Jahlil Okafor Trade Rumors: Celtics Have Expressed Interest in 76ers C

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. "But that's pretty much where we stand right now".

The Bulls have been linked to Okafor in the past as the big man reportedly preferred to be traded to Chicago if anywhere. 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.

The 76ers had trade discussions centered around Okafor with the Pelicans, Bulls, Nuggets and Portland Trail Blazers, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer's Keith Pompey. So when the Sixers didn't exercise the option, he was ready to move on. In February, Philadelphia was so close to a deal, they sent Okafor home ostensibly to avoid an injury that would have nullified the trade. "I was playing so I didn't really have any complaints". Through seven games, the Duke product has seen the court just once. He repeatedly told the media how happy he was to be a Sixer even though he was frustrated inside.

Okafor also believes that the team waited too long to try and move him in a trade.

McElwain later admitted that the threats he was referring to happened "in the past" and said he was wrong to bring them up. A familiar South Florida face will head the Florida football program - at least until the end of the season.

Okafor joins Nerlens Noel and Michael Carter-Williams as recent first-rounders who didn't make it into the Sixers' long-term rebuilding plans. But at some point, I have to defend myself, and this is my career.

"I'm not sure if (Colangelo) cares about that. I think about that often and I think that's something that could benefit me". 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.

"But at some point, as people, on a personal level, you would hope, let's get Jah out of here", Okafor said. With Embiid's rise to prominence, Okafor has since been shuffled out of the lineup entirely - and he now just wants a chance to play somewhere else.
