Default Thunder trade first round pick for Sefolosha

I don't know a lot about him. From what I hear it is a solid trade.

After learning about him and watching some videos I like this trade a lot.

I think we are trying to get better defensively. Sefolosha is a great defensive player along with Westbrook and Green who are both solid defenders. I think we tried to make a move for Chandler because of his defense. Durant needs to improve on defense so we can have a great defensive team, we know he can score but to become a superstar like Kobe and Lebron he needs to be able to play defense like they do.

Sefolosha is a more experienced version of Kyle Weaver; pretty important since Desmond Mason is out for the year.

It looks like Ron Adams hands are all over this move. Ron was brought in as a defensive specialist and lead asst. coach from Chicago two months ago so he had been one of Sefolosha's coaches since he was drafted and entered the league.

So, what do you guys think of him now that hes had some games with the Thunder? Still like the trade?

How has he been for you/what type of numbers has he been putting up.

Just curious....

I like the defense he brings. I still think we should have let the Chandler trade go through.

Tough call. The Thunder would be spending 10, 11 million a year the next few years to get a tall guy who was playing hurt and wouldn't carry them anywhere special while doing it
