Kendrick Perkins met his goal.

The Oklahoma City Thunder center wanted to come into training camp at 275 pounds.

He's now 267.

Asked what he was at the end of the playoffs, Perkins didn't hesitate.

"About 398," he said.

"Nah, I'm just playing. I mean 298."

The 30-pounds-lighter Perkins will make his 2011-12 debut Sunday at Dallas in the team's preseason opener. Last season, after he arrived from Boston in a midseason trade, not only was Perkins not at his ideal weight, but he also was not healthy.
