Mo Sene was demoted to the Idaho Stampede, finishing out the final five games and playoffs with the Sonics' D-League affiliate. Sonics coach P.J. Carlesimo said the decision was made because of the sporadic time Sene received with the team. According to Carlesimo, Sene is better served playing consistently in Idaho. He'll also be a starter there.
In other news, the Sonics signed F Ronald Dupree to a 10-day contract. Dupree last played for the Tulsa 66ers, averaging 17.2 points, 5.9 rebounds, and 2.3 assists. He also played one game this season in Detroit. He's familiar with the coaching and management staff, befriending assistant GM Scott Perry in Detroit in other stints with the Pistons and talking with Perry throughout this season about the possibility of joining the Sonics.
Seattle did not offer G Eddie Gill a second 10-day contract in order to make room on the roster.
Dupree, a former LSU standout, will get some playing time, too. F Damien Wilkins is still away from the team for personal reasons and Carlesimo is uncertain when he'll return. Since F Donyell Marshall is questionable with a knee injury, Dupree and rookie Jeff Green could play some power forward against Houston on Friday.
