Sebastian Telfair has reportedly turned down an offer to play in Italy.
Telfair thought the offer from Pallacanestro Varese was too low, according to sources, and will remain a free agent. While still just 30 years old, Telfair is far off the fantasy radar. Jan 28 - 9:34 AM

The Lakers have reportedly expressed interest in unrestricted free agent Sebastian Telfair, although nothing in imminent at this point.

Perhaps he gets a training camp invite, but Telfair would struggle to find much playing time in the Lakers' loaded backcourt. He's not a fantasy option in any league, regardless of where he winds up.

The Clippers are "considering" Sebastian Telfair, according to RealGM.

Blake Griffin (elbow) just went down, so of course the Clippers want to add another guard. In all sincerity, the Clippers badly need some depth in the frontcourt, but with J.J. Redick's (back) status uncertain going forward, it's possible the Clippers could need a guard, too. Facing a hard salary cap and with limited flexibility, the Clippers have their backs against the wall right now.

Sebastian Telfair has signed with the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association.

Telfair will join former NBA player Andray Blatche on the Tigers and fantasy owners in the deepest of leagues can now cut bait if they were still holding on. Both Telfair and Blatche will be eligible to return to the NBA once the Chinese season is over in February, but neither hold much fantasy value if and when they return.

Sebastian Telfair scored five points and handed out one assist in 13 minutes on Wednesday, but he was waived by the Thunder shortly after the game.

The move trimmed OKC's roster to 15 players and was mandatory because of the team's expiring hardship exception, but it's also a clear indication that Russell Westbrook (hand) is nearing a return. Westbrook could be back as soon as Friday's game vs. New York.

Sebastian Telfair hit 7-of-7 shots and 4-of-4 3-pointers for 18 points, two rebounds and two assists in Wednesday's loss to the Nuggets.

This was the first real Telfair sighting we've had since he scored 14 points back on Nov. 9 and he's not going to shoot it again like this all season. Andre Roberson is back and could re-take the starting shooting guard job, while Jeremy Lamb and Anthony Morrow aren't going anywhere. Ignore this performance by Telfair, but just keep an eye on him in case he gets it going.

Sebastian Telfair scored 13 points in 18 minutes on Friday, hitting 5-of-11 shots (including two threes) with one rebound and one assist.

Telfair also had three turnovers and with players slowly making their way back he's just a desperation play in 14-16 team leagues.

Sebastian Telfair will not be suspended after committing a Flagrant-2 foul on Tyler Hansbrough during Tuesday's game.

Telfair accidentally hit Hansbrough in the face during the game, leading to his ejection, but the NBA might the right call by not punishing him further. The short-handed Thunder could ill-afford to lose a healthy player given their dire injury situation.

Sebastian Telfair played 35 minutes off the bench against the Nets on Monday with 16 points, five rebounds, six assists and three 3-pointers.

The Thunder lost Andre Roberson (foot) tonight, so they started Telfair in the second half and pushed Reggie Jackson to the shooting guard spot. As tonight's line suggests, he's capable of putting up decent stats and should play big minutes. If you're looking for short-term help at point guard and are fine with inconsistency, give Telfair a look.

Sebastian Telfair will head to the bench on Monday with the return of Reggie Jackson.

Telfair wasn't doing much with the starting role and limited offensive options around him, as he was only able to average 7.5 points and 8.0 assists over 37 minutes of action. His minutes are going to take a major hit with Jackson returning to the lineup, so if you owned him, feel free to return him to the waiver wire.
Mon, Nov 3, 2014 06:21:00 PM

Sebastian Telfair made 1-of-10 from the field for four points with four rebounds, nine assists, four steals and one turnover in 39 minutes.

He doesn't have a backup right now, so Bassy is going to get all the minutes he can handle until Reggie Jackson (ankle) is ready to go. Jackson could be back on Monday, so fantasy owners don't need to be in a rush to grab Telfair.

Sebastian Telfair is likely to start on Saturday due to the absence of Russell Westbrook (hand), and Reggie Jackson declaring himself doubtful.

Telfair has a big chance to play all the minutes he can handle is definitely worth a look as a flier for those owners in need of short-term value. Stay tuned for any impending updates.

Sebastian Telfair stepped up following the Russell Westbrook (hand) injury, playing 38 minutes for 11 points, two rebounds, seven assists, one steal and one 3-pointer.

He's the last man standing with Reggie Jackson (ankle) out, so he should have some short-term value. Of course, Telfair isn't the most talented player in the NBA and he'll obviously have some efficiency issues. The Thunder are almost certainly going to add a point guard through free agency, so fantasy owners shouldn't break the bank to pick him up. To be clear, he's worth a look in deep leagues.

Sebastian Telfair (thumb) logged 20 minutes against the Raptors on Friday, scoring five points on 1-of-7 shooting with three rebounds, five assists and one steal.

Telfair is emergency depth for the Thunder and has no real fantasy value.

Sebastian Telfair started at point guard on Thursday and it went about as well as you'd expect, making 6-of-17 shots for 12 points with one rebound, one assist, one steal, one block and two 3-pointers.

The Thunder only had 11 assists and coach Scott Brooks ran the offense like he had Russell Westbrook (rest), Kevin Durant (foot) and Reggie Jackson (wrist). Obviously, he didn't have those guys in the 120-86 loss.
