Jahlil Okafor Goes to the 76ers 3rd Overall, Have All the Big Men

By Jason McIntyre

Philadelphia, city of all the big men! After losing out on point guard D’Angelo Russell, the 76ers had no choice but to draft Duke center Jahlil Okafor 3rd overall. Now do they trade him?

They can’t possibly keep Okafor and centers Nerlens Noel and Joel Embiid … right? The NBA’s trending toward a guard league, and the 76ers are collecting post players?

What a disaster.

Maybe the 76ers give up future picks to swap Okafor and Russell?

The good news here, of course, is that Okafor will dominate the interior immediately. I’d expect 18-10 as a rookie.
