Oklahoma City getting another pro basketball team
" It certainly helps," said Thunder Vice President of Communication Dan Mahoney. "It was a tremendous benefit to have the team as close as Tulsa. Some D-League teams are a plane ride away from their parent NBA club. To have the team in Tulsa was beneficial. It'll be even more beneficial to have it here but again it was not something we were planning or wanted to do. We were happy in Bixby, happy in the Tulsa area but the business decision came up where we had no other choice."
The team will play their 24 game home schedule at the Cox Convention Center.
