They can easily play

RW
Waiters
Oladipo
Durant
KD

When they need points.

Also, they have trade pieces

The question here is why did the Magic do this trade. What's it in for them?

Don't understand these EC teams.

Vucevic cant defend the paint which is a problem but he is really good (and cheap) so they probably want to keep him. Also, log-jam at the 2 with Fournier, Hezonja and Oladipo. They will probably have to max out Ibaka next summer, which they will and i think they can do a lot of stuff between him, Gordon and Vucevic up front while giving Hezonja some extra minutes at the 2. Depending on what happens with Fournier, I could see them go all-in on 1-2 other players as well such as Barnes/Parsons and/or a point guard such as Mike Conley.

With Oladipo taking #5, Kyle Singler switches to #15

OKC was forced to make some move to try and hold KD and then Westbrook, just sitting pat wasn't going to get it . Serge has declined in the past couple seasons. EC is easier for him too.
