Thunder Trade Serge Ibaka To Magic

Oklahoma City has traded power forward Serge Ibaka to Orlando, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical. The Thunder received Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and the rights to Domantas Sabonis, the 11th overall pick, in return (Twitter link). Both teams have formally confirmed the deal.

Serge Ibaka verticalIbaka had spent his entire seven-year career with OKC after being drafted 24th in 2008. The 26-year-old has one season left on his contract at $12.25MM. He appeared in 78 games for Oklahoma City this season, averaging 12.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks. The Thunder reportedly have been gauging the trade market for Ibaka in advance of the draft.

Oladipo, 24, will be eligible for a contract extension next month for the first time in his NBA career. He is scheduled to make about $6.55MM next season in the final year of his rookie deal. The combo guard averaged 16.0 points and 4.8 rebounds for the Magic in 2015/16 while shooting .438 from the field.

Ilyasova, 29, has an $8.4MM contract for next season, but only $400K of that is guaranteed. He split this season between the Pistons and Magic, averaging 10.4 points and 5.4 rebounds in 74 games.

Earlier in the evening, the Raptors offered their No. 9 pick to the Thunder for Ibaka, tweets Marc Stein of, but Oklahoma City turned down the deal. Toronto is searching for a replacement for 35-year-old Luis Scola, who started 76 games this season. Scola will be a free agent after earning $3MM during 2015/16. Toronto wound up keeping the ninth pick and taking center Jakob Poetl out of Utah.

    Holy $#&@!!!!! Ibaka fits great in orlando, but can’t believe they traded Oladipo. I don’t know how to feel about this for okc though. They get Oladipo and Sabonis, but I don’t like the idea of trading Ibaka. Have to see what they do later

    It feels like a lot for the magic to give up

    Do the Thunder want Durant to leave? Lol.

    • I don’t think they want him to leave, what team would? But I think they realize they could lose KD either this offseason or possibly next and Westbrook next, so they’re preparing themselves if that does happen

      • Connorsoxfan

        I was joking. Just making a point that trading Ibaka isn’t a great way to convince him to stay.

        • bsteady powers

          OKC won this trade

          • Z.....

            obviously. okc turned 1 year of ibaka unto oladipo and sabonis. I still cant believe orlando traded oladipo

  4. Dionis Beato

    Wow Durant would be dumb to leave OKC now, Oladipo is the perfect 2 guard, can play defense, hit perimeter jumpers and make plays something they lacked beyond Westbrook.

  5. Thronson5

    Wow! So many trades! I love it. Love all the action the last few days. Wonder if this changes Durants mind at all or if he could careless. I bet he could careless but you still gotta wonder.

    I love this trade, don’t get me wrong Ibaka is great, he has been regressing tho over the past few season, but he may be the old Ibaka in orlando

    • angrypoptart99

      If durant resigns I feel like this is a better big 3, and the rights to a pretty good looking rookie

    • Z.....

      Okc has used him poorly with Scott Brooks and Scott Brooks 2.0

  7. Matt BG

    Seems like a deal that will end up blowing up for Orlando. What are they left with if Ibaka walks when his contract is up?

  8. aarongill

    Ibaka was a free agent next year. Good move Thunder. Now Kantar won’t be coming off the bench. Dipo give the thunder 5 more years of him Atleast and a decent prospect in Sabonis.

  9. victor

    don’t they already have aaron Gordon at the 4 spot ? seems like Orlando could of got more for dipo or maybe dipo and ersan without the pick would of been fair I think .. BUT isn’t orlandos GM from OKC so maybe he was throwing a bone to his former team but it seems like every time a GM does that it bites them in the ass.. to me it always felt like when Houston needed to pull a trade moreys first call was to his former assistant hinkie in phily…

    • They need a rim protector to pair with Gordon/Vucevic. Ibaka is big, strong, and athletic enough to play both the 4/5 so he can pair with both Gordon and Vucevic well.

      • Z.....

        He’ll finally play a lot more 5 for orlando
