It sounds like OKC's new dynamic duo have already been working on their chemistry, and the backcourt combination should be one of the most exciting to watch in the league.

Victor Oladipo is reportedly seeking a max extension from the Thunder.

Why wouldn't he? The No. 2 overall pick of the 2013 NBA draft has made significant improvements to his game each year in the league, and he finished as a top-10 player in standard 9-cat leagues after the All-Star break this past season. However, OKC may be leery to hand out Oladipo the full max as it would impact their salary cap situation during the 2017 offseason, an offseason in which Russell Westbrook will become an unrestricted free agent. The deadline for an extension is Oct. 31.

Victor Oladipo implied that he's prepared to take his game to the next level with the Thunder.

"I feel like you’re going to see a lot more from me; I don’t think I’ve even scratched the surface of how good I really can be," Oladipo said. "I’m getting better every day and I’m looking forward to [showing] it. I can still grow way, way more." Without Kevin Durant in the picture, the opportunity for Oladipo to show out alongside Russell Westbrook is certainly there. We wouldn't be afraid to "reach" for him in upcoming fantasy drafts.

Victor Oladipo said that he's "dreamed" about playing on the stage he'll have with the Thunder.

"I’ve dreamed about that stage, you know?" he said. "Dreamed about the opportunity to be on that type of stage and have that opportunity to compete for a championship, and now I have that opportunity. So I’ve got to take full advantage of it." We can't wait to see what a backcourt of Oladipo and Russell Westbrook is capable of doing to the rest of the NBA.

Victor Oladipo said it's going to be "fun to watch" him and Russell Westbrook share a backcourt.

Yes, yes it will. Oladipo's fantasy value is going to be determined by what Kevin Durant decides to do as an unrestricted free agent, but if KD decides to leave OKC, Oladipo will immediately become the No. 2 option in OKC's offense. However, if Durant elects to remain with the Thunder, Dipo will likely be more of a mid-round kind of player.

Victor Oladipo was traded to the Thunder on Thursday.

Wow. The Thunder got themselves a terrific shooting guard with play-making ability. If the team does keep Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook, Oladipo is going to have a tough time matching his statistical output from last year. He will get big minutes on his new team and would be a mid-round target in standard leagues. This opens up minutes for Mario Hezonja and makes Dion Waiters expendable, as well.

Magic head coach Frank Vogel called Victor Oladipo a special talent.

Vogel hasn't had a chance to coach Oladipo yet, but is familiar with the 24-year-old from his time as the Pacers head coach. "I think Victor Oladipo is a special, special talent," Vogel said. Oladipo averaged 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers in 2015-16 and will be an elite fantasy option in 2016-17 if Vogel can help him take the next step.

Trail Blazers assistant coach David Vanterpool interviewed for Orlando's vacant head coaching position on Wednesday.

Vanterpool has interviewed for head coaching jobs before but he's never made the leap, and Orlando has also discussed their position with Frank Vogel and current assistant Adrian Griffin. GM Rob Hennigan said recently that "stability is very important," seemingly giving Griffin an advantage, but we shouldn't have to wait long for Orlando's final decision.

Victor Oladipo hasn't yet made a decision on whether he'll play for Nigeria in the Olympics.

Oladipo didn't have a bad season with injury at 72 games, so he doesn't likely need any offseason procedures. Going over the season, he had two concussions (three games in April, two games in November), a sprained wrist (two games), a back contusion (one game) and a right knee sprain (two games). He should be a fantasy stud next season.
May 9 - 3:41 PM

Victor Oladipo is set to complete the NBA's concussion protocol on Thursday.

This news doesn't matter much for fantasy owners now that Oladipo's season is over, but it's good news to hear that he's recovered from his concussion. Dipo finished his third NBA season with averages of 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 1.6 steals, 0.8 blocks, and 1.4 three-pointers on 43.8 percent shooting from the field. His post-All Star Break stats were even better and Oladipo will end up being an elite fantasy option if he can take the next step in 2016-17.
Apr 14 - 11:34 AM

Victor Oladipo (concussion) has been ruled out for Wednesday's game against the Hornets.

Oladipo did indicate that he's feeling better, but after suffering his second concussion in a five-month span, the Magic will err on the side of caution with their franchise two-guard. Mario Hezonja should continue to start in his absence, and he's worth a look just about everywhere, while there will be some increased opportunity for Elfrid Payton and Evan Fournier. Owners in re-draft leagues can go ahead and send Dipo to the waiver wire.
Apr 12 - 3:02 PM

Victor Oladipo (concussion) and Aaron Gordon (concussion) will not play against the Bucks on Monday.

Oladipo is very likely to miss Wednesday, as well. With Oladipo out, Evan Fournier should play a ton while Mario Hezonja might get an extended look to help him prepare for his first full offseason as an NBA player. Oladipo's fantasy owners in re-draft leagues should probably drop him.
Apr 11 - 5:21 PM

Victor Oladipo (concussion) has officially been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Heat.

Oladipo was diagnosed with a concussion after Friday's game, and he'll need to clear the league mandated concussion protocol testing before he is allowed to return to the court. Mario Hezonja will draw the start in his place, and he's someone to consider as a punt in DFS with the increased opportunity. With just two more game remaining for Orlando, Dipo may have already played his final game of the 2015-16 season.
Apr 10 - 4:41 PM

Victor Oladipo has been diagnosed with a concussion, according to head coach Scott Skiles.

Oladipo missed two games earlier this season with a concussion, and with just three more games remaining on the schedule for Orlando, there's a good chance this could end Dipo's season. It'll be Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier, Brandon Jennings and Mario Hezonja seeing some increased opportunity in Oladipo's absence, and Hezonja is worth a speculative add in deep leagues with Aaron Gordon also dealing with a concussion of his own.

Victor Oladipo received six stitches above his left eye and is doubtful to return to Friday's game against the Heat.

Oladipo took an elbow to the face via Hassan Whiteside, and it doesn't sound like he's going to make it back to the floor tonight for Orlando. He'll end his evening with 13 points, four boards, one assist, tow blocks, one triples and one turnover in 28 minutes. For now, we'll be considering him questionable for Sunday's rematch with Miami, and if he's out it'll be Elfrid Payton, Evan Fournier and Brandon Jennings seeing some increased opportunity.
