Jahlil Okafor can take a deep breath.

The Nets will send forward Trevor Booker to the 76ers for Okafor, guard Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick from the New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo Sports. He has played in only six of Philadelphia's 23 games this season. He should get a fresh start with the Nets and could eat up some of the 21.9 minutes per game Booker leaves behind. The Nets fire off the second-most 3-point attempts per game in the National Basketball Association (33.9) behind only the Rockets (44.0). Stauskas, a former lottery pick himself, has fallen out of head coach Brett Brown's rotation this season after the addition of J.J. Redick, health of Jerryd Bayless and improvement of players like Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. Okafor also wanted out. This trade allows the Sixers to (somewhat) save face following several ugly months of drama. In his fourth season, the shooting guard is averaging 7.3 points in 22 minutes per game for his career. Second overall pick D'Angelo Russell was acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers in the offseason for Brook Lopez, and now the third overall pick in Jahlil Okafor is a Net as well.

The Browns then moved out of the No. 12 spot in the 2017 draft, allowing the Houston Texans to select Deshaun Watson . Recently, the Browns failed to execute a trade with Cincinnati for quarterback AJ McCarron.


Okafor is clearly gifted, though, and there indeed exists a world in which he'll carve out a meaningful National Basketball Association niche over the course of his career.
