Dorell Wright retired and announced his decision through social media on Wednesday evening.

Wright, 34, last played for Igokea concluding his run with the ABA League team in January. That stop was proven the last of his pro career launched back in 2004 after being selected 19th overall in the NBA draft.

He stayed with his first team, the Miami Heat for six seasons, including his contribution to the 2006 championship. Shorter stints with the Golden State Warriors, Philadelphia 76ers, and Portland Trail Blazers followed up before a return to the Heat and his final NBA appearance in 2016.

Moving his talents to Europe initially landed him at Brose Bamberg. At 32, he went through his lone Turkish Airlines EuroLeague season attached to the German outlet. He also competed in the 7DAYS EuroCup with Lokomotiv Kuban. Igokea through two separate runs covered his remaining European experience.
