    Good question: Will he take it and keep it if it's offered or will he take it then back out of it like he did with the Orlando Magic?

    Apparently (and by apparently I mean, according to one of ESPN's mid-day shows) Billy Donovan and Sam Presti (Thunder GM and dude in the organization who is pulling all the strings) have built a fairly strong bond over the years.

    Don't know how it'd work because most of the Thunder players seem to be pretty loyal to Scott Brooks and Ibaka has already spoken out, but he's definitely seeming to be a name that's in play.

    Good NBA job to land if they can keep all the stars.
