According to a source, Kendrick Perkins will return to the Thunder.

According to a source, Kendrick Perkins will stay with the Oklahoma City Thunder heading into the 2013-14 season. There were rumors spreading of a possibility that Perkins could be amnestied, but General Manager Sam Presti told The Oklahoman differently. Said Presti:

"We think Perk has a lot of value to our team," he continued, "He's a member of a team that won 60 games and helped us to our third division title in three years. I don't know that we can discount that."

Well said, Mr. Presti, well said.

Despite Perkins' poor performance in the Playoffs, obviously the Thunder find something positive in Perkins. What is it? His work ethic? His aggressiveness? All of the above, more than likely. He's determined to come back better than before, as he said in his exit interview. So, will he? The fear of the unknown is probably hitting Presti and Coach Scott Brooks pretty hard, but you won't know if you don't try.
