The Oklahoma City Thunder has begun negotiating with potential naming rights partners for the Ford Center arena, team officials announced Aug. 26.
The Thunder officially has terminated the existing naming rights agreement with the Oklahoma Ford Dealers, as a new agreement could not be reached.
The original contract allowed the team to terminate the existing agreement if an NBA franchise came to Oklahoma City.
Until new negotiations are complete, the team will have no further public comment.
