TULSA, Okla., Feb. 5, 2011— The Tulsa 66ers, proud affiliate of the Oklahoma City Thunder, announced Saturday the acquisition of forward Moses Ehambe. Additionally, Tulsa has announced it has traded Ehambe to the Austin Toros in exchange for a third round pick in the 2011 NBA D-League Draft.
Ehambe most recently played for Ourense in Spain this past season where he played in 16 games, averaging 9.6 points and 2.4 rebounds in 20.8 minutes.
Prior to his stint in Europe, Ehambe played in two seasons for the Tulsa 66ers. During the 2008-09 campaign, he played in 50 games (four starts), averaging 10.1 points and 1.7 rebounds in 19 minutes. In 2009-10, Ehambe played in 50 games (18 starts) and averaged 13 points, 2.6 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 27.8 minutes. In those two seasons combined he shot 220-503 (.437) from the 3-point line.
“Moses was a big part of the Tulsa 66ers family the past two seasons and was instrumental in our run to the D-League finals last year,” Tulsa 66ers head coach Nate Tibbetts said. “We believe Austin is a great opportunity for Moses to further showcase his talents and we wish him great success with the Toros.”
The 66ers (23-7) currently boast the League’s best record heading into their next matchup against the Texas Legends in Frisco tonight at 7 p.m. inside Dr. Pepper Arena.
