The Brooklyn Nets are not sure when Jahlil Okafor will play as they work to incorporate him into the team.
“They know my weaknesses and strengths and I’m working with them every day to get better,” Okafor said. “They already told me what they want me to work on and like I said, I’m all in.”
He added, “[I’m] just getting used to the pace. That’s the main thing. Especially with me really not having played at all this year.”
The Philadelphia 76ers worked to trade Okafor after they declined their option on his contract for 18-19 as he fell out of their plans.
“I feel like I got drafted all over again,” Okafor said. “They’re really invested in me. That just makes me feel wanted, it makes me feel a part of this team.”
