The Oklahoma City Thunder were not expected to do much this summer in free agency.

However, the team is aggressively pursuing Dorell Wright, an unrestricted free agent from the 76ers, according to Yahoo Sports.

The 6-foot-9 small forward averaged 9.2 points, 3.8 rebounds, and 1.9 assists last season. He shot 37.4 percent on three-pointers during his lone year with the Sixers.

Trying hard to remain under the luxury tax, the Thunder won't have much more than $5 million to offer a free agent. Wright made $4.1 million last season and is expected to demand more than $5 million in 2013-14.

Jenkins is out. The 76ers did not make a qualifying offer to Charles Jenkins, making him an unrestricted free agent.

The reserve guard averaged 2.5 points in 12 games last season. He has received interest from Maccabi Tel Aviv of the Israeli Basketball Super League and Euroleague.
