RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017-18

Subscribe now to see our 2017-18 outlook.

2016-17

The Magic made one of the splashiest moves during the 2016 NBA Draft, and it didnít pertain to any player they selected. Instead, it was their acquisition of Ibaka that drew attention, with the team surrendering the Victor Oladipo, Ersan Ilyasova and No. 11 overall pick Domantas Sabonis to the Thunder in order to acquire him. With Ibaka set to become a free agent next summer, heíll now receive the opportunity to showcase himself to potential suitors in a featured offensive role for the first time in his career, after ranking a distant third in the pecking order for touches behind Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook throughout his career. Itís a welcome development for Ibaka, who saw his per-game averages in points (12.6), rebounds (6.8) and blocks (1.9) decline last season to their lowest levels since 2016-17. While heís less certain to see a dramatic upgrade in the latter two categories with the move to Orlando, Ibaka should have ample opportunity to enhance his scoring without any teammate on the level of Durant and Westbrook around to dominate the possessions. The 6-foot-10 Ibaka will also give the Magic frontcourt a lift on the defensive end, with he, Bismack Biyombo and Aaron Gordon providing a fearsome trio for opponents to battle with at the rim. After two years in a row of declining fantasy value, it looks as though Ibaka is finally moving back up cheat sheets.

2015-16

Ibaka averaged 14.3 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.4 blocks, 0.9 assists, and 0.5 steals in 33 minutes per game through 64 games played last season. He missed the last month of the season after undergoing minor knee surgery to alleviate soreness. Ibaka has been hitting the occasional three-point shot for the last three seasons, but with Kevin Durant out for most of the season with a broken right foot, Ibaka fully committed to shooting three-pointers as an integral part of his game last season, canning a career-high 1.2 three-pointers on 3.2 attempts per game (38 percent). At 25 years old, it appears Ibaka has settled into producing stats that are great for fantasy. It's not often that a player can block shots and hit three-pointers, but Ibaka does it and does at a high level. As he continued to extend his range over the last several seasons, Ibaka's field goal percentage dropped from a peak of 57 percent two seasons ago to a valley of 48 percent last season. New coach Billy Donovan might utilize Ibaka in different ways, but it's hard to imagine the shot-blocking marksman would be asked to change his game much. Even though Durant is returning to the fold this season and will dominate the ball of offense in tandem with Russell Westbrook, that should only help Ibaka get more-open shots and potentially improve his field goal percentage. In addition to his good 48-percent shooting from the field last season, Ibaka also recorded a career-high 84 percent shooting at the free-throw line, though it was only on an anemic 1.7 free-throw attempts per game, limiting his impact there.

2014-15

Ibaka, entering his sixth year in the league, set career highs in minutes (33 per game), points (15.1), and rebounds (8.8) last season. He also averaged 2.7 blocks per contest while shooting 54 percent from the floor and 78 percent from the line, which was another career best. The calf injury that hampered Ibaka in the 2013-14 playoffs has proven to be tough to recover from completely, so owners will want to monitor his health as we approach training camp. If he's at 100 percent, Ibaka will provide the fantasy goods as usual, as the 24-year-old's offensive game continues to improve each season, and his rebounding and shot-blocking ability are up there with the best in the NBA. As an ever-growing part of the Thunder's offense, Ibaka hoisted a career-high 12.1 field-goal attempts per game in 2013-14, up from 9.7 in 2012-13. He's also a terrific rim protector on the defensive end of the floor. The power forward is locked into a significant role with Oklahoma City, meaning his playing time should only increase if anything.

2013-14

Ibaka had a spectacular season in his 2012-13 breakout campaign. The young forward averaged 13.2 points (57 percent from the field), 7.7 rebounds and 3.0 blocks while playing in 80 games in the 2012-13 season. While his blocks average fell from his previous season in which he blocked 3.7 shots per game, Ibaka's improvement in scoring, rebounding and percentages more than made up for it. Ibaka's lack of rebounds for the traditional power forward spot may be the only thing stopping him from becoming an elite fantasy contributor. His whopping 57 percent field goal percentage, topped with a 75 percent free throw rate (solid for a big man), in addition to solid scoring and a high block rate make him an invaluable asset in all formats. His minutes have slowly but steadily increased over the duration of his four-year career thus far, and seeing 30-plus minutes per game this coming season would not be a stretch for Ibaka, who is likely to continue to develop this season. He will head into the 2013-14 season at 24 years of age, with the brighter years of his career still ahead of him.

2012-13

Ibakaís game continued to develop in 2011-12 when the third-year forward averaged 9.1 points, 7.5 rebounds and a league-best 3.7 blocks per game. For the third straight season, Ibaka shot over 50 percent from the field, though his free-throw percentage took a hit back to 66 percent. Heís developed a pretty good jump shot, but is best when getting out in transition. The Thunder appreciated his work enough to sign him to a four-year contract extension this offseason. It says something that the franchise locked him up long-term, leaving little salary room to keep James Harden, who could command big dollars next summer when he becomes a restricted free agent. If they canít keep Harden, or they eventually amnesty Kendrick Perkins (next season), a larger role for Ibaka will come. For now, the Thunder will settle for minor improvements--some low-post development and more accurate free-throw shooting are good places to start. For the blocks alone, Ibaka is worth a roster spot on fantasy teams.

2011-12

Ibaka cemented himself as a worthy fantasy play in the early going last season with averages of 9.4 points, 6.9 rebounds and 2.1 blocks prior to the All-Star break, but it wasnít until Kendrick Perkins came to Oklahoma City that Ibaka truly blossomed. With Perkins in tow, Ibaka was able to slide over to his natural position of power forward. The move paid dividends, as Ibaka averaged 10.8 points, 8.8 rebounds and 3.0 blocks after the break. His low-post offensive attack remains raw, but Ibaka has shown the ability to hit a 10-15-foot jumper. His field-goal percentage (54.3) remained strong for the second consecutive season, and he showed great strides by improving his free-throw shooting from 63.0 to 75.0 percent. At just 22, Ibaka is nowhere near his prime, and he still hasnít even seen the type of workload most starters receive. Heís already an extremely valuable fantasy piece thanks to his elite shot blocking ability, but thereís plenty more to like here. Donít be surprised if Ibaka takes a huge leap in value this season.

2010-11

The Thunder might have hit a home run when they took Ibaka with the 24th pick of the 2008 draft, as he really emerged over the second half of his rookie season last year (he even blocked seven shots in a playoff game versus the Lakers). His game is still raw, especially on the offensive end, but there's a chance he starts at center for the Thunder as soon as this season. All he has to do is beat out Nenad Kristic, which shouldn't be too difficult. Last season, his per-36 minutes stats looked like this: 12.5 points, 10.8 rebounds and 2.6 blocks, so if he gets more playing time and a starting job, watch out.

2009-10

Ibaka was a first-round pick in 2008, but spent last year playing professionally in Spain, averaging 7.1 points and 4.5 rebounds. He is still too raw to make much of an impact with the Thunder this year. Summer League reviews were mixed for the C/PF.
