Kendrick Perkins was believed to be the missing piece to the Oklahoma City Thunder's championship puzzle when the team acquired him in a trade with the Boston Celtics in February 2011.

The 6'10'' center provided the Thunder with a physical presence, especially on the defensive end, and brought championship experience to a team whose core players were all under 23 years of age.

Presti's goal has been to build a team that can compete for championships for the next decade. He has some difficult personnel and financial decisions to make over the next year, including whether Perk fits into that plan.

Here are five reasons why the Thunder should trade Kendrick Perkins.
