OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma – Sebastian Telfair is returning to the NBA after agreeing to a one-year deal at the veteran’s minimum with the Oklahoma City Thunder, according to SB Nation.

The 29-year-old played last season in the Chinese Basketball Association. He was also the 13th overall NBA pick in 2004 and played nine seasons with seven teams.

The Thunder were looking for help at point-guard after losing Derek Fisher, who recently retired to coach the New York Knicks.
