76ers Finally Trade Jahlil Okafor

76ers Finally Trade Jahlil Okafor

The news was initially reported by Zach Lowe of ESPN.

Philadelphia sent Okafor, along with Nik Stauskas and a second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker, according to multiple reports.

The trade comes in after Okafor requested to be bought out from the 76ers but the team denied that request.

In 18 games this season with the Nets he is averaging 10.1 points, 6.6, points, and 2.1 assists in 21.9 minutes per game in a mostly reserve role.

Okafor had 2700+ minutes to prove he can be at least a productive National Basketball Association player, never mind the third pick in the 2015 draft.

Okafor is averaging 14.6 points per game for his career, so he does bring offense as an old-school back-to-the basket big man along with a little rebounding (5.9 per game). It will be interesting to see how he will fit with this Nets team. The center played in just two games this season, seeing a total of 25 minutes on the floor, and made it clear he wanted out of town on numerous occasions. Guards T.J. McConnell, Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot, and Jerryd Bayless were the main options 76ers' head coach Brett Brown chose to go with. He averaged 8.5 points per game in 73 games in 2015-16 and 9.5 points per game in 80 games last season. After waiting for both to get healthy, Philly now sits in the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference and could make the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-2012 season.
