Kendrick Perkins facing assault charge

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kendrick Perkins is facing an assault charge for an incident dating back to July.

Oklahoma City Thunder star Kendrick Perkins is facing an assault charge after allegedly punching a woman and her brother in July.

The 28-year-old faced a similar charge back in 2011, but it was reportedly dropped after he posted a bond and was released.

"We were made aware of the allegations," Thunder general manager Sam Presti said in a statement. "It is something we take seriously and are gathering more information. We will have no further comment at this time."

Perkins averaged 4.2 points and 6.0 rebounds a game last season, but is likely to have his pre-season preparations overshadowed.
