76ers trading Jahlil Okafor to the Nets

Share

The Brooklyn Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania. He's averaging just 12.5 minutes per game this season, and it was clear long ago that he wouldn't be a part of the 76ers' long-term plans.

This marks the end of the 76ers' attempts to enter contract buyout discussions with the big man. Okafor has played in just two games this season.

The Sixers are nearing a trade that would send Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick to the Nets, in exchange for Trevor Booker. Brooklyn has started Timofey Mozgov and Tyler Zeller at times this season at center, but Okafor could develop with the team's young core, which includes D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert. 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 was the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft and made the first-team All-NBA Rookie team, but that's disappeared into the distance as he has played only two games this season.
