After acquiring Sekou Doumbouya and Jahlil Okafor via trade from the Detroit Pistons, the Nets are now waiving Okafor. The 25-year-old big man is bound to get interest from various teams as a free agent, but it seemed like in Brooklyn a role could not be carved out for the Arizona native. Last season in Detroit, he averaged 5.4 PPG and 2.4 RPG in 12.9 MPG.

When playing for the Nets in 2017, Okafor was given an opportunity to prove himself to the organization. In that season, the young big man went for 6.4 PPG along with 2.9 RPG. The stint was short lived though because a year later he joined the New Orleans Pelicans. It’s only a matter of time before another team in the league scoops him in the coming days.
