So Chucky Atkins is yet another player who finished the season on the Thunder roster, but was not there to start the season. He was acquired from Denver, along with a Nuggets first round draft pick, in exchange for Johan Petro in early January. It happened so long ago, that we covered it on our independant blog (don't worry, we transferred all of our content to this site so you can easily see the post), several weeks before making the big jump to the SBNation and creating the site you know today, WTLC. We didn't know it at the time, but this trade eventually lead to the Thunder acquiring Thabo Sefolosha shortly before the trade deadline. Thabo was traded to Oklahoma City in exchange for the worst of the Thunder first round pick stockpile, which the Thunder could easily afford, thanks to the Atkins deal. As an added bonus, Chucky was supposed to add a much needed threat from behind the arc, but did that ever really happen?
