The Thunder have acquired Randy Foye before today's NBA trade deadline, according to reports. The Denver Nuggets are sending the 10th year shooting guard to Oklahoma City in exchange for backup point guard D.J. Augustin, forward Steve Novak, and two second round draft picks, according to Adrian Wojnarowski:

Foye, a 32 year old, is averaging 6 points on 35.1% shooting in just under 20 minutes of play during his 3rd year in Denver. The Thunder have been hunting for a consistent shooting guard ever since Kevin Martin left OKC for Minnesota. Andre Roberson, the starting shooting guard, is an elite defender but is still working to develop his offensive game while Dion Waiters, acquired a year ago, has been inconsistent in the role.

Augustin, initially slotted as the Thunder's backup PG heading into this season, struggled in the role and eventually was supplanted by rookie Cameron Payne. Novak has struggled to get playing time with the Thunder after he was acquired at the trade deadline a year ago. According to Wojnarowski, Denver is looking for a third team to take on Novak's contract, which is paying him $3.75 million and is expiring after this season.

More to follow as details of the trade develop.
