Could The 76ers Still Trade Okafor Or Noel?
The "Crazy Train" of NBA Free Agency has been the source of a lot of rumors, generating conversation from fans to media to players; meanwhile the Sixers have reached agreements to sign three guards this offseason: Gerald Henderson, Sergio Rodriguez, and Jerryd Bayless. But what has been overlooked for the Sixers is that Jahlil Okafor and Nerlens Noel are still on the roster after the team entertained their options for two months to trade them. So are the Sixers still looking to make a deal or are they content with another season having both Okafor and Noel on the roster?
Sixers Beat Writer Tom Moore of Calkins Media joined The Sports Bash on Tuesday and discussed whether the Sixers have any more transactions on tap for this offseason:
"I dont think they are necessarily done, I mean it's possible nothing else happens but I'm still not sold that one of the big young guys won't get traded, either Okafor or Noel...if it's somebody they think can be a core guy going forward I can see them making a move like that....I wouldn't be shocked if a guy like Stauskas is included in a trade if they trade a big guy, maybe Stauskas along with, making a 2 for 1 trade, I could see something like that happening."
