An NBA trade is about to go down.
Philadelphia 76ers forward Jahlil Okafor is finally getting his wish. After being drafted by the team with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 draft, Okafor has yet to play a significant role in Philly.
According to Zach Lowe of ESPN, Okafor will now get a shot to play.
Lowe reported that the 76ers are trading Okafor, Nic Stauskas and a second-round pick for Trevor Booker.
Philly will send Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a second-round pick to Brooklyn for Trevor Booker, sources say.

The 76ers slogan, “Trust the process” is finally coming to fruition as Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons have made a significant impact with the team thus far. After waiting for both to get healthy, Philly currently sits in the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference and could make the playoffs for the first time since the 2011-2012 season.
Okafor, a former Duke star, should finally see the playing time he’s been begging for since he was drafted.
