Sixers Trade Jahlil Okafor To Brooklyn Nets

PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Jahlil Okafor has finally been freed from Philadelphia.

The 76ers have announced they shipped Okafor, Nik Stauskus and a 2019 second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets for power forward Trevor Booker.

Okafor, the Sixers’ third-overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, has only played two games this season after falling out of the team’s rotation.

Okafor asked for a trade after the Sixers announced they would not be picking up his fourth-year option.

During his two-plus seasons in Philly, Okafor averaged 14.6 points and 5.9 rebounds per game.
