76ers near Okafor deal with Nets

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.

Philadelphia 76ers' Jahlil Okafor prior to a game against the Atlanta Hawks on November 1, 2017. After an impressive rookie season, his minutes declined in the 2016-17 season and he has only played in two games this season as the third option at center behind Joel Embiid and Amir Johnson. The Sixers get former Clemson forward Trevor Booker.

Okafor had 2700+ minutes to prove he can be at least a productive National Basketball Association player, never mind the third pick in the 2015 draft.

In 2017-18, Kilpatrick has accounted for 4.9 points, 2.2 rebounds and 0.9 assists a game in 183 minutes and 16 games in this his fourth National Basketball Association season. He now joins D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in that draft, on a Nets roster with some intriguing young talent.

Once again, the Nets have picked up a talented player while giving up little. Noel was visably upset at the center logjam that caused him to only play 8 minutes in one game.

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.

I hope Stauskus and Okafor revive their careers in Brooklyn, they will certainly get more opportunities to do so.
