The trade that sent James Harden from the Oklahoma City Thunder to the Houston Rockets is a few days old, but questions keep coming about the deal since it came so close to the start of the NBA season. The trade did shake up the Thunder roster by losing Harden and others, but OKC also received solid players in return, such as Kevin Martin and 2012 lottery pick Jeremy Lamb.

Thunder guard Thabo Sefolosha spoke with the media after practice and said that the team needs to move on:

"I think we got to move forward and we're happy to have some good players out of it. It's a little different. Obviously we're never happy to see guys that we learn to really friends with leave but it's part of the business."

Sefolosha was asked about how the trade will affect him as well as they rest of the Thunder, but he just deferred all of those type of rotation questions to head coach Scott Brooks.

Another positive thing about the trade for the Thunder is that the same starting five from last year is a good way to start the season. Sefolosha mentioned how having that group stay together is key for team chemistry.
