Okafor has been a disappointment for the 76ers since the team drafted him third overall in 2015, and never quite fit into what they wanted to do on the floor.

Back in 2015, the Philadelphia 76ers were sitting in a tough position during the NBA Draft when Jahlil Okafor was the best player at No. 3, mainly because it was one of those situations in which they couldn't afford to pass on the former Duke star. In addition to Okafor, the Sixers will also send shooting guard Nik Stauskas to BK in exchange for Trevor Booker and a 2019 second round pick via the New York Knicks.

The Brooklyn Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania.

Booker is averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in 18 games played for the Nets, who are 9-14 on the season. "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 76ers declined to exercise the option on Okafor's 2018-19 deal, which means he would hit free agency in July. He now joins D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in that draft, on a Nets roster with some intriguing young talent.

Okafor has received very little playing time in Philly over the last two seasons. In his 25 minutes of action, he is averaging 5.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.0 blocks per game.
