Hard to trade Ibaka but I'm in need of a SF. With the drafting of Udoh, signing of Martin and all the other PF's I had, someone needed to go, and Ibaka was the only on with some trade value. This gives me a decent back-up or starter at the SF spot.
My team is in rebuilding mode and I wanted to get rid of Marvin's long contract, in return I get the very young Ibaka who is just turning 21 and who I really like. He had a great season for the Thunder and will hopefully get a rating boost.
