The Oklahoma City Thunder’s efforts to shop Serge Ibaka reportedly worked.

The Thunder traded the power forward to the Orlando Magic for Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and No. 11 pick Domantas Sabonis, league sources told The Vertical’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Ibaka is known for his defense, as he was named to the NBA’s All-Defensive First Team three seasons in a row from 2012 to 2014. He averaged 12.6 points per game and 6.8 rebounds for the Thunder during the 2015-16 season.

The Thunder originally didn’t have a draft pick this year, so this trade allowed them to make a move Thursday night.
