Serge Ibaka Finally Gives Orlando Some Direction

This article was originally published on Pick and Popovich on June 26, 2016. The Orlando Magic overpaid for potentially one year of Serge Ibaka. Let’s get that part out of the way. Without a commitment on a contract extension, giving up a lottery pick, a useful rotation player and a high-end starter for a non-All Star is usually never a good decision. But for the first time since...
