In light of recent events, it appears that the Seattle Sonics basketball team will soon call Oklahoma City home.  Also, team chairman Clay Bennett said this week that he plans to drop the "Sonics" name and colors after the move is made so that if Seattle gets another team in the future, they have to option to use that same name and color scheme.

That having been said, when the team does move to OKC, they'll need a new nickname.  You've already heard David Reed's suggestion of "Sooner Sonics," but since we now know that they'll be dropping the "Sonics" name that won't work.  Here are some other names that we came up with:

David's suggestions:
Oklahoma Outlaws
Oklahoma Rush

My suggestions:
Oklahoma Generals
Oklahoma Tornadoes
Oklahoma Anglers
Oklahoma Boomers

What would you nickname the team?
