In a deal out of right field, the Oklahoma City Thunder swung for the fences, dealing big man Serge Ibaka to the Orlando Magic in exchange for Victor Oladipo

The move comes with some questions for the Thunder, who may be prepping for the post-Kevin Durant era.

For Oladipo, the chance to play next to Russell Westbrook means all the energy, all the dunks, all the highlights. Considering the revolving door the Thunder have had beside Durant and Westbrook on the perimeter, Oladipo will slot into the starting line-up next to either of them.

We'll have more coverage on the trade and the aftermath in the coming days.
