NBA trade rumors: 76ers still shopping center Jahlil Okafor

Jahlil Okafor is apparently no longer part of “The Process.” The 76ers are reportedly searching for teams willing to make a trade for the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

According to ESPN, the Sixers are working in conjunction with Okafor’s representatives to find a suitable landing spot for the 21-year-old center.

Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said Okafor was no longer part of the team’s rotation and his spot with the second unit had been taken over by Amir Johnson.

“I’m playing Amir (Johnson) ahead of him and that’s just the situation,” Brown told reporters Friday. “[Okafor] doesn’t let people know. He comes in and his head’s good and his spirit’s good. And he and I talk all the time, but that is the bottom line. He is not in the rotation.”

Okafor said in an interview with SB Nation prior to the season he was questioning whether he was, “part of this team.”

“I’m unsure if I’m still on the team,” Okafor said. “Am I really a part of this process? Am I really a part of this culture? That’s why the guys have been out there on social media, but I’ve just kind of been in the dark.”
