Jahlil Okafor says he wants buyout or trade from 76ers

Jahlil Okafor will be on the market for the Chicago Bulls in 2018

As well, Stein reports that Okafor is convinced workable trades for him have been on the table with the 76ers. "Honestly, I didn't want them to pick up my option". "This is my life".

"Bryan didn't think (a buyout) would be a great idea because he said he would be giving me away to a team for free. I want the team to do great things, but at the same time I want to play". Now, Okafor is putting his National Basketball Association career first and wants to be with a new team.

It will be interesting to see if the Bulls push for a deal to land Okafor before the end of the year or just try to outright sign him in free agency.

But, if the Stevens can get him to commit on the defensive end, it could definitely strengthen Boston's front court.

With Okafor requesting a buyout, President of Basketball Operations Bryan Colangelo has now declined to comment on the team's decision.

By declining Okafor's option, the Sixers will save about $6.3 million in cap space heading into an offseason in 2018 that will include Joel Embiid's extension going into effect. "A buyout's not the only option".

Colangelo declined comment. Stymied on the buyout, the third overall pick in the 2015 draft wants to be traded as soon as possible.

Lio Rush apologizes for tweet about WWE releasing Emma
She was sent to Tampa, Florida to work in the WWE's developmental territory known as Florida Championship Wrestling (FCW). The last time WWE fans saw Summer Rae was part of Team B.A.D. and Blonde at WrestleMania 32 defeating Team Total Divas.

"So I want to get on the court and play after this".

He called out Colangelo for not trading him when Okafor feels he had the chance.

One would have assumed that they would have been eager to pick up his contract just to enhance his trade value.

Okafor had a solid start in his first season in the league, averaging 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game, while being named to the league's All-Rookie team, before a knee injury cut his season short.

"I'm playing Amir ahead of him that's just the situation". I'm not playing here. Now Sixers reporter Keith Pompey of Philly.com says the Celtics would be a likely landing spot for Okafor if he is bought out.

He's played in just one game this season, putting up 10 points, nine rebounds and two blocks in a lopsided loss to the Raptors.
