While I like one of the deals made, the other only makes sense if Malik Rose is following the Joe Smith method out of town. Rose was a Spurs' sparkplug back in the day, but I forgot he was even still in the league.
Smith didn't get traded again, and Chris Wilcox got his wish. To 'make' room for new guard Thabo Sefolosha, OKC waived Sene -- officially labeling yet another first round pick as a bust.
Sene wasn't playing at all, but it is still a curious move when other players could have been cut. The Thunder needed some new life, and there is only one way to do that in today's NBA.
My hope is that D.J. White is almost ready to make his debut, and Thabo finds a home in the starting five. Not too much to ask, right?
