While appearing on TNT Monday night, Perkins had this to say about Westbrook and Durant: 

Not only did Perkins break the news that Westbrook and Durant are speaking, but he added that he wouldn't be surprised if Durant eventually came back to Oklahoma. Perkins also went on to say he thinks Westbrook will re-sign with the Thunder. 

"In my opinion, I don't think Russ going nowhere," Perkins said. "He's that type of guy, he want to stick it out, he just wants you to give him the pieces and he wanna roll with it. He not going and trying to run or chase."

Perkins spent four years in OKC with Westbrook and Durant, and was very known to be very close to both guys.
