FORGET BUYOUT! SIXERS COULD SEND JAH TO BULLS, NETS OR SUNS!

By Harry Allison

The Sixers have been dangling Jahlil Okafor to trading partners for what seems like going on two years, and now that the team has achieved respectability with a 5-4 record that effort has amped up.

Okafor wanted the Sixers to buy him out, which makes no sense for the team, which drafted home No. 3 overall in 2015 and wants to recoup some value for the 6-11 Jah.

ESPN has some thoughts, which we agree with:

Trading for Okafor makes far more sense for a rebuilding team, with the Chicago Bulls, Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns the three most reasonable options.

Still, his long-term upside is limited, because if Okafor plays well the rest of the season, he’ll have to be re-signed as an unrestricted free agent.
