“I'm sitting here thinking and it might be time for a change,” Perkins' tweet read.
It was not immediately clear what the statement meant. But the timing and content allowed for obvious speculation.
As his production has declined the past few seasons, so has his playing time. And against the Suns on Sunday, Perkins played only 16 minutes, his lowest output of the season.
Perkins was one of the first players out of the locker room Sunday night after the game. He's usually one of the last.
The immediate thought was that his tweet was in direct correlation with his current role in the Thunder rotation.
But on Monday night, Perkins sent out another tweet, this one attempting to reassure fans that his tweet wasn't a cryptic message signaling his unhappiness in Oklahoma City, but rather a personal matter.
His tweet: “Let me clear something up. I wasn't talking about leaving OKC. I was talking to some of my family members. I love playing here. #frommyheart”
Through three games, the Thunder is 15-of-68 on 3-pointers, the worst mark in the NBA.
