The Oklahoma City Thunder were one win away from making the NBA Finals but decided change was needed by trading away Serge Ibaka. Oklahoma City sent Ibaka to the Orlando Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and new rookie Domantas Sabonis. Ibaka was an important part of the Thunder team for years but is officially moving.
Orlando is looking to change their roster in hopes of making the postseason and Ibaka will help their chances. Oladipo adds a dynamic guard to improve the Thunder backcourt. Steven Adams and Enes Kanter will likely start in the center and power position next season for Oklahoma City. What impact will this have on Kevin Durant’s decision in free agency?
