This just in from the Oklahoma City Thunder… The Minnesota Timberwolves have traded former Wizard Etan Thomas to OKC in exchange for Minnesota’s 2010 second round draft pick and a conditional 2010 second round draft pick. Oklahoma sent guards Chucky Atkins and Damien Wilkins to the Timberwolves.

In a press release, Thunder general manager Sam Presti said: “We are pleased to welcome Etan Thomas to the Thunder family. Etan adds experience and depth to our front court as well as a defensive mentality and competitiveness that we value.”


It’s a homecoming of sorts for Thomas, who played high school basketball at Booker T. Washington High in Tulsa, OK.
