Thunder Have No Plans To Amnesty Kendrick Perkins
The Oklahoma City Thunder bowed out to the Memphis Grizzlies in the Western Conference semi-finals, and now there are several questions the organizations needs to answer.
The biggest question that needs to be answered is what will the Thunder do with center Kendrick Perkins. Thunder GM Sam Presti commented about Perkins and the idea of amnestying him today via Thunderous Intentions.
Sam Presti on the amnesty clause: “We just haven’t considered using the provision…We think Perk has a lot of value to our team.”

I agree with Presti, because it makes no sense to give Perkins a ton of money to just go away. Regardless of how bad a playoffs he had, he still holds value.
Now trading Perkins makes sense and is something that OKC will probably consider, but giving him money to walk, is not a Sam Presti thing.
