Over the two seasons in which NBA teams have been allowed to sell space on jerseys to advertisers, there has been one holdout: The Oklahoma City Thunder kept their jerseys patch-free. That will end Saturday, as the Thunder have reached a four-year agreement with Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, an Oklahoma City-based national retail chain, the team tells ESPN.com. The company, founded in Oklahoma in 1964, will have its patch debut on Thunder jerseys during Saturday night’s nationally televised game against the Golden State Warriors.

The three finalists for this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player award — Milwaukee Bucks forward Giannis Antetokounmpo, Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder forward Paul George — led the balloting for this year’s All-NBA teams, which were announced by the league Thursday afternoon. Antetokounmpo and George were named to the two forward spots on the first team, while Harden was joined by Stephen Curry as the first team guards. Rounding out the first team was Nikola Jokic. Antetokounmpo and Harden were unanimous first-team selections. By making a second consecutive All-NBA team, Antetokounmpo put himself in line to be handed the largest contract in NBA history by the Bucks next summer: a five-year deal worth $247.3 million, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks. When he can receive it next July, Antetokounmpo will be one year away from free agency.
