While in Houston this summer, Kendrick Perkins was involved in a fender bender, where allegedly, he and his brother-in-law punched a male and female, after getting into an argument about the incident.

Perkins posted a $1,000 bond on Thursday.

The Oklahoma City center is coming off an abysmal postseason, where he finished with a player efficiency rating of -.07 in eleven games, the worst in NBA playoff history.

Over the summer, Thunder general manager Sam Presti elected not to amnesty Perkins, who the organization believes is still a valuable rim-protecter and rebounder.

In regards to the incident, Presti had this to say, “We are aware of the situation and take this matter seriously. We are in the process of gathering more information and have no further comment at this time.”
