76ers sending Jahlil Okafor to Nets

Nets land Jahlil Okafor in stunning trade with 76ers

Philadelphia has excised Okafor from its rotation after declining their team option on him for next season, and Okafor's representatives have asked for a trade or a buyout.

The Philadelphia 76ers have traded center Jahlil Okafor, Nik Stauskas and a second-round draft pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker, according to Zach Lowe of ESPN.

The 30-year-old Booker will bring a strong rebounding and defensive presence to the 76ers.

Now, the 76ers can focus back on winning basketball games with the elephant out of the room. In his 25 minutes of action, he is averaging 5.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.

Google pulled the service because Amazon doesn't sell its products, the company told CNN Tech. Amazon announced the app's availability today (Dec. 6), and laid out all the salient points.

The 76ers waited way too long to deal Okafor, and as a result, they received absolutely nothing of value in return for a player they used a high lottery pick on.

With the Nets struggling to hit their three-point shots, ranking 24th in three-point percentage with 35.4 percent, Stauskas can earn his minutes by doing what he does best in knocking down threes. So, what exactly are the Sixers giving up?

Okafor has appeared in two games for the Sixers this season. While some fans will hate to see Okafor go, his departure opens the door for many possibilities for the team moving forward with their rebuild. The Sixers have officially placed themselves in the race for a playoff berth by flushing their past down the toilet.
