NBA Rumors: 76ers Trade Jahlil Okafor to Nets In Multi-Player Deal

BREAKING: 76ers Trade Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas To Nets

Okafor is being traded to the Brooklyn Nets, reports ESPN's Zach Lowe.

The Philadelphia 76ers have finally moved Jahlil Okafor.

Okafor had fallen out of the Sixers rotation with Joel Embiid, Amir Johnson, and Richaun Holmes all slotted ahead of him in the depth chart at Center.

In Booker, Philadelphia will add a veteran forward averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in his eighth National Basketball Association season.

With the Sixers set with Dario Saric as their starting power forward, Booker arrival gives them a valuable bench player who can produce and help lead a struggling second unit.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. I have already detailed on this website why he is not a good National Basketball Association player, but here's a question for people who are somehow still PrOkafors: If he is so good, why is it that Richaun Holmes, who was drafted in the second round in Okafor's draft, and Dario Saric, who isn't even a center, are ahead of him on the center depth chart?

Stauskas, who joined the Sixers in 2015 in a trade from Sacramento, is averaging less than 1 point per game.

Booker, a seven-year veteran out of Clemson, is averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in 18 games.

Now that he is a Net, Okafor may get some playing time as Tyler Zeller, Timothy Mozgov, and rookie Jarrett Allen share the center position.
