ORLANDO -- Dorell Wright's days as a 76er are over.

The unrestricted free agent has reached an agreement on a two-year, $6 million deal with the Portland Trail Blazers.

After making his decision, the 6-foot-9 small forward tweeted: "Thank you Philly 76ers and fans! Teammates too"

Wright 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.
