Grant Jerrett to sign in D-League

There were quite a few unsigned second round draft picks this year who weren't foreign prospects. Such as Pierre Jackson, James Ennis, Colton Iverson, Desean Thomas, Erick Green and Alex Oriakhi who all signed with teams overseas. However Grant Jerrett did not intend to go overseas but the Thunder did not want to sign and then cut him. So they offered him to sign with their D-League affiliate the Tulsa 66ers. I actually don't find that being a bad idea at all of the Thunder doing that for Jerrett. You know the Thunder have a loaded roster when Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones struggled to get playing time last year. When I first found out that Grant Jerrett was gonna leave after his one and only year at Arizona, I thought that was a bizarre decision of him to come out after averaging 5 points and 3 rebounds. I didn't even have him in my Mock Draft. Then I was shocked with how good he looked in Summer League and wondered why he couldn't play like that in college. I do see potential in him and maybe next year he could be something for the Thunder off the bench.
