No way the 76ers would do this, but in a heart beat the Bulls should trade Payne for Okafor. Or even a Mirotic or a Portis.

Payne for Okafor would be a no-brainer, but no chance that would get the deal done.

And why would the Sixers even consider a buyout? That would be worse than letting the guy walk in free-agency. This article seems like it was written by Sam Smith.



NBA insider Smith wrote on Friday that the Sixers were expecting to receive a lottery pick in return for Okafor. Doubt they will get it. He also stated that it is why he hasn't been moved yet

Not much of a market. He's a "name" amoung fans but most NBA execs realize Okafor is a small forward in a center's body who can't defend or rebound. He's awful.

He isn't "awful."

I don't care much for Okafor, but Philadelphia has completely undermined both his development and his value. There's no reason to believe he cannot ever improve on defense at age 21, and any laziness accusations directed his way can be directly linked to the awful culture Philadelphia has created (the same kind of culture GarPax are attempting to create in Chicago BTW).
