How Much Can Ibaka Change the East?

How Much Can Ibaka Change the East?

Open Floor: SI's NBA Show - February 14, 2017 - 54:53

On today's show, Andrew Sharp and Ben Golliver react to an Ibaka Raptors trade that broke just before they began recording. Coupled with news of Kevin Love's knee injury, the East feels more wide open than ever. But how wide open is it, really? Should Cleveland feel threatened? Will Toronto bring back this nucleus next year? Does the Ibaka deal put pressure on the Celtics and Wizards? How do the Warriors factor into this equation? Plus: They debate the specifics of Denver and Portland's Nurkic/Plumlee deal, and recap an underwhelming Warriors/Thunder rematch in OKC.
