Relevant factor to consider in Perk's postseason: He was a +10.1/100 possessions in the regular season with Russell Westbrook on the floor.
But the potential 12th pick (via Toronto) is likely to be one OKC keeps & brings in, putting that player on the summer league squad as well.
OKC also could have the 12th overall pick, the 29th and the 32nd pick in this year's draft. Unlikely OKC will select & bring in all three...
Big fans of all the people that immediately responded "DUH YES" without reading the 2,000 words I just wrote about it.
Jeremy Lamb, Perry Jones, Daniel Orton, DeAndre Liggins and, if they let him play, Reggie Jackson all will compete at summer league.
This was my last day in the presence of the great DeAndre Liggins until July. And he couldn't guarantee us he'll be back next year. Sad day!

Next time you step on a bug just think, it can be a parent and have a hour left of life to spend with it's kids that it's racing back to lol
I'm 99 percent sure Perk is back. I'm 95 percent sure K-Mart is not.
Wanna talk about it, we can talk about it. But those are my thoughts. Kind of tired of hearing it.
People keep tossing out the word "amnesty" like it's a free pass for not paying a player. Makes no sense. And no, KD shouldn't be criticized
Words of wisdom for today is Don't listen to people who don't care about you. 1
Perk: "Russ do one thing that stands out to me. He gives everybody swag. He gives everybody swagger to Coach Brooks to KD to myself."
Kendrick Perkins on the amnesty possibility: "I'm pretty sure I'll be back next year."
Martin: "I have a vision of what I want my career to be. And more than anything that's happiness and being part of something special."
Kevin Martin: "This is a place I'd love to be ... I'm going to have some options out there so I'm going to see how the process plays out."
Kevin Martin: "This is a place I'd love to be ... I'm going to have some options out there so I'm going to see ow the process plays out."
Fisher said he's going to not comment right now until he has time to review everything.
Derek Fisher on Billy Hunter's lawsuit: "I literally just became aware before I walked in the room."
Derek Fisher says he was just made aware of Billy Hunter's lawsuit moments ago. "I won't choose to comment at this point," Fisher said.
Derek Fisher: "I definitely would love to play again next season ... I would enjoy the opportunity to come back."
Russ said he talked to Derrick Rose a couple days after his injury. Said Rose told him to "take his time" and "listen to his body."
Westbrook on if he ever got worked up about the officiating watching: "Of course. Because I knew I couldn't get a tech sitting up there."
KD was asked if he felt like this was a wasted year. "Nothing is ever a wasted year for me. It's basketball. I've grown so much as a man."
KD: "I love Kevin Martin. I love everything he stands for ... I would love for him to do whatever he feels is right for himself."
KD: "I think last night after the game, I don't normally drink Gatorade, but I think I drank four or five Gatorades after the game."
KD on where his game can go from here: "Be more efficient. Only place I can go is up."
Scott Brooks asked to evaluate himself. Said he'd have to think about it later. "Call me... maybe," he said, obviously referencing the song.
Thanks to all of Oklahoma for the support this season. It's been a blessing to play here. Thank all the true fans. 1 love
Durant: "Sometimes you've got to ride out the storms to get to the sunshine."
Durant: "I gave it all I had for my team. I left it all out on the floor."
KD played all 48 minutes tonight.
Hollins on Tony Allen's shirt thing: "Same thing I said to him when he didn't block out Durant on the shot. 'What the hell are you doing?'"
Lionel Hollins on Zach Randolph: "He came out snorting and grunting from the beginning."
KD's line was horrific, and he missed that big shot, but that dude played his heart out tonight.
Crowd currently chanting "O-K-C! O-K-C!"
Game. Series. Season.
The Thunder's season ends, 88-84 to the Grizzlies as a miraculous comeback falls just short.
Actually that look was way better than I thought it was. KD makes that one in his sleep.
KD got a decent look. Not great. But decent. One that he can make for sure.
OKC has a chance.
For what it's worth, I'd say 90 percent of the arena is still full. It was just SOME fans that left early.
Thunder looks like it just discovered this thing called the "drive and dish"
Don't give up yet, you guys. Maybe Tony Allen will throw a magic 12-point towel on the court.
Thunder fans hitting the exits.
Wow, Nick Collison genuinely cannot catch a break.

KD is 4-17 with five turnovers. And the Thunder are only down six. Somehow.
Officially, it was "unsportsmanlike conduct" against Tony Allen on that 3-pointer from @DerekFisher when T-shirt was thrown onto floor.
It was 60-49 before Tony Allen threw the towel on the floor. OKC closed the quarter on a 13-4 run after it.
It came after the buzzer, but Jerryd Bayless just drilled an 80-foot one-handed heave.
The towel sparked this. Unbelievable. The NBA is so awesome.
The way I understand it, T. Allen threw a towel on the court as Fish was shooting the 3 in front of Memphis' bench. That's hy the FG counted
For a second, I thought Tony Allen was being all metaphorical, you know, throwing in the towel for the Thunder as Fisher clanged a 3.
Much better ball movement in this third quarter.
Tony Allen got called for a technical for accidentally throwing a towel on the court as Fisher shot a 3. Basket counts, and a free throw.
I'm going to choose to believe KD missed that free throw on purpose to create a cool three-point play.
TAYSHAUN PRINCE CAN PALM THE BALL.
That first half had sort of a Game 5 of the 2012 Finals feel to it. Will the second half go that way, or do they have some fight left?
More cause for concern: the Thunder has been outscored in this series 92-75 in the third quarter.
