The first visible sign of Oklahoma City's new NBA team will be seen this week.

The soon-to-be named team will wear NBA-OKC jerseys in this week's Orlando Pro Summer League, which kicks off with Oklahoma City taking on the Indiana Pacers at 2 p.m. today. The league runs through Friday.

The NBA has approved the use of the generic jerseys throughout the team's five-game summer league schedule rather than have the team wear what is now an outdated Sonics jersey following last week's settlement between the team and city of Seattle that made the franchise's relocation official.

The team also will be referred to as Oklahoma City in the official box scores of the summer league.

Second-year forward Jeff Green, first-round draft picks Russell Westbrook and D.J. White and second-round pick DeVon Hardin are scheduled to compete this week for Oklahoma City.
