For the Thunder, Kevin Martin might be too expensive to retain.

So, according to Yahoo Sports! Adrian Wojnarowski (via ProBasketballTalk), Oklahoma City is after Sixers' free-agent swingman Dorell Wright.

"Oklahoma City has begun an aggressive pursuit of Philadelphia free-agent guard Dorell Wright, league sources told Yahoo! Sports," writes Wojnarowski. "The return of Kevin Martin to the Thunder appears unlikely, unless the market for him dries up completely and he has to return at a far lower rate than he's trying to find, league sources said."

In 79 games last season with the Sixers, Wright shot 37 percent from three-point range and averaged 9.2 points.

Blatche played in all 82 games last season and averaged 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds in 19 minutes of action.

In his rookie season, Copeland played 56 games, 13 of which he started, shot 42 percent from three-point range and averaged 8.7 points.
