OKC Thunder news: Pokusevski, Mann and Jerome back to G League’s Blue

The Oklahoma City Thunder announced on Thursday that they have assigned Aleksej Pokusevski, Tre Mann and Ty Jerome to their G League affiliate — the Oklahoma City Blue.

With the Thunder’s next home game not played until Saturday and the Blue’s next home game played on Friday, there could definitely be a scenario where all three play the Blue game on Friday and get recalled in time for the Thunder’s game against the LA Clippers.

This is now Pokusevski’s second G League assignment in three days. The 19-year-old ended up playing in the Blue’s previous game and was subsequently recalled back with the Thunder.

Despite his recent success, Thunder head coach Mark Daigneault mentioned that Mann was due for a G League trip, so his assignment should not be that shocking.

Jerome has struggled to get consistent minutes with the Thunder all season, so this trip is likely to give him some extra practice time and maybe some game time where he plays a lot more.
