Thabo to the Thunder for a lotto pick...wait, what?

Bulls trade Sefolosha for draft pick

The Bulls have traded Thabo Sefolosha to the Oklahoma City Thunder for a 2009 first-round draft pick, according to

The move is not a surprise after the Bulls traded for John Salmons on Wednesday. Salmons, a shooting guard/small forward, plays essentially the same role as Sefolosha.

Because the Thunder own the first-round picks of the Nuggets and Suns, the Bulls will receive the lesser of those two picks.

I don't know about anyone else but getting a (likely) lottery pick from the franchise formerly known as the Seattle Supersonics seems like a fleecing to me. Maybe it's karma for the crime that happened in Seattle...or maybe Stern thought a first rounder was sufficient punishment after he saw this.

EDIT: since we might be getting the Nuggets or Suns pick...I guess it probably won't be a lottery pick.
