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.
