2016-17

Of the three players the Thunder acquired in a draft-day deal that sent Serge Ibaka to the Magic, Oladipo was the main prize. The former No. 2 overall pick is a magnificent athlete and strong defender who offers the ability to play point guard and both wing spots, but his subpar-to-average shooting from distance made him a somewhat expendable piece on a Magic squad that was already lacking in three-point threats. Moreover, his development seemed to plateau in his third season in the league, as his averages of 16.0 points, 4.8 rebounds, 3.9 assists, 2.1 turnovers, 1.6 steals, 1.4 three-pointers and 0.8 blocks in 33.0 minutes per game werenít markedly different from what he posted during his sophomore campaign. Nonetheless, the Thunder recognized the upside that still exists in Oladipo, and he should emerge as the top sidekick to Russell Westbrook, who takes over as the teamís alpha dog now that Kevin Durant is with the Warriors. With Westbrook running the offense and Cameron Payne in line for top backup duties at point guard, Oladipo figures to spend the majority of his time on the wing, where further growth as a three-point shooter will be a prerequisite if the Thunder hope to remain among the top teams in the Western Conference. The career-best 34.8 percent success rate Oladipo provided from three-point land a season ago offers some encouragement that heís still improving in that area, and having Westbrook on hand to command most of the attention of opposing defenses should open up more extra looks for the swingman than he saw in Orlando. If heís indeed able to raise his efficiency, a career-best season could be in the offing. That would certainly qualify as convenient timing for Oladipo, who will become a restricted free agent at the end of the season and is surely eying a max deal similar to what Bradley Beal received from the Wizards this past summer.

2015-16

Oladipo's sophomore season started on the wrong foot when he missed all of training camp and preseason with a sprained right MCL, and just before returning at the start of the regular season, he endured a facial fracture that cost him the first nine games. Over the course of 72 games, he provided 17.9 points, 4.2 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.7 steals, and 1.2 three-pointers in 36 minutes per contest. The 23-year-old guard made incremental strides in his shooting, raising his field-goal mark to 44 percent and his three-point accuracy to 34 percent as he spent more time at shooting guard with rookie Elfrid Payton on the squad. Using the first half of the season to develop chemistry with his new teammates and to acclimate to the system, Oladipo exploded after All-Star break, becoming one of seven players to average at least 20.0 points, 4.0 rebounds, and 4.0 assists per game in that span. He's still susceptible to careless turnovers, errant passes, and forcing wild shots at the rim, manifesting into inefficient percentages. The Magic hired head coach Scott Skiles in the offseason, and Oladipo will vie to retain his role as the team's starting shooting guard.

2014-15

Victor Oladipo is fresh off a second place Rookie of the Year campaign. Last season, Oladipo averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, 1.6 steals, and 0.5 blocks in 31 minutes per game in 80 contests. He shot 42 percent from the field on 11.7 attempts per game and 78 percent from the line on 4.0 attempts per game. Oladipo led all rookies in total minutes (2,486) and turnovers (256), which was the seventh-worst mark for turnovers among all players last season. The 22-year-old guard assuaged his turnover woes by finishing ninth in total steals (129) and held opponents to a crackerjack 46-percent shooting at the rim. With the departure of Jameer Nelson (Orlando's all-time assist leader) and Arron Afflalo, Oladipo's usage rate and minutes are expected to spike, likely exacerbating his ball-handling follies. The addition of rookie Elfrid Payton alleviates primary playmaking duties, while the Channing Frye signing gives the Magic a legitimate floor spacer, in all probability increasing Oladipo's efficiency around the basket. As last season progressed, Oladipo demonstrated improved range, converting 38 percent of his three-pointers and 44 percent of his shots from the floor after the All-Star break. Oladipo heads into his sophomore season a reported 20 pounds lighter, ready to accept the role as team leader.

2013-14

Drafted by the Magic with the second overall pick in this June's draft, the supremely athletic Oladipo projects to be a lockdown perimeter defender immediately, but it's unclear how long it might take for his offense to catch up. Oladipo filled up the stat sheet as a junior at Indiana last season and during summer league play with the Magic, but his mid-range shot still remains a bit unreliable at this stage of his development. To work around this issue, the Magic plan to give Oladipo minutes at both guard spots this season, with the hope that his physical gifts will allow him to thrive as a facilitator while still maximizing his strengths as a slasher. Because he had limited ball-handling responsibilities in college, Oladipo could experience some growing pains while manning the point, as evidenced by the 4.8 turnovers he averaged during summer league. However, with veteran guards Jameer Nelson and Arron Afflalo unlikely to be a part of the next great Magic teams, the Magic figure to exercise plenty of patience with Oladipo in his rookie season, allowing him to learn the ropes as he goes.
