Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (8) drives to the basket against New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (11) during the National Basketball Association game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA.
Okafor, the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, isn't part of the Sixers future and his reps asked for either a trade or a buyout.
Okafor failed to crack the rotation in the Sixers' last 13 games and has only logged 25 minutes all season. The team has seen young players, including Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, blossom in the past two seasons.
The Boston Celtics were nearly always mentioned in rumored deals for Okafor (then again, which rumors weren't they mentioned in the last few years?), and in a way, Thursday's trade will likely make Boston fans smile just a little bit.
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). The two-year deal he signed with Brooklyn in 2016 for just over $18 million is up at the end of the 2017-18 campaign. That fits perfectly with Stauskas' game. Brooklyn sent veteran forward Trevor Booker to Philadelphia in return. Nik Stauskas has not fared much better this season averaging 0.7 points in 7.5 minutes a night across six games.
