MORRIS PETERSON

Position: Shooting guard

Years pro: 10

Career stats: 10.7 ppg, 3.5 rpg, 1.5 apg, 0.9 spg

What the Thunder lost: Nothing on the court. Peterson played a total of 23 minutes. But his veteran leadership in the locker room and on the bench was invaluable on such a young team.

What the Bobcats got: Sharp shooting if they want it. Peterson is a career 37.3 percent shooter from downtown.

D.J. WHITE

Position: Power forward

Years pro: Two

Career stats: 4.4 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 0.4 bpg, 0.3 apg, 0.3 spg

What the Thunder lost: A power forward prospect. White never got much of a chance in OKC. Injuries and superior talent prevented him from seeing many minutes. But he was developing nicely.

What the Bobcats got: A 24-year-old big man with potential. White can score from inside as well as outside while also adding some defensive rebounding.
