Many fans wondered if Kevin Durant would be upset about the Oklahoma City Thunder trading Serge Ibaka for Victor Oladipo and others but he’s fine with it. Oklahoma City sent Ibaka to the Orlando Magic for Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the draft rights of rookie Domantas Sabonis. The Thunder are hoping the team improves enough to keep Durant and compete for a title.
News OK reports Durant said the following about the trade:
“It’s a good move. I like Oladipo. He’s a good buddy, a friend of mine, and I’m definitely going to miss playing with Serge. He contributed so much to our organization and to the city, and he’s a pioneer for what he’s done for us and it’s always going to be remembered in OKC what he’s done for the community and his hard work on the court, so we wish him the best.”
A team making a move that drastic with Durant on the free agent market is risky but apparently he’s fine with it.
