Oklahoma City Thunder forward Serge Ibaka was at a Thunder youth basketball camp on Friday, helping coach about 40 campers ages 10 through 16 at the Santa Fe Family Life Center.

Ibaka paused to talk with the media briefly, and was asked his reaction to the team hiring Billy Donovan as the new head coach.

Ibaka said "he's a good guy, a very good guy.    He's smart.   I'm going to support him like the organization.    The players are going to support him.

That's what it is.  At the end of the day it's a business.   We have to do whatever it takes to do whatever is best for the team."

Ibaka was clearly not happy when former Thunder coach Scott Brooks was fired in April, tweeting a brief "SMH," which stands for "shaking my head."
