Jahlil Okafor made it clear: He wants out of Philadelphia. Now. “It could be a buyout, it could be a trade. I just want something to happen rather quickly.” It’s not going to be a buyout, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The Sixers did not pick up the fourth-year option on Okafor, which worsens his already-low trade value because interested teams can just get him as a free agent next summer for nothing. Okafor’s camp has said they think there are fair trade offers on the table, but what a player/agent think is a fair trade and what a general manager thinks is a fair trade are very different things. They come at it from different perspectives, and we don’t know what offers are really out there.
