  • Jahlil Okafor rips Sixers' coaching staff

    The #FreeJah movement is now in full effect in Brooklyn, where Jahlil Okafor has played in just one of six games since being traded by the Sixers. "A lot of the guys are in midseason form, where I feel like I'm at the start of the season because I haven't really played," Okafor told the New York Post.

  • Trade between Sixers, Nets could work out well for both sides

    It was only a matter of when, not if, the Sixers parted ways with Jahlil Okafor. The Sixers traded Okafor, Nik Stauskas and a second-round pick to the Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker. The move marks the end of Okafor's tenure with the Sixers that began in 2015 and never really had a clear fit.

  • Report: 76ers’ asking price for Jahlil Okafor has dropped from two first-rounders to a second-rounder

    The 76ers have been shopping Jahlil Okafor for a year and a half. Colangelo’s asking price has steadily dropped for Okafor, from two first-round picks to a first and a solid player to where it stands now, a second-round pick, league sources said. Colangelo is holding out the possibility that Okafor’s $5 million salary could be packaged as part of a bigger deal before the Feb. 9 trade deadline, even if he can’t find a singular move involving Okafor, league sources said.

  • Isaiah Thomas: 76ers doing Jahlil Okafor wrong

    When the Celtics traded Isaiah Thomas to the Cavaliers after he played hurt and on a relatively low salary for Boston, many players felt he was done wrong. Thomas is paying that support forward with Jahlil Okafor, who’s in the final year of his contract, out of the 76ers’ rotation and desperately wants them to trade him or buy him out. The 76ers missed their optimal window to trade Okafor.
