After six unparalleled years with the Miami Heat, Wright was signed as a free agent with the Golden State Warriors on July 13, 2010. In his first season with Golden State, Wright started all 82 games and enjoyed a breakout season, averaging 16.4 points, 5.3 rebounds and 1.5 steals per game. Also within his first year with the Warriors, the league honored Dorell’s superior shooting ability, selecting him to compete in the 2011 Footlocker Three-Point Contest during the NBA All-Star Weekend in Los Angeles where he impressed many with an explosive performance, cementing his status as the leading candidate for the 2010-2011 NBA MIP (Most Improved Player). Dorell’s dedication and focus were reflected in his consistent rankings as the league leader in 3-point shots, ending his breakout 2011 season with a total of 194. Wright indelibly altered franchise history when he shattered the Warrior’s longstanding record for the most 3-pointers in a single season. He also had the most 3 pointers made in a single game, with an unmatched nine baskets. On April 13th, Wright scored 20 points, marking his 2010-2011 season total at 1344. This is 10 more than was needed to officially score more points in his seventh season than his previous six combined, an unrivaled historic feat never before accomplished in the history of the NBA.
With a total of two high-energy seasons as a Golden State Warrior under his belt, Dorell then made a calculated move to the Philadelphia 76ers where he spent the 2012-13 season averaging 9.2 points and 3.8 rebounds. Joining the ranks of 2012-13 Rookie of the year Damian Lillard and two-time NBA All-Star LaMarcus Aldridge on the Portland Trailblazer’s roster, Dorell enjoyed two years with the team, helping to advance the 2013-14 squad into the second round of playoffs, a historic season for the young team.
