Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-26

Oklahoma City Thunder Getting Inside 2008-12-26
The Thunder's search for roster help has led overseas. Oklahoma City signed former New Jersey center Nenad Krstic to an offer sheet reportedly worth $15.8 million over three years.

Krstic has been playing with Triumph Lyubertsy of Russia's Superleague A this season. The Nets continue to hold his NBA rights and have seven days to match the offer.

It's believed that New Jersey won't match the deal, instead keeping as much financial flexibility as possible with an eye on 2010. The Thunder has one of the league's lowest payrolls, thus the ability to take on Krstic and remain under the salary cap.

Krstic (7-foot-0, 213 pounds) was the 24th overall pick in the 2002 NBA Draft by the Nets. He was averaging 10.4 points and 5.1 rebounds in 21 minutes per game for Triumph in Superleague play. The Serbian national holds NBA averages of 11.3 points and 5.7 rebounds in four seasons with New Jersey.

Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti declined comment on the move since New Jersey continues to hold Krstic's rights. The team, however, did issue a press release Monday confirming the offer sheet.

HAWKS 99, THUNDER 88: Kevin Durant scored 28 points and Oklahoma City was down just one going into the fourth quarter, but once again didn't have enough down the stretch to leave Atlanta with a victory.

Jeff Green tied a career high with 14 rebounds and finished with 18 points for the Thunder, which dropped to 3-26 overall and 1-13 on the road. Chris Wilcox had 19 points and a season-high 12 boards.

The Hawks were led by the second career triple-double from Joe Johnson and 21 points from Marvin Williams. Durant drilled a 19-footer with 3:18 left to cut Atlanta's lead to 85-81, but Oklahoma City didn't score on the next three possessions.
