Pelicans' Jahlil Okafor: Reaches deal with New Orleans
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor agreed Wednesday with the Pelicans on a two-year contract, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN. The deal contains a partial guarantee for the 2018-19 campaign and a team option for 2019-20.

As a traditional back-to-the-basket big man with limited skills as a rim protector in addition to his difficulties staying healthy, Okafor has mostly been a disappointment since the 76ers selected him with the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft. Philadelphia declined Okafor's fourth-year team option last October and eventually shipped him to Brooklyn in December, but the center was unable to carve out much of a role with the Nets, as he averaged 6.4 points and 2.9 rebounds in 12.6 minutes per game over 26 contests. Though he lingered on the free-agent market deep into the summer, Okafor will have a realistic shot at winning a spot on the Pelicans' roster with the team only possessing 12 guaranteed contracts at the moment. In a best-case scenario, Okafor would likely serve as a second-unit scorer for New Orleans or as a potential replacement in the starting five if Anthony Davis were to miss time with an injury.

Nets' Jahlil Okafor: Very disappointing sesaon
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor averaged just 6.3 points, 3.0 rebounds and 0.4 assists over 28 games played with the 76ers and Nets in 2017-18.

Okafor had a very disappointing third NBA season, as he only saw the court for 28 total games due to many things not named injuries. The former Duke standout scored in double figures inn eight of those games with his season high of 21 points coming on Jan. 27 at Minnesota. It will be surprising which team will offer Okafor a contract this off-season, as he is set to become a free agent in July.

Nets' Jahlil Okafor: Doesn't see floor Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (coach's decision) didn't see the floor in Saturday's 124-96 win over the Bulls.

Okafor was reportedly available to play after working through a recent ankle issue, but he never made onto the court despite the Nets' comfortable second-half advantage. The former third overall pick was highly productive last Tuesday in the first game action since March 16, posting 15 points over just 16 minutes against his former Sixers teammates. Okafor's penultimate chance for playing time comes in Monday night's rematch with the Bulls.

Nets' Jahlil Okafor: Available Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor is available for Saturday's game against Chicago, Alex Labidou of BrooklynNets.com reports.

Okafor has played in only one game since mid-March, but he could be a minor factor off the bench as the Nets coast toward the end of the season. In Tuesday's loss to Philly, Okafor had 15 points and five boards in 16 minutes.

Nets' Jahlil Okafor: Questionable Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor (ankle) is listed as questionable for Saturday's game against the Bulls, Brian Lewis of the New York Post reports.

Okafor was unable to play in Thursday's victory over Milwaukee and is looking like a game-time decision Saturday. The big man has just three games left to try and end a disappointing season on a high note.
