The Sixers and the Pelicans might be near an agreement involving Jahil Okafor.

Jahil Okafor, recently involved in trade rumors for the Bulls, might be leaving to play for New Orleans, as the Sixers are having talks with the Pelicans.

The supposed trade would take Okafor for NOLA and a 1st round pick. If this pick is protected, it’s expected the Sixers would also take on Ajinca or or Omer Asik’s contract.

Sixers Analysis – The 76ers have already big names for the 4 & 5 positions: Ilyasova, Saric, Embiid, Noel and Holmes, and a future 1st round pick and either Ajinca or Asik’s experience would be great for Sixers’s young blood.

Pelicans Analysis – Okafor would be a great fit with Anthony Davis inside, and, since the Pelicans aren’t rebuilding anymore, they could risk to lose a future 1st round pick to try to make it to the Playoffs.
