The Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick to create roster space for the trade, league sources said.

Okafor has played in only two games for the 76ers this season and has seen his minutes dwindle as his career has progressed. The 76ers have traded Okafor to the Brooklyn Nets, along with Canadian guard Nik Stauskas and a second-round draft pick for power forward Trevor Booker.

Jahlil Okafor's days of suffering on the pine in Philadelphia have finally come to an end.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November.

Mass. Hit With Early Flu Season
This winter all visitors to Vancouver hospitals and nursing homes once again must get a flu shot or wear a surgical mask. Such infections can dramatically increase the risk of heart attack and stroke for months after the illness has cleared.

Philadelphia has excised Okafor from its rotation after declining their team option on him for next season, and Okafor's representatives have asked for a trade or a buyout.

As for whether the Sixers should be anxious about this trade coming back to haunt them down the road when considering the Nets are in the same division, well let's just say Okafor hasn't given the team any reason for panic. He has played in only six of Philadelphia's 23 games this season.

In Brooklyn, Okafor will join a young core that includes D'Angelo Russell and Allen Crabbe.

In Booker, Philadelphia will add a veteran forward averaging 10.1 points and 6.6 rebounds in his eighth National Basketball Association season.
