The Atlanta Hawks have reached an agreement with free agent guard Thabo Sefolosha on a three-year deal worth $12 million according to a report by RealGM's Shams Charania:

Sefolosha spent the last six seasons with the Oklahoma City Thunder where he served as the team's starting shooting guard and primary wing defender. He appeared in 61 games with the Thunder this season.

Sefolosha adds another defender to Atlanta's back court and while he does have offensive limitations his real value comes on the defensive end, which is an area where the Hawks were weakest once you got past DeMarre Carroll last season.

At this point, Sefolosha isn't a likely starter, but he is quality defensive depth to bring off the bench in a reserve role.

Update:

The Oklahoman's Thunder beat writer Darnell Mayberry confirmed with Sefolosha that he is coming to Atlanta.
