The Oklahoma City Thunder have assigned rookie point guard Reggie Jackson to their NBA Development League affiliate in Tulsa. General manager Sam Presti announced that Jackson would join the 66ers in time for their game against the Iowa Energy on Saturday night. Jackson spent the past two months as Oklahoma City's backup point guard after Eric Maynor sustained a season-ending knee injury, but his role was significantly reduced after the Thunder signed veteran Derek Fisher this week. It's the first D-League assignment for Jackson, the 24th pick last year.
