread the floor and make shots. The return of Kevin Martin to the Thunder appears unlikely, unless the market for him dries up completely and he has to return at a far lower rate than he’s trying to find, league sources said.
Snap-take: Wright would be a tremendous pickups for the Thunder. Great shooter, quality defender, versatile, smart.
Wright, 27, averaged 9.2 points in 72 games for the Sixers a season ago.
