  • Luke Ridnour finds it 'funny' he's been traded four times in a week

    Published: Wed, Jul 1, 2015

    In an interview with a USA TODAY Sports, former Thunder player Luke Ridnour said that he finds the fact that he was traded four times in seven days, including a five-day stop in Oklahoma City, "funny." Ridnour was traded from Orlando to Memphis to Charlotte to Oklahoma City and finally to Toronto. The Thunder acquired Ridnour, as well as a conditional 2016 second-round pick, from Charlotte on June 25 for Jeremy Lamb . Oklahoma City then sent his contract to Toronto for the draft rights to Tomislav Zubcic, the 56th overall pick in 2012. "I've got a lot of texts from friends and family worried about us," Ridnour told USA TODAY Sports. "It really hasn't affected us at all. It's been pretty funny. ... Honestly, not much has changed. "I knew what was going on and never really got invested in any team that traded for me." Ridnour, 34, recognizes the possibility that he could be on the move again within the week, or even cut before his contract becomes fully guaranteed on July 10. He sees retirement as an option, but would like to play another season. "I'll look at the situation and see if it's something that's worth my family and me moving to and see if I'm going to keep playing or not," he said. "That's where my mind has been."

  • Serge Ibaka left off of Spanish National Team roster for European Championships

    Published: Wed, Jul 1, 2015

    Last week, it was Enes Kanter getting " snubbed " by his national team. This week, it's Serge Ibaka. The Thunder veteran was left off of Spain's 17-man preliminary roster, announced Tuesday, for the 2015 European Basketball Championships, with head coach Sergio Scariolo picking Chicago Bulls forward Nikola Mirotic instead. From eurobasket2015.org: "It is not a question of one being better than the other, everybody knows Niko [Mirotic] and Serge have different skill-sets and attributes as players," Spain's coach said. "Niko deserves to have his chance on the senior team after defending this jersey at youth level. "Serge has already had this experience with great success and this is an opportunity to also show to Niko how it feels to be alongside this group of players and be a part of this team. "We did not call up Ibaka to training camp because we had to make a decision respectful to both players, who deserve to know what they will do with their summer." Ibaka has occupied the place of the naturalized player on the Spanish team at the 2011 European Championship, the 2012 London Olympics and the 2014 FIBA World Cup.
