Okafor scored 11 points (5-7 FG, 1-2 FT) while adding six rebounds, two assists and a steal in 17 minutes off the bench during Friday's preseason loss to the Celtics.

Heading into his third NBA campaign, Okafor's best chance at repeating the production he managed in his rookie year might have to come via a trade.
