The Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Tuesday that they have assigned rookie forwards Ousmane Dieng and Jaylin Williams to their G League affiliate — the Oklahoma City Blue.
The Blue play their home opener on Wednesday, Nov. 9 against the Santa Cruz Warriors — the Golden State Warriors G League affiliate.
Chances are, both Dieng and Williams will suit up and play for the Blue and then get recalled back to the Thunder before their home game against the Milwaukee Bucks later that same day. This is a tactic the Thunder used a lot last season with G League assignments and a benefit of having both the NBA and G League teams play in the same arena.
In nine games, Dieng is averaging 3.3 points, 2.2 rebounds and 1.7 assists with the Thunder. In two games, Williams is averaging three points and 3.5 rebounds with the Thunder.
