The Jahlil Okafor-Philadelphia 76ers saga has finally come to an end. Brooklyn shipped out Trevor Booker and obtained a pick in the process, but the exchange leaves Sean Kilpatrick as the odd man out. He gives the Nets' offense an interior presence they've lacked, and should see plenty of usage once he's up to speed - remember, he's played just 25 minutes this regular season.

The Sixers had been trying for some time to trade Okafor, whom they acquired with the third overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft.

According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, the Philadelphia 76ers have agreed with the Brooklyn Nets on a deal that would send the third-year center to NY for Trevor Booker.




"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. Boston has until Friday to use their $8.4 million DPE to acquire a player whom they could trade again at the deadline on February 8, so there is still a possibility of movement around the league.

Okafor publicly requested a trade or buyout on November 1 and the team declined his $6.3 million team option. He now joins D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in that draft, on a Nets roster with some intriguing young talent. He will be a free agent following the 2017-18 season.
