Philadelphia 76ers trade disgruntled Jahlil Okafor to Brooklyn Nets

The Philadelphia 76ers have finally moved Jahlil Okafor. That KG/Pierce trade was seriously one of the worst trades in the history of the National Basketball Association.
His wish was granted on Thursday, as the 76ers have dealt Okafor, guard Nik Stauskas and a second-round pick to the Brooklyn Nets for veteran forward Trevor Booker, according to multiple reports.
For the Sixers, there is no doubt that this trade has lifted a cloud that has been hovering the organization for the past year and a half.
Okafor has appeared in two games for the Sixers this season. They had to make a trade that summer while the value was still high. He's averaging just 12.5 minutes per game this season, and it was clear long ago that he wouldn't be a part of the 76ers' long-term plans. Noel was visably upset at the center logjam that caused him to only play 8 minutes in one game.
"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business".
Okafor, who was drafted third overall in the 2015 draft, has only played only two games this season and it was clear why he wanted out, mainly because his teammate Joel Embiid has been playing really well and is healthy.
At minimum, starting or coming off the bench, Okafor should play a fair amount for the Nets.
