  • Sixers decline Jahlil Okafor's fourth-year option could still trade him before end of season

A day after the Philadelphia 76ers declined his fifth-year option, Jahlil Okafor wants out from the team.

The Sixers on Tuesday declined Okafor's fourth-year option, which will make him a free agent after the season.

Okafor averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds per game in his rookie year before suffering a knee injury.

Relations appeared to improve under the leadership of current Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi. They also attacked an office of a rival political party and an opposition TV station.

He has played in only one game this season, as he has fallen behind on the depth chart and appears to be an afterthought in a Philadelphia big-man rotation that includes Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Dario Saric, Amir Johnson and the injured Richaun Holmes. Okafor has barely played since the 76ers almost traded him at last year's deadline before the deal came apart, making for an awkward reunion. Now I'm just in a position to where, how can I get on the court?

"I'm unsure if I'm still on the team", he told Jordan Brenner of SB Nation earlier in October.

"I've asked for a buyout", Okafor told reporters after practice on Wednesday. "I just want something to happen rather quickly". However, when Okafor approached 76ers president of basketball operations Bryan Colangelo about the idea of a buyout, Colangelo was reluctant, saying he did not want to give Okafor away for free. So the fact that I know that at the end of the season I would at least have an opportunity to play elsewhere, that's great. "But that's where we stand today, because he waited so long to trade me". However, they would only do it if Robert Covington was included in the trade.

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

Philadelphia Sixers big man Jahlil Okafor reportedly wants out of Philly, and he would like either to be bought out or traded, according to Jessica Camerato of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

Other teams - that don't care about winning this season and will have cap room next summer - are generally better of waiting to sign him then.
