Magic forward alon Gordon praised the move, while Raptors fans also left messages to express their wishes for Ibakas departure.
It was previously reported that the Lakers are also very interested in Ibaka, but after signing Harrell and renewing Popper, they are not competitive due to salary constraints. In addition, the nets are also interested in Ibaka, especially Durant, hoping that Ibaka will join the nets. To this end, he also contacted Ibaka privately to lobby for the latter. But Ibaka finally chose the Clippers.
Ibaka made $23.27 million last season at raptors. He played 55 games last season, averaging 15.4 points and 8.2 rebounds per game in 27 minutes.
