In 2007, the Oklahoma City Thunder used the No. 2 pick in the draft to take Kevin Durant. On Wednesday, they added another former No. 2 pick, albeit one not nearly as successful as Durant. Hasheem Thabeet, who was selected second overall in the 2009 draft, agreed to a two-year deal with Oklahoma City on Wednesday, according to Marc Spears of Yahoo! Sports.

By signing with the Thunder, Thabeet will be joining his fourth team in four NBA seasons. He played in 113 games with the Grizzlies before he was traded to the Houston Rockets midway through his sophomore season. Thabeet played in just seven games over parts of two seasons in Houston, and finished the 2011-12 season with the Portland Trail Blazers.
Thabeet has averaged 2.2 points and 2.7 rebounds per game during his three-year NBA career. At 7-foot-3, he will provide size for the Thunder.
