Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti met with the media this morning, discussing the offseason and laying the groundwork for the 2012-2013 season.

Presti avoided a lot of discussion on how contract negotiations were going with guard James Harden, saying he didn't feel comfortable with disucssing the limitations placed on the Thunder due to the new collective bargaining agreement.

Presti also said he hoped center Kendrick Perkins, who had surgery in the offseason, would be ready for the regular season opener. Presti didn't offer any hope Perkins would participate in any of the Thunder's preseason games.

The most exciting news Presti revealed was that the Thunder will unveil an alternate uniform combination this season. Presti didn't discuss the color scheme or anything related to the look of the actual uniforms, but he did confirm the Thunder would wear them at some point this season.
