Sixers ‘Gauging Interest’ in Jahlil Okafor
The Sixers are “gauging interest” in rookie center Jahlil Okafor before Thursday’s trade deadline, according to Tom Moore of Calkins Media. Okafor has had a solid year on the offensive end of the floor, averaging 17.1 points and 7.4 rebounds in 47 games.
One team to keep an eye on per Moore - the Miami Heat.
With the NBA trade deadline today at 3 p.m. I discussed the many possibilities that exist for the Sixers - trading Noel, trading Okafor, trading the Lakers pick, trading the Heat pick, trading the Thunder pick are just some of the possibilities the Sixers have today.
"I think a number of teams are calling for Noel and Okafor, but I don't think the Sixers will break them up," Said Alex Kennedy from the BasketballInsiders.com
