The longest tenured Thunder player and fan-favorite is no longer in Oklahoma City.

Center , Adrian Wojnarowski and Shams Charania reported late Friday night.

Rebuilds and salary sheddings have its costs to a team and a fan base. The Big Kiwi is the latest sacrifice in general manager Sam Presti’s efforts to transform the roster with an eye purely on the future.

Over Adams’ seven years with the Thunder, he averaged 9.8 points, 7.6 rebounds, 1.2 assists, 1.0 blocks and 0.9 steals per game. His 58.87 field goal percentage is the fourth-best career mark of any player in league history.

People on Twitter responded after the trade was reported, with many Thunder fans and reporters alike thanking Adams for his time in Oklahoma City.

Thank you Steven Adams for your time in Oklahoma City

One of the funniest and nicest players in the entire league

One of the few constants through constantly changing OKC rosters

Someone who I would’ve loved to see be an OKC lifer

Thank you Kiwi

— 𝑪𝒐𝒏𝒆 🌩 (@Three_Cone)

Steven Adams was my favorite Thunder player to draw. Thanks for the memories, mate.

How Thunder fans are feeling this morning waking up to the news Steven Adams has been traded…..

— The Sports Animal (@sportsanimal)

Trading Steven Adams makes a lot of sense for the on court future of the Thunder.

But the Big Kiwi is arguably the second most beloved Thunder player of all time behind Russell Westbrook, so off the court, this one will hurt, mate.

There was even a pretty apt comparison to a particularly upsetting Thanos scene in the Avengers.

While some think Adams will fit well on the Pelicans, some are more excited about his fit in New Orleans.

Steven Adams eats more than any human being alive. I cannot imagine a better culinary fit for an NBA player.

— Fred Katz (@FredKatz)

Others are expressing incredulity of what Adams and Zion Williamson will look like on the floor together, punishing opponents for running into their screens.

Zion and Steven Adams is literally the handshake meme lmao

— Trenton Jocz (@TrentonJocz)

Anyone who has to deal with zion and steven adams screens for 48 minutes.

The Thunder will have plenty of opportunities to get their next great with all the draft picks they have accumulated, but while they struggle on the court, it will be difficult for fans to have said goodbye to all their favorite players.

Adams hits harder than most players who have been moved.

During his introductory press conference for newly installed head coach Mark Daigneault, Sam Presti made light of the fact Chris Paul is one of the busiest men involved with the NBA, even busier than many of the league’s team executives.

Butler was drafted by the Miami Heat in 2002 and was involved in the trade that saw the Lakers send Shaquille O’Neal…
