Thunder Signs Former Lottery Pick Sebastian Telfair

Jul 3, 2014

The Oklahoma City Thunder have reportedly agreed to terms with point guard Sebastian Telfair.

The former lottery pick has played for seven NBA teams in nine seasons, but last played in 2013-14 for Tianjin Ronggang in China, averaging 26.1 points and six assists. For his NBA career, Telfair has averaged 7.4 points and 3.5 assists.

Telfair looks to be used as a replacement for reserve point guard Derek Fisher, who retired at the end of last season to become the head coach of the New York Knicks.

Telfair was a highly touted prospect out of Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, New York in 2004. His journey was the subject of a 2005 ESPN documentary, Through the Fire.
