Once again, the Nets have picked up a talented player while giving up little. Philadelphia declined his fourth-year rookie option before the start of the season, meaning Okafor will be a free agent at season's end.

Philadelphia had shopped Okafor to several teams this season, but found a partner with the Nets while also receiving a reliable frontcourt asset in Booker. In June, the Nets acquired D'Angelo Russell, as well as Timofey Mozgov, from the Lakers for Brook Lopez and the 27th pick in the 2017 draft. The Sixers are undergoing a franchise renaissance, armed with young superstars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons.

It speaks to Okafor's diminished value in a league increasingly reliant on speed and space that the 76ers were forced to include a second-round sweetener to part with him.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November. I just hope something happens quickly. He averaged 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game as a rookie, and the rebuilding Nets are clearly ready to take a risk on the 6-11 center.
