Nets trade for Jahlil Okafor, reports say

Philly will send guard Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick via the New York Knicks in exchange for Trevor Booker per The Vertical's Shams Charania. The former third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft has only played in two games this season, averaging five points and 4.5 rebounds on 44.4 per cent shooting.

The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to trade Jahlil Okafor to the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe and Adrian Wojnarowski.

Okafor has played in only two games for the 76ers this season and has seen his minutes dwindle as his career has progressed. "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". Over multiple seasons, the Sixers drafted three prominent college big men: Okafor, Kentucky's Nerlens Noel and Kansas' Joel Embiid.

In Brooklyn, Okafor will get the chance to team up with the player who was selected before him in the 2015 Draft, D'Angelo Russell.

In Booker, Philadelphia will add a veteran forward averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in his eighth National Basketball Association season.

Stauskas has appeared in six games this season.
