Freeing Jahlil

Okafor to the Nets

Philadelphia Sixers Move Jahlil Okafor to Brooklyn for Draft Pick, Booker

Jahlil Okafor can finally get the playing time he has been craving.

On Thursday, the Philadelphia 76ers found a trade partner for the disgruntled, vastly underused big man and will send him packing to the Brooklyn Nets along with Canadian Nik Stauskas for a Nets’ second round pick and power forward Trevor Booker. In order to make room for both players, the Nets cut ties with guard Sean Kilpatrick.

Along with D’Angelo Russell, the Nets will now have two of the top three picks in the 2015 NBA Draft.

After breaking onto the scene in his rookie season, a year in which Okafor averaged 17.5-points per game while grabbing down seven boards a contest, the Duke Blue Devils alum has fallen out of favour in Philly and has been struggling to see minutes over the past year and a half. This season, Okafor only stepped on the court twice for the Sixers.

This should be a nice and fresh start for the promising, 21-year old centre.
