I thought I'd get my voting over with, since I was looking up the same info for both Carney and Wright.

nba.com is one of the only sites that lists the 6’7 or 6’8” 205-lb Dorrell Wright exclusively as a forward

Most list him as a guard-forward:

ESPN profile, G/F: http://sports.espn.go.com/nba/players/profile?playerId=2423
Rotoworld. G/F: http://www.rotoworld.com/content/playerpages/player_main.aspx?id=1059&sport=NBA
FoxSports/MSN, G/F: http://msn.foxsports.com/nba/player?statsId=3836
CNN-SI: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/basketball/nba/players/3836/
Yahoo sports: http://sports.yahoo.com/nba/players/3836

Others list him only at SG:
Hoopshype: http://www.hoopshype.com/players/dorell_wright.htm
Hoopsstats: http://www.hoopsstats.com/basketball/fantasy/nba/miami-heat/players/dorell-wright/profile/07/15/223
Rotowire: http://www.rotowire.com/basketball/player.htm?ID=2491

He was SUPPOSED to be a favorite to start at SG to open the season for the injured Dwayne Wade, or win a spot outright at SF. Poor shooting has scuttled his starting hopes.

A feature article from October 18 describes his promise and his struggles so far (quote: “Wright has a legitimate chance to start. The kid can play shooting guard or small forward, and while he won't make anyone forget about Dwyane Wade, he'll be a nice stand-in as the highest-flying member of the Heat until Wade returns from surgery.”

Another from the Miami Herald (quote: “Be it at shooting guard or small forward, Wright just wants to keep up his defensive and rebounding effort, and help out on the offense when he can.”)
http://www.miamiherald.com/594/story/275269.html

In the preseason, mostly he has been starting with Penny Hardway, 2 bigs, and a pure point guard, so it basically depends upon your perspective which one you consider the guard. A recent box: http://scores.espn.go.com/nba/boxscore?gameId=271023014

with only 6 people voting, I am assuming that this does NOT pass?

Yeah - it's a failed vote - I'm as guilty as anyone - zero time right now.
