The Thunder and Magic just pulled off the biggest trade of the NBA Draft

Did Sixers make right selection with Ben Simmons at No. 1?

Serge Ibaka has been traded to the Orlando Magic in a blockbuster deal that ships Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova, and 11th overall pick Domantas Sabonis to the Oklahoma City Thunder.

Minutes after Sabonis had been selected by the Magic, a report from The Vertical said that Sabonis — along with Oladipo and Ilysavoa — had been traded to OKC, all for Ibaka. It certainly seems like a lot to give up for Ibaka, who is a perennial defensive player of the year candidate but struggled in the Western Conference Finals against the Warriors this season.

It's a clear sign that the Thunder are reshuffling their roster toward the more modern NBA, picking up two extremely young players who will contribute immediately. Sabonis is an extremely active big-man who should fit in nicely with Steven Adams, while Oladipo will provide necessary backcourt help for Russell Westbrook.
