The Oklahoman reported in a recent article that Mayor David Hold will consider building a new arena for the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The team’s contract with Paycom Center expires in 2023 but the city was able to agree to a three-year extension with the arena.

The Thunder have played at Paycom Center — previously called Chesapeake Energy Arena — since the team arrived from Seattle in 2008.

A new arena for the Thunder locks up the long-term future with the franchise staying in Oklahoma City — although that was never really into question as the franchise is still relatively new.

The Thunder are owned by Clay Bennett — who grew up in Oklahoma City and owns his businesses locally.
