NewsOK Sports 10:20 a.m. Thanks for joining us on the Power Lunch chat! Plenty to talk about today, from OU-Michigan in 2025, 2026 (long ways away, but still ...), to Thunder rumblings with Perry Jones, Anthony Morrow and the Thunder losing an assistant, to Oklahoma State's ongoing investigation.

Send us your questions and Mike Sherman will be on at 11 a.m. for some conversation. Thanks!
NewsOK Sports 11:01 a.m. Greetings folks. Let's start.
Billy in 4C 11:01 a.m. What do you believe OKC's 10 man rotation will look like?
NewsOK Sports 11:02 a.m. Starters: Durant, Westbrook, Lamb, Ibaka, Perkins
Bench: Jackson, Roberson, Jones, Adams, Collison
If Adams supplants Perk as a starter, watch out for McGary in the rotation. He'll be in the rotation by the season's end. But for starters this is my prediction.
Mutt Cuts 11:02 a.m. Who do you think will start between Lamb, Jones, Roberson, and Jackson? I hear Roberson's name a lot because of his defense, but because he has no offense won't OKC be in a worse situation than when it was when Thabo was on the floor? I like Jones or Lamb, and Jones has shown that he can play defense.
NewsOK Sports 11:03 a.m. If you’re setting the odds, Lamb has got to be the favorite because a) he’s healthy and b) he can shoot without hitting the side of the backboard. My pal Darnell Mayberry keeps writing/talking about Andre Roberson as a starter, how he is more Tony Allen than Thabo, how he creates extra possessions and scores off tips and back cuts. But with Roberson in the game his defender has a foot in the lane. Not good for Durant, Westbrook, Ibaka. Lamb has to snap out of it, stop talking about how he didn’t used to care about defense (he seems to say that every time he’s asked about it) and start playing as if it’s priority 1. I might have given Perry Jones the edge, but his injury cost him a summer in the gym.
Puddin Taine 11:03 a.m. If Durant is destined to leave in 2016, what could OKC get for him in a trade to New York or Washington?
Mike Sherman 11:05 a.m. That "if" is a big one.
