Before the Sixers signed free agent Amir Johnson yesterday, they renewed talks with the Celtics about trading Jahlil Okafor.
During an ESPN TV appearance, Adrian Wojnarowski said:
There had actually been talks—sources tell me—that there had been talks between Philadelphia and Boston on a sign-and-trade, that would have sent Jahlil Okafor to the Celtics, and they would have done a sign-and-trade for Amir Johnson, but that never materialized.
Boston has had talks with Okafor for really almost a year, several months certainly back to the last trade deadline. But that didn’t materialize, they just did the straight one-year deal with Amir Johnson.
