Free Jah, right?
He’s free and off to Brooklyn, according to reports:
Philly will send Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a second-round pick to Brooklyn for Trevor Booker, sources say.

Sources: Brooklyn will receive the Knicks‘ 2019 second-round pick in deal, and release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create roster space for Okafor and Nik Stauskas.

Booker makes around 9 million dollars but is on the final year of his contract, so no long-term complications here.
Okafor didn’t have a future in Philadelphia but gets a shot to revive his NBA career in Brooklyn before becoming a free agent at the end of the season. Stauskas was used sparingly this season and had a tough outing in Monday night’s loss to Phoenix.
