  • Philadelphia 76ers Trade Jahlil Okafor to Brooklyn Nets

The Jahlil Okafor-Philadelphia 76ers saga has finally come to an end. The Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create roster space for the trade, league sources said.

Once again, the Nets have picked up a talented player while giving up little.

Philadelphia had been trying to trade Okafor since his rookie season but had been unable to find a taker.

The Sixers drafted Okafor third overall in the 2015 NBA Draft and he averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds over 53 games while earning first-team All-NBA Rookie team honors during his first season. Okafor, meanwhile, has been cast aside, a casualty of a process that has moved on without him.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN last month.

"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business".

Stauskas has appeared in six games this season. The center played in just two games this season, seeing a total of 25 minutes on the floor, and made it clear he wanted out of town on numerous occasions.

Trevor Booker is in his eighth National Basketball Association season, and has been an effective player for Brooklyn this season averaging a career-highs in points (10.1), and assists (2.1) while shooting 51.3% from the field and grabbing 6.6 rebounds a game across 21.9 minutes a night.
