Jahlil Okafor would welcome a trade or buyout from 76ers

Sixers decline Jahlil Okafor's fourth-year option could still trade him before end of season

The 76ers have rejected Okafor's buyout request after they were unable to trade him ahead of the deadline on rookie scale options.

In Neubeck's article about the Sixers declining to pick-up Okafor's option, a team source indicates that both sides are still working to find a trade that would be beneficial.

"Honestly, I didn't want them to pick up my option", Okafor said Wednesday, according to NBC Sports Philadelphia's Jessica Camerato. "This is my life, this is my career, and I'm not getting an opportunity here, which is fine", Okafor continued. "I had a talk with (team president) Bryan (Colangelo) about that (Tuesday), just because I want to play". "I just want something to happen rather quickly".

Okafor entered the National Basketball Association as the No. 3 pick in the 2015 draft, but recently he has been questioning his role with the Sixers after playing in only one game this season, against the Raptors.

Jahlil Okafor's tenure with the 76ers will not continue past this season.

"Bryan 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 said, per Pompey. 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.

The Bulls have been linked to Okafor in the past as the big man reportedly preferred to be traded to Chicago if anywhere. So when the Sixers didn't exercise the option, he was ready to move on. Through seven games, the Duke product has seen the court just once.

The Sixers have been shopping Okafor for the better part of the last two seasons.

"I'm playing Amir (Johnson) ahead of him and that's just the situation", Brown said October 27, per NBC Sports Philadelphia's Matt Bowker. However, his minutes and role has continued to decrease and this season he has played in just one game - at Toronto - where Joel Embiid did not play. "I'm 21, I'm healthy, and I'm trying to get on the court".
