Oklahoma City wasn’t expected to do much this summer in free agency.

However, the team is aggressively pursuing Sixers unrestricted free agent Dorell Wright, according to Yahoo! Sports.

The 6-foot-9 small forward averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists this past season. He also shot 37.4 percent on three pointers during his lone year with the Sixers.

Trying hard to remain under the luxury tax, the Thunder won’t have much more than $5 million to offer a free agent. Wright made $4.1 million last season. Wright is expected to demand more than $5 million.
