Thunder Acquires Bulls Guard Thabo Sefolosha?

According to a report on SI.com, the Thunder has acquired guard Thabo Sefolosha from Chicago in exchange for a 2009 first-round draft pick.

Sefolosha, a 6-7 wingman, is in his third season from Switzerland. He holds career averages 5.0 points, 2.9 rebounds and 1.4 assists in 183 games.

Sefolosha, 24, was the 13th overall pick in the 2006 draft. He’s known as an athletic and versatile player who can rebound, defend and has a nice mix of offensive ability. Sefolosha fits the mold of a young player that Thunder general manager Sam Presti covets who can grow with the team’s current young nuclues of Kevin Durant, Jeff Green and Russell Westbrook.

Sefolosha is making $1.9 million this season and has one year remaining on his contract at $2.7 million for 2009-10. 

Sefolosha is likely to start at shooting guard, replacing rookie guard Kyle Weaver.
