OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - The Oklahoma City Thunder have named Tulsa 66ers head coach Darko Rajakovic as an assistant coach with the NBA team.

Thunder general manager Sam Presti announced that Rajakovic will join the Thunder after spending the past two seasons as the head coach of the 66ers. Tulsa is the Thunder’s NBA D-League affiliate.
