Schortsanitis' draft rights were dealt from the Hawks to the Thunder on Tuesday, Atlanta's official website reports.
Schortsanitis was selected 34th overall out of Greece in the 2003 draft, but has since played his entire career in Europe. At 6-10, 350 pounds, Schortsanitis was once affectionately nicknamed "Baby Shaq" and can be remembered for dominating the USA Men's National Team during Greece's 2006 FIBA World Championship run. Nonetheless, the 29-year-old center is unlikely to ever play in the NBA and only had his rights traded so the Hawks could acquire Thabo Sefolosha on Tuesday.
