Nets land Jahlil Okafor in stunning trade with 76ers

Nets land Jahlil Okafor in stunning trade with 76ers

In addition to the swapped players and the Knicks draft pick, the Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create a roster spot for Okafor as they settle their lineups for the season. According to multiple reports, the Philadelphia 76ers have finally agreed to a trade that will send the former No. 3 overall pick to the Brooklyn Nets.

Booker was a client of agent Andy Miller, who had his agent certification revoked by the NBPA this week because of several legal issues, including his potential involvement with the NCAA pay to play scandal.

"It's been real Brooklyn", Booker tweeted Thursday afternoon. They have enough young talent on board as is, so a reclamation project such as this was never a sensible priority. "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 Clippers have also received a DPE for Patrick Beverly, so there are several teams in play here at the end of the week.

The 30-year-old has averaged a career-high 10.1 points per game so far this season, adding 6.6 rebounds and 2.1 assists in 18 games for the Nets.
