The Oklahoma City Thunder G League affiliate — the Oklahoma City Blue — will continue to play their 2022-23 home games at Paycom Center, per The Oklahoman.
This is a reverse of course after Thunder general manager Sam Presti revealed during his exit interview this past April that the NBA and G League wanted the Blue to play elsewhere and not share an arena with the Thunder.
It appears that issue is resolved — at least for next season.
The Blue spent their first season playing at Paycom Center last season after being forced to move from Cox Convention Center.
For the Thunder, the benefits of the Thunder and Blue sharing an arena are huge as it gives players on both levels an easier sense of staying on the same page and making roster decisions seamless.
