Sixer Jahlil Okafor Makes Clear He Wants Out of Philly
02 November, 2017, 01:02 | Author: Lamar Ellis
Okafor was very open with media on Wednesday, saying that he was content with the team not picking up his fourth-year option, making him a free agent after the season.
As the 76ers have rallied around and found some semblance of promise in their duo of Embiid and Ben Simmons, Okafor has played in just one game this season: 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in 22 minutes in a 34-point loss to Toronto.
"I only talked about it with Bryan and he just said that he felt that if he bought me out, another team would be getting me for free", Okafor said. Now I'm just in a position to where, how can I get on the court? "But at some point, I have to defend myself, and this is my career", Okafor said. The team looks great and I'm not a part fo that.
With the Sixers now 3-4 to begin the new season, it will be interesting to see what happens with Okafor. The Celtics might want Okafor only after a buyout - i.e., if they don't have to surrender any assets to Philadelphia. "I just want something to happen rather quickly". 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. While Okafor has always offered an advanced offensive game in the post, his lack of defense and rim protection made him a tough fit in Brown's defensive-minded scheme. "But that's where we stand today because you waited so long to trade me".
Last season, he found himself in a logjam at center, with the emergence of Embiid as a burgeoning superstar and both Holmes and Nerlens Noel on the roster (though Noel would eventually be traded).
But Ainge has been unwilling to give up anything of real value (Marcus Smart or Terry Rozier), and this time sounds no different, as Keith Pompey of Philly.com is reporting the C's won't give up much for Okafor and are hoping for an eventual buyout.
