Report: Clippers adding veteran free agent shooter Dorell Wright to training camp deal
The LA Clippers have made solid strides towards improving their roster for the big 2016-17 season ahead of them. Re-signing free agents Jamal Crawford, Wesley Johnson, and Austin Rivers was key to start their summer, and the additions of Brandon Bass as well as Marreese Speights only bolstered their already solid frontcourt of Blake Griffin and new Olympic Gold Medalist DeAndre Jordan.
According to Dan Woike of the Orange County Register, the Clippers, who have lacked a solid small forward for the past couple of years, made the move to sign veteran free agent shooting guard/small forward Dorell Wright to a training camp deal.

Wright brings much needed shooting and length to a Clippers roster that hasn’t seen much from their small forward position of late. If he makes the final roster next month, he could vertainly be in line to see playing time at small forward. Wright holds career averages of 8.4 points, 3.8 rebounds, 1.5 assists, and 1.1 three-pointers made per game.
His career 36.5% three point shooting percentage may not the most impressive number, but when given playing time, he’s shown to be a very good 3-and-D guy.
