Here we go again. Thunder players are talking about trust. That, of course, has become the go-to buzzword whenever the ball stops moving, the offense breaks down and Oklahoma City suffers the same type of avoidable loss as it did in its 112-107 defeat at Dallas on Sunday night. “We just got to do a better job of trusting our sets, actually running our sets with pace, trusting each other and I think we’ll be all right,” said Kendrick Perkins.

But as far as Rondo staying, Perkins elaborated on why he thinks that's the best move for his good friend and former teammate. "I think it's a perfect situation for him," Perkins said. "He's got a good group of guys around him. Good young coach. It's his team. He's able to play the way he's capable of playing. He's averaging almost a triple-double. He's got good talent around him. (Jared) Sullinger, Jeff (Green), ... the young kid with the long hair (Kelly Olynyk) ... he's got some talent around him. I think he wants to stay. I think he should." CSNNE.com

Perkins, who was traded to Oklahoma City in 2011 in a deal that netted Boston Jeff Green, also wouldn't rule out a return to the team that drafted him out of high school in 2003. "If the opportunity presented itself, I would," Perkins said. "But you never know. It's not on me. I have to be wanted, to come back." CSNNE.com
