Sixers nearing deal to send Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas to Nets

BREAKING: 76ers Trade Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas To Nets

Jahlil Okafor's days of suffering on the pine in Philadelphia have finally come to an end.

An NBA trade is about to go down.


According to multiple reports, the team traded the former first-round pick along with backup shooting guard Nik Stauskas and a second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets for Trevor Booker. When Bryan Colangelo became the GM in 2016, he claimed that he wouldn't make a bad deal.

Senate votes to confirm Kirstjen Nielsen as the new DHS secretary
But Nielsen told the Senate's homeland security panel that "there is no need for a wall from sea to shining sea". Ten Democrats joined in the vote to confirm Nielsen on December 5, with no Republicans voting against.

The improving Sixers (13-10) had declined their team option for next season on Okafor. Not only that, the center logjam would've caused serious problems, and well, it did. 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 has played only 12 minutes and Stauskas has played in only 6 games.

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

Okafor figures to see significant playing time for the Nets, whether it be as a starter or as a sixth or seventh man off the bench. Dario Saric is a starting POWER FORWARD and is the fourth string center. "I've done everything they've asked of me and I would just like to get an opportunity to play with a trade or a buyout". More importantly, the Sixers can now move on with both parties getting what they wanted.
