Looking to add depth and experience at the lead guard position following the departure of Derek Fisher, the Thunder has agreed to terms with veteran point guard Sebastian Telfair.
Telfair, 29, was the 13th overall pick in 2004. He’s played for seven teams in nine seasons but spent last season in China. In 548 career NBA games, Telfair has averaged 7.4 points, 1.6 rebounds and 3.5 assists in 21.6 minutes.
The deal is a one-year contract at the veteran’s minimum, about $1.3 million.
Telfair traveled to Oklahoma City earlier in the week to meet with Thunder officials and tour the city. Under league rules, however, teams cannot sign players until July 10.
The 6-foot point guard is expected to play behind starter Russell Westbrook and sixth man Reggie Jackson.
CSN Northwest was first to report the agreement.
