Sources: 76ers Determined to Acquire Asset in Potential Okafor Trade



After the Philadelphia 76ers rejected center Jahlil Okafor’s request to enter into contract buyout discussions, general manager Bryan Colangelo continues to work to accommodate Okafor with a trade, league sources told ESPN.

Colangelo has remained determined to find an Okafor trade that will bring the Sixers back an asset, but the Sixers ultimate deal point could be centered on future second-round draft picks, league sources told ESPN.

Okafor, 21, was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NBA draft, but he has been unable to crack a rotation in Philadelphia under coach Brett Brown. The Sixers invested a five-year, $146.5 million maximum contract into starting center Joel Embiid.
