NBA Trade Headlines: Klay Thompson To Orlando Magic; Serge Ibaka Reunite With Former Teammate Kevin Durant

Golden State Warriors guard Klay Thompson seems to be on the spot light in the trading rumors as of late. After being linked to be traded away to the Milwaukee Bucks and Boston Celtics another rumor emerges linking him to the Orlando Magic as his possible team destination. 

Thompson was battered by many critics regarding his continuous slump this season. He only averages 17.0 points, 3.3 rebounds and 2.4 assists in a dismal 20.8 percent three-point shooting after seven games a far cry from his last season averages of 22.1 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.1 assists with 42.5 percent in the three-point line according to HNGN.

The Warriors may have the best roster of players currently as it has two of the top three NBA stars, Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry. Unfortunately, having a stellar roster of players come with a price. Golden State Warriors are doing well without Kevin Durant before, even if they didn't win the championship against the Cleveland Cavaliers last NBA season. To give way for KD, they decided to let go Andrew Bogut and Harrison Barnes. 

Sportsrageous also reported that if ever the trade pushes thru it could be a reunion for Kevin Durant and Serge Ibaka who've been teammates in Oklahoma City Thunder. Ibaka has the struggling so far struggling with the Magic's system.

If the trade happens, fans may have to see Thompson going to Magic for Ibaka. This will then lead to a reunion with Durant who played together for Oklahoma City Thunder 7 seasons.

Meanwhile according to Jobs & Hire, Thompson hasn't been himself this year especially in their loss against the Los Angeles Lakers. Either way, if indeed the trade does happen it might benefit both teams and improve both rosters as well.
