Portland inks Wright, Crabbe

The Portland Trail Blazers signed free agent forward Dorell Wright and rookie guard Allen Crabbe on Wednesday.

According to a Yahoo! Sports, Wright's deal is worth $6 million over two years.

The 6-foot-9 forward averaged 9.2 points and shot 37 percent from 3-point range for the Philadelphia 76ers last season.

Wright was taken with the 19th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft by the Miami Heat, where he spent the first six seasons of his career. Wright then joined the Golden State Warriors for two seasons (2010-2012) before joining the Sixers last season.

The Blazers acquired Crabbe, the 2013 Pac-12 Player of the Year, from Cleveland on draft day in exchange for two future second round picks.

The 31st overall selection averaged 15.7 points per game on 44.6 percent shooting from field.

In addition to the signings, Portland acquired forward Thomas Robinson from the Houston Rockets in exchange for the NBA rights to Kostas Papnikolaou and Marko Todorvic along with a pair of future second round picks.

Robinson, 22, was selected with the fifth overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft out of Kansas before being shipped to Houston at the trade deadline last season.

Over 70 games with Sacramento (51 games) and Houston (19 games), Robinson averaged 4.8 points and 4.1 rebounds.
