    Default Jahlil Okafor from 3rd overall pick in 2015 draft to...

    ...no team giving up any significant draft assets for him.

    Where did it all go wrong for somebody with such promise?

    Apparently all they want back is a second round pick for Okafor and no team is obliging. Why wouldn't you spare a second rounder and the roll the dice on this guy?

    If teams are unwilling to give up a second rounder, it makes you wonder what's going on behind the scenes with him. To Heim's point, I've heard rumors about Okafor partying too much, not working hard enough, etc

    Reports say Okafor is headed to the Nets in exchange for Trevor Booker.

    Coach K questioned Okafor's work ethic before the 2015 NBA Draft.

    The Sixers did not listen.

    It's a good move for Brooklyn, they're basically giving up nothing, and in return might be able to get more out of Okafor than the Sixers were able to, they did the same with D'Angelo Russell, low risk, high reward moves by a team desperate to acquire talent. Looking back at it, the trade that sent KG and PP to Brooklyn from Boston for all those draft picks has set their franchise back a decade, at least.

    Never good when your coach calls you out like that.

    Yeah, word is probably out on the guy on how he’s a lazy piece of shit. That’s the only thing I can think of.

    But who knows, maybe he will turn the corner some day.
