NBA News and Notes

The Olympics are nearly upon us, C.J. McCollum gets paid. The Men's Olympic Basketball tournament begins a week from Saturday, with the U.S. opening against China. It's hard to see much competition, as none of the traditional powers outside the U.S. are at their height right now. Spain, the recent rival, is clearly not what they once were as their golden generation ages. They will also be without Marc Gasol and Serge Ibaka. Serbia, which reached the Final of the 2014 World Cup, will be without Nemanja Bjelica. France might be the next best team, with Rudy Gobert, Tony Parker, Boris Diaw,...

Orlando Magic's post free agency depth chart

The Magic are a completely different team now than they were a month ago. With NBA Free Agency slowing down, teams are beginning to look more and more like they will for the 2016/17 NBA season. After an active draft night that saw the team shock the NBA with their acquisition of Serge Ibaka from the Oklahoma City Thunder, the Orlando Magic continued to be busy during the opening week of free agency. The Magic saw a high turnover on their roster, with eight players going out, and seven new players coming in. The Magic started early, agreeing to terms with D.J. Augustin, Jeff Green and Evan...

NBA Free Agency: Raptors reportedly expressing interest in Drew Gooden

Yes, we've reached this part of the free agency period. Toronto's lack of depth in the front court has been discussed to death since the off-season got rolling. After balking at the Thunder's demanded package to swing a deal for Serge Ibaka, and with most of the free agent pool drained of talent, the Raptors are reportedly setting their sites on something quiet and utterly unspectacular. Per The Undefeated's Marc Spears, the Raptors have expressed interest in a certain old, pseudo-stretch four: former Wizard Drew Gooden. NBA free agent forward-center Drew Gooden has received inquiries...

New Thunder players Oladipo, Elyasova, Sabonis could have immediate impact in OKC

With the Serge Ibaka trade, the Thunder have put almost all of their chips in play to make next season one for the ages. Has the Thunder dust settled yet? Last week's draft day trade saw forward Serge Ibaka shipped to the Orlando Magic for budding guard Victor Oladipo, veteran forward Ersan Ilyasova and rookie forward Domantas Sabonis, and now the attention turns to how the trio of players coming back to Oklahoma City in the deal will fit into the rotation moving forward for the Thunder. Above all else, the trade of Ibaka to the Magic shook up the NBA universe. In the middle of the NBA...

Sounds of Thunder: Serge Ibaka happy about opportunity with Orlando Magic

Air Congo has arrived at Orlando International Airport If there was a Thunder fan that did not love Serge Ibaka they were in a vast minority because he was such a big part of Oklahoma City's success story. Drafted with the 24th pick in 2008, Serge was stashed in Europe for a season before making his Thunder debut a year later and it was obvious from day one that he was an elite athletic specimen and soon won not only the starting power forward position but most fans' hearts as well. However, that is not what this post is about. Serge's Thunder history is well documented and there is no need...
