He isn't in their future plans so it is kind of a waste to give his minutes to guys they are thinking of bringing back. I honestly am not sure that he gets a guaranteed contract next year. He may end up in China.

Someone will definitely take a chance on him as their 3rd string center if he would accept that role.

Hell I'd be fine with him having that role in Boston, especially if it can't keep both Baynes and Monroe.

Backup plan for some teams backup C role.   


I agree, if Boston doesn't keep both of Monroe and Baynes (and does find a replacement/upgrade in the draft), he could carve out a spot on the Celtics bench based on matchups. 

Knicks: Irving, Drummond, Marcus Morris, S. Muhammad, C. Lee, Sullinger, Hield, M. Chriss , V. Carter, T. Zeller, N. Cole, T. Prince, Livio Jean-Charles, Tyler Ulis, N. Collison

He's the guy that half of the board traded Marcus Smart for.

It is disgraceful that Emeka Okafor is a better player right now that Jahlil

Still young but man, what a bust.

Such a waste of (offensive) talent.

Considering we likely won't be able to keep BOTH Baynes + Monroe after this year (probably just 1), see if Okafor is willing to come here on a 1 year, vet. min deal to build his value. Best case scenario, he's an above average big for us off the bench. Low risk, but potentially high reward. I think Okafor would legitimately consider it since it's not like a team is willing to hand him a big contract now obviously, and who better than CBS to increase his stock while also being able to play for a contender.

Booker (cut by 76ers) for Okafor (not in the rotation) and Knicks 2019 2nd

Overseas next season is my guess.

What are people still into with him? The nets, one of the worst teams in the league, could not find a way to play him. Their coach also said he was out of shape. I get the belief in Brad and all, but this seems like really hoping for two much for a guy that doesn't seem to want it.

Brad Stevens hasn't been able to raise the value or play of James Young, RJ Hunter, Jordan Mickey, Jared Sullinger, Kelly Olynyk or Marcus Smart. None of those players got really, any much better while playing under Stevens. They came in as one player and after bei g around Stevens, sometimes for 4 years, were still pretty much the same player.

Sometimes players just aren't good or don't really develop any. I tend to think Ojafor is one of those players and Stevens isn't going to make any difference in his development.
