As the digits fall

Victor Oladipo wore #5 in Orlando, and I was sort of wondering what would happen when he got to Oklahoma City, where Kyle Singler wears #5. If Wikipedia is to be believed — as of Sunday night, when this was written, the club Web site had not been updated — Singler is switching to #25, the number he wore as a Detroit Piston, leaving #5 for Oladipo.

Meanwhile, Ersan İlyasova is assigned #7. Of the draft picks, Domantas Sabonis apparently will be #23 — he was probably hoping for #11, worn by his dad as a Portland Trail Blazer, but Enes Kanter isn’t giving it up — and Daniel Hamilton will wear #55. (Hamilton was #5 at UConn.)
