The 76ers will also send guard Nik Stauskas to the Nets, sources said.

The 21-year-old appeared in just two games this season, totaling 10 points and nine rebounds in 25 minutes. He has enough upside in Brooklyn to be worth adding while you still can.

The No. 3 pick by the Sixers in the 2015 draft had fallen out of favor in Philly, buried on the depth chart and seeking trade dating back to last season.

The Philadelphia 76ers have agreed to trade center Jahlil Okafor to the Brooklyn Nets, according to ESPN's Zach Lowe.

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. Boston has until Friday to use their $8.4 million DPE to acquire a player whom they could trade again at the deadline on February 8, so there is still a possibility of movement around the league. He has played in only six of Philadelphia's 23 games this season. He now joins D'Angelo Russell, the No. 2 pick in that draft, on a Nets roster with some intriguing young talent. He averaged 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game as a rookie, and the rebuilding Nets are clearly ready to take a risk on the 6-11 center.
