Kyle Weaver Kyle Weaver

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Oklahoma City has acquired Kyle Weaver from the Charlotte Bobcats in exchange for a 2009 second-round pick, according to league sources.

Weaver, a 6-foot-6 guard out of Washington State, was drafted by Charlotte with the 38th overall pick in this year's draft after averaging 12.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and 4.3 assists as a senior.

Weaver is known as a gritty defender and multi-dimensional player who can play point guard, shooting guard and small forward.

In exchange for Weaver, Oklahoma City sent Charlotte the second-round pick acquired in the 2006 trade that sent center Mikki Moore to New Jersey. Oklahoma City will now have two first-round picks in the 2009 draft, their own and San Antonio's, and their own second-round selection.
