OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The Oklahoma City Thunder have picked up shooting guard Thabo Sefolosha in a trade with the Chicago Bulls, who had a logjam at the position after acquiring John Salmons from Sacramento earlier in the week.
The Thunder sent a first-round pick in this June's draft to the Bulls for Sefolosha, who could fill a hole in Oklahoma City's backcourt. The Thunder also get cash in the deal.
Sefolosha has averaged five points and about three rebounds over three NBA seasons since being drafted in the first round out of Switzerland. He lost his starting job in Chicago after a slow start.
To make room for Sefolosha, the Thunder waived center Mouhamed Sene, a former first-round pick who hadn't played since November.
