The 76ers have rejected Okafor's buyout request after they were unable to trade him ahead of the deadline on rookie scale options. Today, he remains on the Philadelphia 76ers roster, but his long-term future with the teams seems to be done for after the team decided against picking up his fourth-year contract option yesterday.
"Honestly, I didn't want them to pick up my option", Okafor told reporters on Wednesday. "This is my life". This is my career, and I'm not getting an opportunity here, which is fine.
Okafor is frustrated partly because, unlike Nerlens Noel, he remained a team player despite the squad's being overcrowded at center. "I just want something to happen rather quickly".
Navy SEAL members under investigation in death of Ft. Bragg-based soldier
Two members of SEAL Team 6 were flown from Mali soon after Melgar was dead and were put on administrative leave. He declined to address how Melgar died, saying NCIS does not discuss the details of ongoing investigations.
Despite appearing in just one game this season, Okafor should have some suitors - including the Boston Celtics, who would be able to take on his $4.99 million contract using the $8.4 million designated player exception it was granted earlier this season after Gordon Hayward's injury.
The Inquirer reported that Colangelo declined to comment, but Okafor said Colangelo is the only front-office person he spoke to about a buyout.
Switch Sales Near 8M, Nintendo Aims For 14M in First Year
Nintendo , which makes Super Mario and Pokemon games, said its Switch Splatoon 2 game was selling well both in Japan and overseas. To date, Nintendo has sold 7.63 million Switch system worldwide, including 2.92 million between July and September.
But Philly never executed the trade and Okafor rejoined the team. The decision allows the Sixers to free up $6.3 million from next season's cap space. "They're going to continue to do great things, but at the same time, I want to play". It could be a buyout, it could be a trade.
"It puts me in a tough spot because I want to be on the court", Okafor said, according to The Athletic's Rich Hofmann.
In all, adding Jahil Okafor wouldn't hurt at all...if they get him to buy in to the team concept of basketball. "Bryan just didn't deem they were fair, which I understand, I'm a No. 3 pick [in 2015]". That's why the guys have been out there on social media, but I've just kind of been in the dark.
New Zealand bowl against India in 3rd ODI
Meanwhile, Kohli became the fastest to reach 9000 ODI runs, taking just 194 innings to achieve the feat. The new-ball attack led by Jasprit Bumrah and Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been a revelation.
That deadlock must get broken before Okafor, stuck in the middle, finds a better situation. "I was playing so I didn't really have any complaints". "Because he said he would be giving me away to another team for free".
