Thunder Announces Telfair Signing

Posted: Updated:
OKLAHOMA CITY -

The Thunder officially signed free agent Sebastian Telfair on Tuesday General Manager Sam Presti announced. The deal is reportedly a one year, $1.3 million contract.

“We are pleased to have the opportunity to welcome Sebastian to the Thunder organization and Oklahoma City community,” Presti said. “His competitiveness and work ethic have complimented his on-court leadership skills throughout his career, and we are excited to be able to integrate these qualities into our team.”

Telfair (6-0, 175) joins the Thunder after spending last season with Tianjin Ronggang in China where he averaged 26.1 points, 6.0 assists, 4.5 rebounds, 2.0 steals and 36.3 minutes in 35 games.

The 13th overall pick in the 2004 NBA Draft, Telfair owns career averages of 7.4 points, 3.5 assists, 1.6 rebounds and 21.6 minutes in 548 games (192 starts) during nine seasons with Portland, Boston, Minnesota, LA Clippers, Cleveland, Phoenix and Toronto.

Telfair fills the third point guard spot on the Thunder's roster but he could end up playing significant minutes if the Thunder move Reggie Jackson into the starting two-guard spot.
