Who would have guessed that these two rookies, Jeremy Lamb of the Thunder and Kendall Marshall of the Suns would already be getting their D-League assignments?
According to RealGM, Kendall will be spending time with the Bakersfield Jam and Jeremy Lamb will be holding it down with the Tulsa 66ers.
The Oklahoma City Thunder have assigned Jeremy Lamb to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League.
Lamb, who was originally acquired from the Houston Rockets along with Kevin Martin on Oct. 27, has appeared in eight games this season averaging 2.1 points in 4.3 minutes.
The Phoenix Suns have assigned rookie guard Kendall Marshall to the Bakersfield Jam, the Suns’ NBA Development League affiliate.
The assignment is the first for Marshall and the 21st of the 2012-13 NBA and NBA D-league seasons.
Marshall (6-4, 195, North Carolina) has appeared in six games for the Suns this season, averaging 1.2 points and 5.7 minutes. Selected by the Suns in the first round (13th overall) of the 2012 NBA Draft, Marshall was a two-year contributor for the Tar Heels. In 73 career NCAA games, Marshall averaged 7.2 points and 8.0 assists.
It’s hard out here for a rookie guard. Just ask Bradley Beal.
