Okafor failed to crack the rotation in the Sixers' last 13 games and has only logged 25 minutes all season.
Zach Lowe was the first to report the news.
Okafor is talented enough to have attracted multiple offers, but the Sixers settled on what they felt was best for the future of the franchise, which in turn brought them yet another draft pick to help build their future. He couldn't top his rookie year to his sophomore-year as he averaged 11.8 points, 4.8 rebounds per game, and one block per game because his minutes dipped from 30 a game to 22.

But his vote probably won't matter: Even without Corker, Republicans appear to have the votes they need to pass the bill anyway. Unlike the House bill, for example, the Senate bill would end the insurance mandate at the core of the Affordable Care Act.
"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. He has played in only six of Philadelphia's 23 games this season.
Trevor Booker is in his eighth National Basketball Association season, and has been an effective player for Brooklyn this season averaging a career-highs in points (10.1), and assists (2.1) while shooting 51.3% from the field and grabbing 6.6 rebounds a game across 21.9 minutes a night. People were talking about Okafor as the second-best prospect in his draft class before he fell into oblivion, so it's worth the gamble for a bad Nets team with no potential National Basketball Association superstars outside of possibly D'Angelo Russell.
Okafor is averaging 14.6 points per game for his career, so he does bring offense as an old-school back-to-the basket big man along with a little rebounding (5.9 per game).
