Okafor's option not being picked up by Sixers

Sixers decline Jahlil Okafor's fourth-year option could still trade him before end of season

Jahlil Okafor is no longer a part of"The Process."More

The 21-year-old native of Fort Smith, Arkansas has missed 62 games in his first two seasons, including a two-game suspension by the team in his rookie year due getting involved in a Boston bar fight.

Okafor has only appeared in one game for the Sixers this season, playing 22 minutes in a loss to the Raptors. But Okafor doesn't care how he leaves; he just wants to play somewhere else, even if that means getting traded before the National Basketball Association trade deadline in February. "Because he said he would be giving me away to a team for free". That's why the guys have been out there on social media, but I've just kind of been in the dark.

The team will not pick up the 2018-19 option on the player it drafted third overall in the 2015 draft.

Over the last five days, shares have faced -1.72% losses and now is up 4.36% since hitting its 200-day moving average of $341.49. Following the completion of the sale, the vice president now owns 1,736 shares of the company's stock, valued at $589,354.64.

The Bulls have been linked to Okafor in the past as the big man reportedly preferred to be traded to Chicago if anywhere. "They're going to continue to do great things, but at the same time, I want to play".

Okafor would give the C's another low-post option - an offensive-minded one at that - to go with Al Horford, Aron Baynes and rookie Daniel Theis.

Last week, head coach Brett Brown told reporters that Okafor is not in the teams' rotation as Amir Johnson has been and will be getting the back-up center minutes.

Okafor says that he didn't believe he'd still be with the Sixers when the deadline for his option came up.

Philadelphia Sixers big man Jahlil Okafor reportedly wants out of Philly, and he would like either to be bought out or traded, according to Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia. But Okafor said the team has not engaged with him on that possibility. "But that's where we stand today, because he waited so long to trade me".

Last season, he found himself in a logjam at center, with the emergence of Embiid as a burgeoning superstar and both Holmes and Nerlens Noel on the roster (though Noel would eventually be traded). Okafor is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer and will be free to sign with any team.
