Orlando coach Scott Skiles has put a lot on the 23-year-old’s plate this season, bringing him off the bench for the majority of the 2015-16 campaign. And lately, Oladipo has been forced into point guard duty with starter Elfrid Payton ineffective and out due to injury.
But Oladipo has taken all of the change in stride.
“I’m blessed with the ability to do a lot of things,” said Oladipo, a strong perimeter defender. “So wherever [Scott] needs me to be, that’s where I’m going to be. I’m gonna go out there, play as hard as I can and do whatever it takes to help my team win.”

Thunder GM Presti: ‘Tremendous Appreciation’ for KD
In the wake of Kevin Durant’s deleted tweets that slammed his former team and coach, Oklahoma City Thunder general manager Sam Presti responded on Friday by taking the high road and praising Durant’s time with the franchise.
“I, and no one from the Thunder, has anything negative to say about Kevin Durant,” Presti said. “I think we’ve been hopefully very open about the fact that we have tremendous appreciation and respect for what he and his teammates and coaches and everybody over his tenure here accomplished, and I really don’t think there’s anything more to say other than that.”
