OKLAHOMA CITY, Oct. 31, 2015 - The Oklahoma City Blue added six players on Saturday by selecting guards Warren Niles and Jarekious Bradley in the 2015 NBA D-League Draft and acquiring guards J.P.

The Blue traded Rodney Carney (13th overall pick) and its 2016 second round pick to Delaware along with Stephan Hicks (32nd overall pick) to Fort Wayne.
