Victor Oladipo was traded during the month of June during each of the past two years. First, Oladipo was traded by the Orlando Magic to the Oklahoma City Thunder and again by the Thunder to the Indiana Pacers.

Oladipo was informed of the trade by a friend, who had read about it on Twitter.

"Being traded twice in [that timespan], it makes you feel like people don't want you," Oladipo says now. "You start second-guessing yourself. Doubt starts to creep in a bit."

The trade the Pacers made for Paul George was widely criticized as Oladipo had disappointed in his lone season with the Thunder.

"Of course it bothers me," Oladipo said of the criticism of the deal. "But people's opinions, they are what they are. I can't control that. All I can control is how hard I work."
