Philadelphia 76ers: Trevor Booker will provide a toughness that's been lacking

The No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 draft has played in just two games this season, for a total of 25 minutes, as trade rumors have been off and on for awhile.

The Philadelphia 76ers trade Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a 2019 second-round to the Brooklyn Nets for Trevor Booker. Last season, Booker averaged 10 points and 8 rebounds but did so in only 24 minutes of action.

The 76ers waited way too long to deal Okafor, and as a result, they received absolutely nothing of value in return for a player they used a high lottery pick on. Fans and local media alike were screaming their collective heads off telling the organization that it couldn't head into the 2016-17 season with Jahlil Okafor, Joel Embiid, and Nerlens Noel on the same roster.

"This is my third year in the National Basketball Association, and I know it's a business", Okafor said.

This season is more a passionate fight for her than a political, manipulative kind of fight". When talking about her schedule over the next year, Turner said, "Yeah, I'm really excited".

The Sixers tried in every way to accommodate for Okafor, the coaching staff played Nerlens Noel out of position at power forward during the 2015-16 season because Okafor couldn't play any other position, and stunk on defense.

"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business".

When looking at all of the drama behind the center expressing his frustration by still being on the team without receiving playing time, a fresh start for Okafor was best for both parties.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN last month.
