Thabo Sefolosha is officially an ex-Thunder player, as the free agent guard signed a three-year $12 million deal with the Atlanta Hawks on Thursday.

Sefolosha was Oklahoma City's go-to defender ever since he was acquired from Chicago during the Thunder's 2008-2009 inaugural season. But he struggled mightily on offense and dealt with injuries last season, falling out of Scott Brooks' favor and eventully out of the lineup during the playoffs.

For his career, Thabo averages 5.8 points and 3.7 rebounds and 1.1 steals. He joins a backcourt in Atlanta that features point guard Jeff Teague and three-point specialist Kyle Korver.
