76ers To Again Explore Trade Market For Jahlil Okafor

Sep 20, 2017 9:18 PM

Brett Brown admitted the Philadelphia 76ers will explore the trade market for Jahlil Okafor.

While the 76ers traded away Nerlens Noel last season, Okafor remains behind Joel Embiid and possibly Richaun Holmes on their depth chart at center.

The 76ers have found the trade market for Okafor to be soft during their previous attempts to deal him.

Okafor was the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

76ers Confident Extension Agreement Will Be Reached With Joel Embiid

Sep 20, 2017 7:17 PM

Joel Embiid has yet to be cleared by the Philadelphia 76ers for five-on-five drills. The 76ers will take a cautious approach as he returns from his meniscus surgery.

"If you walk in the gym, it looks like he could play 5-on-5 basketball," Bryan Colangelo said. "But we're going to take our cues from the people who know best."

According to Colangelo, those people favor a "hyper-conservative progression" for Embiid.

Colangelo also said he was optimistic the 76ers and Embiid could agree to a contract extension before the deadline.

Jahlil Okafor Has Lost 20 Pounds On 'Mostly Vegan' Diet

Aug 25, 2017 11:46 AM

Jahlil Okafor has lost approximately 20 pounds since the start of training camp in 2016 by following a "mostly vegan" diet.

Okafor has cut out dairy but occasionally eats fish.

“I’ve cut out dairy, so that’s cheese, chocolate, stuff like that,” Okafor said. “But every now and then I still might eat some fish.”

Okafor is hoping he can stay healthy this season.

“I feel lighter, I feel great,” he said. “I’ve been taking my body seriously, my health seriously, what I eat very seriously. So I think it’s going to pay off.”

Okafor's future with the Philadelphia 76ers is uncertain due to the presence of Joel Embiid and Richaun Holmes.

“I’m not sure [of my role],” Okafor said. “We haven’t had all the guys together yet. ... When we all start training camp, we’ll all figure that out."

Nets Nearly Hired Bryan Colangelo Over Sean Marks

During the weekend, Nets' chairman Dmitry Razumov had a long talk with R.C. Buford about Sean Marks. Buford told the Nets that they may not let Marks interview unless he would get to run the team his way.

Bob Myers and several other executives praised Marks to Razumov during the weekend.

Marks was hired less than a week later and given a mandate to rebuild the franchise patiently. 

Colangelo soon thereafter was hired by the Philadelphia 76ers.
