Dorell+Wright+Philadelphia+76ers+v+Atlan

Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of Philadelphia free-agent guard Dorell Wright, league sources told Yahoo! Sports.Dorrell Wright

Wright, 27, averaged 9.2 points in 72 games for the Sixers a season ago.

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.

Martin was likely their best three-point shooter last season, but all things considered, that's all you're getting...and truthfully, while he causes more problems on the defensive end (for the Thunder) than he does on the offensive end (for other teams having to defend him), he's also making the game a little more difficult for Durant, who now has to become more of a ball-handler and facilitator, in place of Harden.

 

Martin and Ibaka folded like accordions in the playoffs...but at least Ibaka did his part on the defensive end.  K-Mart was bad.
