Blazers sign Wright, trade for Lopez, Robinson



PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The Portland Trail Blazers formally signed free agent small forward Dorell Wright and acquired center Robin Lopez and Thomas Robinson in trades, sealing three of several deals the team struck last week.

The Blazers got Lopez in a three-team trade with New Orleans and Sacramento that sent guard Tyreke Evans to the Pelicans and guard Greivis Vasquez to the Kings.

Portland traded the rights to Kostas Papnikolaou and Marko Todorovic, as well as two future second-round picks, to the Rockets in exchange for Robinson, the fifth overall pick in last year’s draft.

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.
