The Bulls have been linked to Jahlil Okafor and they continue to have conversations with the Sixers about acquiring the big man, Adrian Wojnarowski of The Vertical reports (Twitter link). It’s unclear what Chicago is willing to give up in exchange for the former No. 3 overall pick.
The Sixers are reportedly seeking at least one first-rounder in exchange for Okafor, as I mentioned in the center’s Trade Candidate piece. The Pacers recently showed interest in Okafor after reports indicated they were willing to move their 2017 first-rounder in a trade.
Philadelphia discussed Okafor with the Pistons regarding a deal that would send Kentavious Caldwell-Pope to Philly, but Detroit was uninterested in such an offer. The Sixers previously had discussions with the Pelicans before they acquired DeMarcus Cousins and the team was close to shipping Okafor to Portland before the Blazers traded for Jusuf Nurkic.
