Heat Trading Victor Oladipo to Thunder

The Heat are trading guard Victor Oladipo to the Thunder, per Shams Charania of The Athletic.Victor Oladipo

Along with Oladipo, Miami is sending draft equity to Oklahoma City, as well as net a $9.45 million trade exception by flipping his salary. That’s in addition to the $4.7 million trade exception it acquired in February.

Oladipo, 31, suffered a torn patellar tendon in his left knee during the Heat’s first-round playoff matchup — adding to an already injury-plagued career in Miami. He averaged 10.7 points, 3.5 assists and 3.0 rebounds in 46 regular-season games.

This of course marks his second stint with the Thunder. He has also spent time with the Rockets and Pacers. But there are questions as to whether how much he is physically still able to have an impact.

Meanwhile, the Thunder will still have $7.2 million in available cap money, as well as $7.8 million room midlevel exception, noted Bobby Marks of ESPN.
