Oklahoma City Thunder Notes, Quotes 2009-02-21
--The Thunder added to their swingman depth with Thursday's trade for Thabo Sefolosha. Oklahoma City also received cash considerations from Chicago in exchange for a 2009 first round pick.

"We are excited to add Thabo to our team," GM Sam Presti said. "With this trade we add another defensive-minded perimeter player that we feel has the opportunity to grow with our organization."

Sefolosha (6-7, 215), currently in his third season, owns career averages of 5.0 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.4 assists and 16.6 minutes in 183 NBA games (40 starts). He has appeared in 43 games (14 starts) this season with the Bulls, averaging 4.5 points, 2.9 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 17.1 minutes.

OKC owns three first-round picks in the 2009 draft. The Thunder holds the rights to its own pick, the Denver pick acquired in the Johan Petro trade and the San Antonio pick received in the Kurt Thomas deal. Chicago will get the least favorable of the Denver and San Antonio picks.

--OKC added to the frontcourt stable Thursday by acquiring forward Malik Rose and cash considerations from New York in exchange for forward Chris Wilcox.

"We are pleased to add Malik to our roster," Sam Presti said. "He brings a wealth of experience and veteran leadership to our team."

Rose (6-7, 255), a two-time NBA champion currently in his 13th season, owns career averages of 6.2 points, 4.2 rebounds and 16.5 minutes in 793 NBA games. He has appeared in 18 games this season with the Knicks, averaging 1.7 points, 1.7 rebounds and 8.9 minutes.

QUOTE TO NOTE: "We feel the right decision for us was to move in another direction. We're disappointed it did not work out." -- Thunder general manager Sam Presti on rescinding the Tyson Chandler trade for medical reasons.
