Report: 76ers Gauging Interest in Okafor

on

[A] source said general manager Sam Hinkie is “gauging interest in [Jahlil] Okafor” around the league heading into Thursday’s 3 p.m. deadline.

Coach Brett Brown is trying to figure out a way to make it work with natural centers Nerlens Noel and Okafor, but it’s been difficult with the natural centers who each want to be close to the basket.

A report in the Miami Herald, citing “an official who has spoken to the Heat,” claimed Miami “expressed interest” in Okafor earlier this season.
