The Jahlil Okafor-Philadelphia 76ers saga has finally come to an end.

According to ESPN's Zach Lowe, The Philadelphia 76ers are acquiring power forward Trevor Booker from the Brooklyn Nets.

Philadelphia has excised Okafor from its rotation after declining their team option on him for next season, and Okafor's representatives have asked for a trade or a buyout.

Okafor played just two games for the Sixers this season.

Players of a similar ilk, like Greg Monroe and Al Jefferson, have recently made an impact coming off the bench to give second units some scoring punch. While he averaged 14.6 points for the Sixers, and shot 51 percent from the field, he was marginalized by Embiid's rise to stardom.

The team acquired Stauskas in a trade from the Sacramento Kings in a July 2015 trade.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN last month.

Okafor, 21, will now receive a fresh start to a once-promising career, which included averages of 17.5 points, seven rebounds and 1.2 blocks in 53 games as a rookie. The Sixers free up cap space for this upcoming offseason by moving Stauskas asusming that they do not retain Booker's services beyond this season.
