The Oklahoma City Thunder are recalling forward D.J. White from the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League.
Oklahoma City general manager Sam Presti announced the move
Monday. The 6-foot-9 White had played three games for Tulsa,
averaging 17.3 points and 9.7 rebounds in 37.7 minutes per game.
The 22-year-old rookie has yet to appear in a game for the
Thunder this season after undergoing jaw surgery in October. He was
cleared by team doctors last Monday to resume full-contact drills.
The former Indiana star was the 29th overall pick by the Detroit
Pistons in last year's NBA draft. He was acquired by the Thunder in
a draft-day trade.
The Thunder's ownership group also controls the 66ers and made
the Tulsa team its D-League affiliate.
