Nets acquire 76ers' Okafor, Stauskas

The Philadelphia 76ers will be sending a trade package revolving around the former No. 3 overall pick to the Brooklyn Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker, according to an initial report from ESPN's Zach Lowe.

Brooklyn will release Sean Kilpatrick to create a roster spot for Okafor and Stauskas.

The Jahlil Okafor saga has come to an end.

During the same interview, Cassidy gushed over his son, Beau , who he still had a relationship with at that time. However, they had become estranged in recent years, with Katie only reuniting with her dad on his deathbed.

Players of a similar ilk, like Greg Monroe and Al Jefferson, have recently made an impact coming off the bench to give second units some scoring punch.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. However, he has appeared in just two games this season.

A first-team All-NBA Rookie team member following the 2015-16 season, Okafor averaged 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 30 minutes a night in 53 games during his rookie season.

Museum authorities tweeted that "air filtration systems are protecting the galleries from smoke". The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) said it had released funds for relief services.

As for whether the Sixers should be anxious about this trade coming back to haunt them down the road when considering the Nets are in the same division, well let's just say Okafor hasn't given the team any reason for panic.

With the talented young front court duo of Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons, Okafor became the odd man out for the Sixers and was no longer getting much playing time.
