Reggie Jackson has been assigned to the Tulsa 66ers of the NBA's Development league. Darnell Mayberry of the Oklahoman reports that the rookie, who was called upon to step into a large role when the team lost Eric Maynor for the season, has already dressed for the 66ers Saturday night for Tulsa's game against the Iowa Energy.

Jackson, a point guard, was drafted with the 24th pick in the last draft and was expected to play limited minutes behind All-Star Russell Westbrook and Maynor. However, when Maynor went down with a season-ending knee injury in the 9th game of the season, Jackson had to step into backup role and learn on the fly. During his time on the court, Jackson averaged 3.4 points per game on 33% shooting and 1.7 assists per game.

The Thunder signed Derek Fisher this past week to help bolster a second unit that has struggled with consistency this season. Fisher will likely receive the bulk of the backup PG minutes for the remainder of the season, so Jackson's assignment to Tulsa at that point was expected.
