Jahlil Okafor
C, 6’11, 275lbs, 21 years old, 2 years of experience

The odd man out, has been since day one, and is not making the adjustments to win his place in the future. Regressed statistically from a rookie season that was already more favourable statistically than it was in reality; shot the ball less, rebounded it less, turned it over more, and exerted no significantly better defensive energy, if at all. On the trade market, Okafor would be younger and cheaper than, say, Enes Kanter as a we-need-a-big-off-the-bench-to-focus-our-second-unit-offence-around-because-we-saw-Greg-Monroe-do-it-so-well-last-year type of player, but youth is not synonymous with potential. To still have relevant potential, Okafor needs to be actively seen to improve, both his skills and his effort. If he doesn’t want it, he soon won’t have it.

Player Plan: Two years of rookie scale salary remaining. It is plainly never going to work here, and nor will the value increase with Simmons and Embiid’s returns. So this is probably the summer to move him, even if it means losing the assets side of the trade.
