SIXERS TO OKAFOR: SORRY, NO BUYOUT, WE’LL LOOK FOR A TRADE!

By Harry Allison

So, here’s the bottom line on the Sixers and Jahlil Okafor:

“(Sixers general manager Bryan Colangelo) didn’t think (a buyout) would be a great idea, because he said he would be giving me away to a team for free,” Okafor told Philly.com. “But that’s pretty much where we stand right now. That’s where we stand today because you waited so long to trade me. There’s nothing else to do. I’m not playing here. At the end of this season, I’m an unrestricted free agent. So I want to get on the court and play after this.”

Okafor isn’t interested in wasting his time and simply hopes for the Sixers to move on if they’re not going to let him play.

“I tried to do everything the right way. I tried to be professional; I will continue to be professional. 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 that’s evident at this point,” Okafor said.

“But at some point, as people, on a personal level, you would hope, let’s get Jah out of here. Let him go play somewhere because I’m 21. I’m healthy. I’m trying to get on the right path of my career.”
