NBA Reporter: Jahlil Okafor Will Be Traded By Thursday Deadline76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Wednesday, February 22nd, 2017
TNT’s NBA reporter David Aldridge says the Philadelphia 76ers are going to trade center Jahlil Okafor in the next 30 hours. The NBA trade deadline is on Thursday at 3pm EST. Everyone NBA fans who has a computer or television, knows that the Sixers are trying to trade Okafor.
The Philly front office thought they had a deal for Okafor a couple of weeks ago, but it fell through for some reason that hasn’t been disclosed as of yet. The team was sure he was going to be dealt, that they sat him out a couple of games.
Although, Aldridge doesn’t know where Okafor will wind up, he says there’s no way the young center will remain a Sixers past the upcoming deadline. Indiana was the number one landing spot for Jahlil mentioned by Aldridge.
He also says that Sacramento, who recently traded away All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins to New Orleans, is one of the teams in the running as well the Lakers. It doesn’t take a genius to see that with Cousins gone, the Kings would have some minutes for a young center like Okafor.
Stay tuned. I’ll let you know as soon as possible if and when he’s traded. Twitter – @garrycobb
