Fans probably won't notice a big difference during the upcoming NBA season. But plans for renovations are mapped out and will begin as soon as possible. Here's a list of plans that fans will see added to the Ford Center in the next few years.

•Timeline: No official completion date has been set for the renovations, but officials say it will likely be finished sometime after basketball season ends in 2010. Most of the Ford Center's larger projects won't begin until after the basketball season in 2009.

•Locker rooms: Entirely new locker rooms will be built for the NBA, but won't be ready this season. In the meantime, Oklahoma City's new team will shower in the Yard Dawgz locker room. New carpet and a paint job in the team's new colors will be installed for the upcoming season.

•NBA offices: New offices for the team's management will be constructed on the third level of the Ford Center.

•Outdoor gardens/patios: Four outdoor gardens and lounge areas, featuring bars and seating, will be built on the rooftops of the Ford Center. Patrons will get access to rooftop gardens on event days without charge.
