SACRAMENTO — The Oklahoma City Thunder has signed rookie forward Grant Jerrett for the remainder of the season.

Jerrett, the 40th overall pick in last year’s draft, has played the entire season in the NBA Development League with the Thunder-owned Tulsa 66ers. In 27 games with the 66ers, Jerrett has averaged 15.1 points and 6.1 rebounds in 29.3 minutes.

A 6-foot-10 sharpshooting power forward, Jerrett has hit 36.4 percent of his 3-pointers this season, ranking second on the 66ers.

Jerrett will be with the Thunder through the postseason.

The Thunder has made similar late-season additions with Robert Vaden, a 2010 second-round pick who was signed in April 2011, and Mustafa Shakur in March 2010. Neither appeared in a game for the Thunder.

Jerrett played one season at Arizona before declaring for the NBA Draft. He averaged 5.2 points and 3.6 rebounds in 17.8 minutes with the Wildcats. He made 40.5 percent of his 3-pointers in his lone season at Arizona.
