Okafor was drafted with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft.
The improving Sixers (13-10) had declined their team option for next season on Okafor. Brooklyn has started Timofey Mozgov and Tyler Zeller at times this season in the middle, but Okafor could develop with the team's young core, which includes D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert. He couldn't top his rookie year to his sophomore-year as he averaged 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds per game, and one block per game because his minutes dipped from 30 a game to 22. "I've done everything they've asked of me, and I would just like to get an opportunity to play with a trade or a buyout". The two-year deal he signed with Brooklyn in 2016 for just over $18 million is up at the end of the 2017-18 campaign. He averaged 8.5 points per game in 73 games in 2015-16 and 9.5 points per game in 80 games last season. Nik Stauskas has not fared much better this season averaging 0.7 points in 7.5 minutes a night across six games.
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.
