Okafor, 21, averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game as a rookie in 2015-16.
Okafor had fallen out of the team's rotation this season, appearing in just one game against Toronto in which he played 22 minutes and finished with 10 points and nine rebounds. The Sixers had looked to trade Okafor several times throughout his career. Bryan didn't think that would be a good idea because he said that he'd be giving me away to a team for free. "So I want to get on the court and play and produce". With Embiid's rise to prominence, Okafor has since been shuffled out of the lineup entirely - and he now just wants a chance to play somewhere else.
Okaforconfirmed that he asked team president Bryan Colangelo for a buyout, criticizing the team's decision to wait on trading him because his value is now low. The Celtics might want Okafor only after a buyout - i.e., if they don't have to surrender any assets to Philadelphia. Anthony Bennett, who was selected first overall in 2013 and Hasheem Thabeet, selected second overall in 2009, are the other first-round picks inside the top three that did not have their fourth-year options exercised.
"I didn't expect November 1st to hit, that I would be here", Okafor said. I know a buyout is one of the options where I get an opportunity to play elsewhere and to get on the court. In fact, they've reportedly been exploring trades since last season.
Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor said Wednesday that he would like either to be bought out or traded, according to Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia. While Okafor has always offered an advanced offensive game in the post, his lack of defense and rim protection made him a tough fit in Brown's defensive-minded scheme.
