PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Portland Trail Blazers formally signed free agent small forward Dorell Wright and acquired forward Thomas Robinson in a trade with Houston.
The Blazers agreed to the deals last week, but they could not be completed until Wednesday under NBA rules.
Wright, a nine-year NBA veteran, averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists off the bench for the Philadelphia 76ers last season. The 6-foot-9 wing was traded to Philadelphia from Golden State last July.
Portland traded the NBA rights to Kostas Papnikolaou and Marko Todorovic, and two future second-round picks, to the Rockets in exchange for Robinson.
Robinson was the fifth overall pick in last year's draft by the Sacramento Kings but he was dealt to Houston in a February trade. He played in 70 total games last season, averaging 4.5 points, 2.8 rebounds and 15.1 minutes.
