OKLAHOMA CITY - The Thunder is missing its starting center and is in need of a few capable bodies to replace the injured Kendrick Perkins.
"If I have to, I'll do it," joked Kevin Durant following the first practice of the Thunder's 2012-13 season on Tuesday.
Fortunately, other options are available, so the franchise player won't have to mix it up in the paint this preseason. But just how capable those other options are is the question.
Cole Aldrich, Hasheem Thabeet and Daniel Orton will get plenty of chances to showcase their skills once the preseason schedule begins.
