In a Q&A with The Oklahoman, (Dorell) Wright discussed his free agency last summer, what it’s like being recruited by the Thunder and why he ultimately chose the Blazers over the Thunder.

Q: What was the free agency process like for you last summer?

A: My main goal was to find somewhere where I fit in. The three teams that were really coming at me, well the main two teams that were really coming at me the hardest, were OKC and (Portland). My whole focus was somewhere I could fit in, a team I could grow with, not just any team and be there one year or two years before moving to the next team. I was just looking for someone I could grow with, guys I could play with for multiple years. It just worked out here. Better for the family and better for myself as far as a business move.
