Incumbent starter Thabo Sefolosha is no longer with the Oklahoma City Thunder, having chosen to sign with the Altanta Hawks. Many have wondered if it was the right decision to let Sefolosha go, but the truth is, paying $12 million over three years for an aging shooting guard would have hamstrung the Thunder’s financial flexibility.

However, Sefolosha started 61 games last season and scored 6.3 points per game on 41.5 percent shooting. He was a key component in the Thunder lineup, providing astute defense on the opponent’s best perimeter player and floor spacing on offense.

His 3-point shooting percentage has waned over the years, but the past two seasons he was shooting at 43.7 and 41.9 percent.

Now that Sefolosha is gone, the starting lineup will have to go through its first real change up since Kendrick Perkins joined the team midway through the 2010-11 season.

So, who will Scott Brooks start?
