Oklahoma City has traded Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic, league sources told @TheVertical.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 24, 2016
Orlando will send Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and rights to Sabonis to the Thunder, sources said.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@WojVerticalNBA) June 24, 2016
The move comes with a mixture of surprise and finality, as the Thunder have been entertaining offers for Ibaka for a while, but never pulled the trigger until now.
The Raptors tried to trade the No. 9 pick to Oklahoma City today in exchange for Serge Ibaka but the Thunder refused that pitch, sources say— Marc Stein (@ESPNSteinLine) June 24, 2016
The Thunder acquire 3rd year shooting guard Victor Oladipo, 8th year power forward Ersan Ilyasova, and the rights to the Magic's 11th pick in the 2016 NBA draft, Domantas Sabonis out of Gonzaga.
While the ramifications of the trade are still shaking out, the acquisition of Oladipo and the pending restricted free agency of Dion Waiters likely means that OKC will not be matching any contract offers for Waiters this summer, and current starting SG Andre Roberson coming off of his best year as a pro.
The Thunder making this move makes it virtually a guarantee they won't match on an offer sheet for Dion Waiters this summer.— Royce Young (@royceyoung) June 24, 2016
