The 6-foot-9, 24-year-old was the 19th overall pick out of high school in the 2004 draft. He averaged 7.1 points and 3.7 rebounds for Miami last season and is considered a plus defender. "We're looking at several 3-men, and we feel like we're close to a deal," Riley said. A Warriors source said Wright "is the direction we're going to go."
I'm not certain if this is the small forward most Warriors fans were thinking of when Riley made the promise of getting a 3-man, but take what you can get at this point I guess. How much this influences the Anthony Morrow situation remains yet to be seen, but clearly Wright is a complimentary piece and probably won't be in a starting role next season.
And if he IS starting...well...yikes.
I'm hearing numbers on Dorell Wright are 3 years, $11.4 million: $3.5 ... $3.8 ... $4.1
