OKC Thunder is getting a new court

Oklahoman Modified: November 12, 2008 at 9:35 am •  Published: November 12, 2008
The Thunder is getting a new court next month.

Connor Sport Court International built the current Ford Center floor with 3-point lines one foot short of the NBA’s 23-feet, 9-inch standards.

The $110,000 court arrived late last month and had to be sanded and repainted days before the Thunder’s Oct. 29 opener. The new court, being constructed in Michigan at no charge to the team or Oklahoma City, will be slightly longer on both ends to better fit the Ford Center.

Jon Isaacs, a vice president for Connor, said the current court would likely be donated to a needy school.
