ATLANTA (AP) - A person with knowledge of the deal says the Atlanta Hawks and small forward Thabo Sefolosha have agreed to a three-year, $12 million contract.

The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Friday because teams can't officially sign free agents until the NBA's moratorium on deals is lifted on Thursday. The agreement was first reported by The Oklahoman newspaper.

The 6-foot-7 Sefolosha averaged 6.3 points as a starter in 61 games last season for Oklahoma City. He is known as a strong defender but his 3-point percentage fell from 41.9 percent in 2012-13 to 31.6 percent.

Sefolosha, a native of Switzerland, has averaged 5.8 points in eight seasons with the Chicago Bulls and Thunder.
