OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma City Thunder is sending first-round draft choice Cole Aldrich to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA Development League.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti announced the move Wednesday. Aldrich has played in five games this season for Oklahoma City, averaging 1.0 points and 2.2 rebounds in about 9.6 minutes per game.

The New Orleans Hornets picked the 6-foot-11 former Kansas star 11th overall in the NBA draft in June before trading him to the Thunder.
