On the OKC Thunder's offseason and potential free agent signings:
It is very possible the Thunder retains all 15 players on the roster, which would mean re-signing Nazr Mohammed and Daequan Cook. It's also possible [GM Sam Presti] could deal Nate Robinson, Byron Mullens and not re-sign Nazr and/or Cook. The whole free agent thing is goofy because there is no CBA and no one can do anything until one is in place. The most intriguing free agent to me might be Carl Landry, but Nawlins presumably will hang onto him any way possible.
On what fans should expect out of Kendrick Perkins next season:
Given his price tag, it had better be quite a bit more offensively. It was good to hear Perk say he wasn't too pleased with himself, but the guy was 75 percent healthy, tops.
