The Thunder announced Thursday they have assigned Jeremy Lamb to the Tulsa 66ers.
Lamb obviously was seen as a prize prospect in the James Harden deal, but hasn’t factored in at all in the regular rotation. It’s pretty simple with the Thunder though. If you’re a young player and you’re not getting playing time, you’re not just going to show up, put on a warmup and sit on the bench.
Lamb has appeared in eight games this season averaging 2.1 points in 4.3 minutes.
Don’t be surprised if Lamb is called right back up soon. The Thunder tend to do that. Let a guy run to Tulsa to get a little playing time and then return right away back to the team.
What’s pretty clear is that the Thunder are looking to build a powerhouse in Tulsa. Lamb, DeAndre Liggins, Daniel Orton — be sure to answer your phone the next time it rings, Perry.
Lamb will be in uniform for the 66ers Nov. 30 against the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.
