The Philadelphia 76ers have been gauging the trade value of Jahlil Okafor ahead of the deadline.

The 76ers selected Okafor with the third overall pick last June.

Okafor said less than 24 hours ahead of the deadline that he hadn't really thought about the event.

It was previously reported that the 76ers would likely wait until they can assess the health of Joel Embiid before making a decision on the future of either Okafor or Nerlens Noel.

The Miami Heat were a team that has expressed interest in Okafor this season.
