Instant reaction: Sixers trade Okafor to the Nets

According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, Okafor will now get a shot to play.

After averaging 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game as a rookie while starting 48 of the 53 games he played in, he was demoted to a bench role behind Joel Embiid last season. Shams Charania of The Vertical confirmed the deal, and included that the Sixers will get veteran big man Trevor Booker back in return.

In addition to the swapped players and the Knicks draft pick, the Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create a roster spot for Okafor as they settle their lineups for the season. He has only appeared in two games this season, averaging 5.0 points and 4.5 rebounds in 12.5 minutes per game.

However, Apple Pay cash works only with iOS 11 .2 and the users who do not have the latest OS can upgrade to it as it comes free. They'll still receive the money and they'll get a shiny new Apple Pay Cash card when they accept the terms and conditions.

Okafor, a former Duke star, should finally see the playing time he's been begging for since he was drafted. The Sixers free up cap space for this upcoming offseason by moving Stauskas asusming that they do not retain Booker's services beyond this season. The center played in just two games this season, seeing a total of 25 minutes on the floor, and made it clear he wanted out of town on numerous occasions. He averaged 8.5 points per game in 73 games in 2015-16 and 9.5 points per game in 80 games last season.

Already loaded with forwards, Trevor Booker will have to find a way into the 76ers rotation. Dario Saric is now starting at power forward and Embiid at center, with Amir Johnson backing them up.
