Oklahoma City Thunder rides out MVP trade and pending transaction

The estate of late oilman Aubrey McClendon is seeking to sell its 22% stake in the Oklahoma City Thunder, an NBA franchise valued by Forbes at around $1.5 billion, per Bloomberg.

Why it matters: Because this comes just as the Thunder traded away its most valuable asset, former league MVP Russell Westbrook. Can't imagine that move went over too well at Inner Circle Sports, the boutique investment bank managing the sale.
