The Magic reportedly believed Ibaka wouldn't re-sign with the team this summer when he's set to become an unrestricted free agent and were therefore forced to move him in order to not be left empty handed. Ibaka is averaging a career-high tying 15.1 points per game this season to go with 6.8 rebounds.
