Default Nets trade Trevor Booker to Philly for Jahlil Okafor + more

The Brooklyn Nets trade PF Trevor Booker to the Philadelphia 76ers for C Jahlil Okafor, SG Nik Stauskas, and 2019 New York Knicks 2nd round pick.

The Nets will send forward Trevor Booker to the 76ers for Okafor, guard Nik Stauskas and a 2019 second-round pick from the New York Knicks, league sources told Yahoo Sports. The Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create roster space for the trade, league sources said.

Okafor, 21, gets a fresh start to a once-promising career, which included averages of 17.5 points, seven rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 53 games as a rookie. Philadelphia declined his fourth-year rookie option before the start of the season, meaning Okafor will be a free agent at seasonís end. The 6-foot-11 Okafor has been out of the 76ersí rotation for parts of the past two seasons, playing in only two games this year.

For the Nets, the acquisition of Okafor gives the franchise a young prospect with upside at center. Brooklyn has started Timofey Mozgov and Tyler Zeller at times this season in the middle, but Okafor could develop with the teamís young core, which includes DíAngelo Russell and Caris LeVert.

Love the trade. Booker was probably leaving after this season and the Nets got another young player with potential. Nik Stauskas is a good fit with his perimeter shooting. and the Nets get another pick. awesome deal for Booker. Booker played with a lot of energy and heart though and will be missed.
