Report: Thunder Sign Sebastian Telfair

Per a report, the Oklahoma City Thunder and Sebastian Telfair have agreed to a one-year year for the 2014-2015 season.

Chris Haynes of CSNNW was the first to report the signing:

After a one-year hiatus, Sebastian Telfair will make his return to the NBA for the 2014-15 season.

The free agent point guard and Oklahoma City Thunder have reached an agreement, league sources informed CSNNW.com.

According to sources that requested to remain anonymous, the terms agreed to is for one-year at the veteran’s minimum after meeting with team officials and touring the city recently.

I know the first thing that comes into your mind when you think of Telfair: Bust.

And it’s hard to blame you.

Telfair was one of the most hyped players in basketball history coming out of Lincoln high school in New York. He went straight to the pros, and has gone down hill from there. Since entering the league in 2004, he’s bounced around from team-to-team, playing for Portland, Minnesota, Cleveland, and Phoenix to name a few.  Telfair is 29-years-old and spent last year in China playing for Tianjin Ronggang.

In his 2012-2013 campaign in Toronto, Telfair averaged 4.3 points, and three assists a game.

The six-foot point guard could be decent third-string point guard, unless the Thunder move Reggie Jackson into the starting line-up, or send Reggie Jackson in a sign-and-trade to LA for Pau Gasol.
