Philadelphia 76ers' Jahlil Okafor prior to a game against the Atlanta Hawks on November 1, 2017.

The Sixers had been trying for some time to trade Okafor, whom they acquired with the third overall pick in the 2015 National Basketball Association draft. Boston has until Friday to use their $8.4 million DPE to acquire a player whom they could trade again at the deadline on February 8, so there is still a possibility of movement around the league.

The Nets, 9-14 on the season, are now in Mexico City for a couple of games which includes a matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight and a game against the Miami Heat on Saturday.

Philadelphia has excised Okafor from its rotation after declining their team option on him for next season, and Okafor's representatives have asked for a trade or a buyout.

In Brooklyn, Okafor will join a young core that includes D'Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe.

After averaging 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game as a rookie while starting 48 of the 53 games he played in, he was demoted to a bench role behind Joel Embiid last season.
