The Oklahoma City are going home empty handed yet again in the postseason and there will be plenty of decisions made over the summer as to what can be done to make sure the present day Thunder don’t become the 90s era Jazz where they always come a step short of achieving immortality.
Among the players the Thunder will have to decide on is Kendrick Perkins and at the moment it’s not looking too positive as to whether or not he’ll be back in 2014-15.
Head coach Scott Brooks was directly asked about Perkins future with the team and was non-committal at best with his indirect answer.
Brooks when asked if it’s time to turn the page on Perkins: “That remains to be seen. There’s a lot of work to be done this summer.”

Perkins wasn’t that big of a help for the Thunder in the series at least not the way they needed. Had Perkins showed up for the Thunder, they may have been able to force a Game 7 or not even needed one all and ended up on the right side of a six game series.
The fact of the matter is though that the Thunder are out and so too might be Perkins. It all comes down to what kind of money the Thunder have to spend in the offseason and whether or not Perkins did enough to warrant a spot on their roster and a place on the payroll.
