Dorell Wright, NBA Forward-Guard, was selected 19th overall in the 2004 NBA draft. The legendary Pat Riley, one of the most celebrated coaches of all time, saw Wright’s undeniable potential and athleticism; prompting him for the first time in his 17-year career history to draft a player straight out of high school to the Miami Heat. In 2006 Wright was a member of the first Miami Heat team to win an NBA Championship. After 6 years playing for the Heat, Wright was signed as a free agent with the Golden State Warriors on July 13, 2010. With two high-energy seasons with the Golden State Warriors under his belt, Dorell made an exciting move to the Philadelphia 76er’s. With his new team Dorell looks to continue soaring to new heights on and off the court. Wright launched his D Wright Way Foundation dedicated to the support and empowerment of marginalized youth.
