Philly will send Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a second-round pick to Brooklyn for Trevor Booker, sources say.

Argh, what a terrible trade... Could we seriously not beat that offer at all..?

Assuming Danny didn't want to use the DPE, then we didn't have the salaries to match up without giving up a rotation guy.

That's still a heck of a deal for Brooklyn though.
Danny Ainge got fleeced.

Black hole on offense, no defense.

Danny still has DPE to get another big. With the way Theis and Baynes have contributed,  a wing might make more sense.

Almost anyone could beat that offer. The issue is nobody else wanted him.

Booker is solid. Good for Sixers

Booker is solid, but it tells you how the 76ers literally shot Okafor's value down the drain, because they had to throw a second rounder in....

Okafor stinks. We definitely could have beaten the offer, but why would we have wanted to?

Nets now have two of the top 3 picks from the 2015 draft, in which they started with pick #29.

Exactly. If Danny had wanted Okafor it's clear he could've had him.

The funny thing is, now that he's on the Nets, I'm hoping I'm kind of wrong about Okafor and he has a nice season for them and helps them win some games. Or at least Stauskas does.

I don't care what anyone says about Okafor... He still has plenty of potential left. This bodes well for us, especially since I hope it diminishes the value of the pick for the Cavs from the Nets, unless the Nets really needed Booker.

Finally....the trade Okafor to Boston threads and talk will come to an end.

Good trade for Philly. Bokker is a player....unlike Stauskas and Okafor

Good for Philly. It’s telling that they had to attach a second rounder though.

Nonsense.  There’s nothing stopping the Nets from trading Okafor to the Celtics.  Furthermore, the Celtics can offer more in free agency than the Nets.

See how easy that was to keep the (bizarre) dream alive for people?
