Aldrich Heading to the D-League

Mayberry reports at Oklahoman.

OKC Thunder Assigns Cole Aldrich to NBA Development League

It isn’t too surprising, given that Aldrich has only appeared in five games thus far, averaging under 10 minutes per.  I don’t think this reflects on Aldrich as much as it does the fact that the Thunder are a deep team and already are struggling to find sufficient minutes for everyone in the front line, with a healthy Jeff Green back to fight with Collison and Ibaka for minutes.

Hopefully he will take advantage of the opportunity and improve his game.  If he doesn’t eventually become a better player for the Thunder, he can at least increase his value for the team and become a handy bargaining chip down the road.
