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.”)

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.
