Nets acquire 76ers' Okafor, Stauskas

Philadelphia 76ers forward Jahlil Okafor

Okafor, a 6-11 center taken as the third selection in 2015 out of Duke by the Sixers, Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick were sent to the Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker, according to the reports.

Players of a similar ilk, like Greg Monroe and Al Jefferson, have recently made an impact coming off the bench to give second units some scoring punch.

Brooklyn has been trying to stockpile young talent due to the lack of draft picks they've had over the last few years, acquiring their starting backcourt of D'Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe via trades this offseason.

It is hard for even the best NBA Draft prospects to receive significant playing time in the top overseas leagues. While Lonzo Ball was a college basketball star, his father has assured that the other two sons will not be.

As for whether the Sixers should be anxious about this trade coming back to haunt them down the road when considering the Nets are in the same division, well let's just say Okafor hasn't given the team any reason for panic.

Philadelphia has excised Okafor from its rotation after declining their team option on him for next season, and Okafor's representatives have asked for a trade or a buyout.

"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business". In his 25 minutes of action, he is averaging 5.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game. In his previous two seasons with the Sixers, he totaled 105 games and 81 starts.
