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. His comments don't come as much of a surprise, as Okafor doesn't appear to have a future with the Sixers. On Tuesday, the team declined to pick up his fourth-year option, per ESPN.com, which will make him an unrestricted free agent after the season ends. Last week, head coach Brett Brown confirmed Okafor wasn't in the team's rotation, as he's been relegated to third-string center behind Joel Embiid and Amir Johnson. He'll be bumped back even further once Richaun Holmes—who was the presumed backup to Embiid coming into the season—returns from his fractured wrist Friday.
