It has been a great journey for Ibaka’s NBA career with the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was drafted to Seattle SuperSonics in 2008 with the 24th pick. The team’s name just changed to Oklahoma City Thunder, six days after the draft.
Ibaka was a great fit for the Thunder, because of the threat he imposes to the paint. He was a consistent shot blocker after averaging 1 block in 16 minutes of action in his early years in the league.
He was a Starter in the Thunder’s rotation, had career-highs in OKC with 21 points and 22 rebounds last February 2015.
But all things must come to an end.
The trade was finalized on June 23, 2016.
Ibaka was traded to Orlando Magic, after the Thunder management decided to let him go in exchange for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and 11th pick of the 2016 NBA Draft Domantas Sabonis.
|Victor Oladipo against Serge Ibaka|
The Oklahoma City Thunder have decided to let go of their defensive big man Serge Ibaka. The Thunder send Ibaka to the Orlando Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and recently drafted Domantas Sabonis, the 11th overall pick in the 2016 NBA draft.
The Magic got a serviceable defensive big man in Serge Ibaka who can also knock down three point shots. Ibaka, a three-time NBA all defensive first team, averaged 12.6 points, 6.8 rebounds and 1.9 blocks, his lowest output since his third year in the league. With the resurgence of Steven Adams and Enes Kanter, Ibaka has fallen out of favor in the thunder’s rotation.
Meanwhile, the Thunder got a combo guard who can provide scoring aside from Kevin Durant (assuming that he is coming back as a Thunder next season) and Rusell Westbrook in Victor Oladipo and a proven stretch four in Ersan Ilyasova. Oladipo, the second overall pick of the 2013 NBA draft averaged 16 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.9 assists in his third season in the NBA while Ilyasova will provide spacing and scoring off the bench for the Thunder.
The Thunder also got a diamond in Domantas Sabonis, the 11th overall pick of the 2016 NBA draft. Sabonis is the son of the legendary player Arvydas Sabonis. The 6’11 power forward has averaged double double of 17.6 points and 11.8 rebounds in his last year in Gonzaga as a sophomore. He has also a good shooting stroke, can knock down threes and perimeter jumpers. He is expected to have a hard time and fight for big man rotation with Ersan Ilyasova, Enes Kanter, Steven Adams and Mitch Mcgary.
The Dunk contest these year was too good these two guys had to do 5 completed dunks to win the competition. Will Barton from Denver Nuggets got a great entrance but the nerves got into him and never really got his groove. Andre Drummond made both of his dunks but that wasn’t impressive enough. So it was between Gordon and Lavine, Honestly both are great dunkers and all but I would have given it to Gordon. I know that any given day Lavine can pull off a dunk from the free throw and just add something to the mix. Gordon’s dunk on the other hand was just on another level.
Just check out the highlight of this dunk ITS FREAKING SICK!!!!!!
Charlotte Hornets newly acquired guard Jeremy Lin had 17 points, Jeremy Lamb added 16 and leading the team to a 106-100 victory over the Orlando Magic in their exhibition opener.
While Orlando Magic reserve big man Andrew Nicholson made the most of his 21 minutes, scoring 23 points and grabbing eight rebounds.
Hornets forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist left in the second quarter with a right shoulder injury after going to the floor following a foul in the second quarter.
Former Orlando Magic coach Jacque Vaughn is returning to the San Antonio Spurs in a player-personnel role. Vaughn will replace Trajan Langdon, who recently accepted a front-office job with the Cleveland Cavaliers.
Vaughn was fired as the Magic’s head coach in February, finishing 58-158 in two-plus seasons of undertaking the rebuilding project.
Vaughn has a longstanding relationship with the Spurs’ organization, where he served as an assistant coach (2010-12) and played the final three seasons (2006-09) of his 12-year NBA career.
That’s right its a hot commodity right now. Bigs that are good enough to make teams better. Today, I will be sharing some of my insights about NBA Free agents mainly Bigs!
