Trade is official

Philly gets Trevor Booker

Brooklyn gets Okafor, Staukas, and a 2019 2nd Rd pick

Philly overpays to get rid of Okafor but gets a decent player in Booker

Brooklyn gets a decent SG, a 2nd Rd pick, and to try to make Okafor into a decent player.

Only time will tell who wins this one

i got to say, bad move for philly. what is the incentive here? i see booker as an expiring for their cap room, and they give up staus and a pick?
they shouldve just let jah walk at seasons end.

agree with donadamsky.
no idea why Philly would do this.
Booker is a good player, but he's just an expiring contract.

He's a good player, but he's also another one of those stable veteran guys who is great in the locker room. He'll add a good presence in Philly, while the Nets will likely miss that. I think the Nets come out ahead though. Booker's not there long term anyway, and they get two former lotto picks on redemption deals. It could wind up being much ado about nothing, but it could also become a win win.

Philly is clearing space now for next year with hopes that LBJ goes to them instead of LAL, if he leaves at all. Booker will help this year and then be a UFA next year.

LBJ's best shot to win another title would be with Philly not the Lakers.

Sixers lost this trade. Okafor is already unrestricted. You can also don't give qualifying offer to stauskas. So they are basically out of book after this season. Why do they need to attach that 2nd rd pick?

My thoughts are Stauskas, being included was what necessitates pick. He hasn't been coveted even on a lousy rebuilding Kings squad. They even paid to ditch him. Booker will be serviceable, and Philly has eyes on Playoffs, and resting Embid every other night makes Booker deal not too bad in my eyes. He will play a lot sooner than Bret Brown is letting on.
