Jahlil Okafor Says He Wants 76ers Contract Buyout or Trade

Philadelphia 76ers Exercise 2018-19 Contract Options For Four Players

According to reports, the 76ers will not pick up Okafor's fourth-year option, which would have earned him $6.3 million in the 2018-19 season.

Okafor, 21, averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game his rookie season in 2015-16 and was named to the league's All-Rookie team.

Okafor is finally healthy, but has only played in one game this season. But Okafor doesn't care how he leaves; he just wants to play somewhere else, even if that means getting traded before the National Basketball Association trade deadline in February. 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. "I want to be on the court, that's pretty much it". I'm just anxious about my career.

"I'm unsure if I'm still on the team", he told Jordan Brenner of SB Nation earlier in October.

Selena Gomez, The Weeknd Split: Sources Reveal Why The Singer Dumped Girlfriend
Selena Gomez and The Weeknd's relationship may be over, but that doesn't mean the split was a mutual agreement. In spite of the fact that nothing is authentic yet, Bieber is clearly resolved to win back her heart.

Last week, head coach Brett Brown told reporters that Okafor is not in the teams' rotation as Amir Johnson has been and will be getting the back-up center minutes. "I want the team to do great things, but at the same time I want to play". Even before the season began, Okafor was questioning whether the Sixers considered him a part of the team.

The Bulls have been linked to Okafor in the past as the big man reportedly preferred to be traded to Chicago if anywhere. So the fact that I know that at the end of the season I would at least have an opportunity to play elsewhere, that's great. But Okafor said the team has not engaged with him on that possibility. "Me and my agent started getting the hint they weren't going to offer more so it was whether you were going to make a move on it, or not, and you waited too long and now I'm here today". However, they would only do it if Robert Covington was included in the trade.

Okafor will now be on the trading block as he has been the past two years, and team president Bryan Colangelo will look to get something out of him before he is forced to either buy Okafor out, or lose him in free agency.
