Serge Ibaka will be traded to the Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and Domantas Sabonis according to the The Vertical.
We wouldn’t have traded Oladipo for Ibaka straight up so this is crazy talk. Sam Presti has officially made up for not amnestying Kendrick Perkins so he could keep James Harden. Oladipo will have a hard time producing the way he did in Orlando with the Thunder setup the way they are right now, and Sabonis is going to hope to be a 20 mpg rotational big in his first season. Ilyasova will probably show him the ropes as currently constituted. Ibaka’s health is the biggest factor for his fantasy value as his explosion was lacking this season and we’re not fully sure that his knee isn’t hurt.
