"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN last month. Philly had to surrender what may be a decent second round pick but makes good with Okafor, who they essentially refused to play for most of the past year as they tried to trade him. The former third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft has only played in two games this season, averaging five points and 4.5 rebounds on 44.4 per cent shooting. Brooklyn has started Timofey Mozgov and Tyler Zeller at times this season at center, but Okafor could develop with the team's young core, which includes D'Angelo Russell and Caris LeVert.
