Not on paper but NOLA & Philly in talks on a Alexis Ajinca & future first rounder '18 for Jahlil Okafor (ESPN)

That is a good deal. NO has a lottery pick in this year's draft and could themselves a PG or SG to help out.

That's a great deal for the Pelicans no doubt.  AD and Okafor would be a very interesting duo considering AD can space the floor a bit and still allow Okafor enough room to operate down low.  AD also can mask some of Okafor's defensive woes.  AD just needs to show that he can play more than 65 games in a season though.

Agreed. It may also help Buddy. With Okafor post up game and AD's ability to step out it will open up their offense alittle more. Jrue, AD, Okafor and a lottery pick like Isaac this year's draft, could be a decent tandem in the league.

Russell is waaaaay better and has waaaaaay higher upside than Okafor, who is a dinosaur. Non-rebounding, no-defense playing Cs that cant stretch the floor are close to worthless at this point.

Okafor will benefit a lot by getting away from that 76er team.

Jah has gotten short changed here in Philly, but for good reason. Embidd has looked amazing. Jah needs a solid system and surrounded by shooters, that is not here in Philly. His price is lower than what it would be from lack of play and the fact everyone in the league knows Philly wants to ship him and Noel out of town. 

 

I would not trade Russel for Jah even though I was more for Okafor on draft night.


All I want for Christmas is a Laker girl :D

I honestly have no idea, I just mention as a joke at this point because a handful of his haters always seem to bring it up.  "Russell needs to be putting work at the gym instead of his hair" type of stuff haha
