The Associated Press reports:
OKLAHOMA CITY - (AP) - The NBA franchise that relocated from Seattle to Oklahoma City during the current offseason will announce
its new nickname at an early evening news conference. Thunder seems to be the popular choice of area fans.
We had dozens of suggestions from KXII Sports Blog readers throughout the summer months. See them here: http://www.kxii.com/blogs/sports/17009376.html
The team's website says "to check back at 5 p.m. Wednesday for full coverage."
You can do that by going to http://www.nba.com/oklahomacity/
I'm sure the KXII Sports Team will have reaction in later blog posts.
