Thunder assign White to Tulsa 66ers

The Oklahoma City Thunder have assigned forward D.J. White to

the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League.

Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti announced the move

Wednesday.

White had two previous stints with Tulsa this season, appearing

in 10 games and averaging 20.2 points, 11.1 rebounds and 1.4 blocks

in 39.2 minutes per contest.

In 11 appearances for the Thunder this season, he has averaged

5.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 9.1 minutes per game.

White, a first-round draft pick out of Indiana in 2008, missed

most of his rookie year following surgery to remove a benign growth

from his jaw. He underwent surgery earlier this year to repair his

injured right thumb.
