$14.5 million Thunder practice facility won't be ready before season

Once the Oklahoma City Thunder's practice facility is completed, it will be another lure for free agents looking for a home.

"It will be a really nice facility, but it won't be extravagant," said Russell who has worked with other projects like the University of Oklahoma tennis center. "It will provide everything they need and serve them well."

Thunder officials are uncertain when they will relocate from the temporary practice facility in north Oklahoma City. One option is to move as soon the new facility is completed late this year. Another option is to wait until after the season.

Tom Anderson, the city's executive director of special projects, said the organization and the city want to make sure the project is done right.

"We have been incredibly fortunate to have our current facility," Presti said. "It will continue to serve us while our permanent facility is being completed. In terms of a time frame for moving in, that's something we'll evaluate as the project draws closer to completion."
