Philadelphia 76ers center Jahlil Okafor (8) drives to the basket against New Orleans Pelicans guard Jrue Holiday (11) during the National Basketball Association game between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New Orleans Pelicans at the Smoothie King Center in New Orleans, LA.

An NBA trade is about to go down.

. Over multiple seasons, the Sixers drafted three prominent college big men: Okafor, Kentucky's Nerlens Noel and Kansas' Joel Embiid. They had to make a trade that summer while the value was still high.

Stauskas, who joined the Sixers in 2015 in a trade from Sacramento, is averaging less than 1 point per game. Okafor has played only 12 minutes and Stauskas has played in only 6 games.

"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business".

Okafor has been a disappointment for the 76ers since the team drafted him third overall in 2015, and never quite fit into what they wanted to do on the floor.

Now that he is a Net, Okafor may get some playing time as Tyler Zeller, Timothy Mozgov, and rookie Jarrett Allen share the center position. Dario Saric is a starting POWER FORWARD and is the fourth string center. Okafor has also been unhappy with his role throughout the past two years and requested a buyout last month.

While this move may not sit well with some Sixers fans, they must take a moment and familiarize themselves with Booker.
