Sixers Notes: Valentine, Okafor, Brown

The Sixers should try to acquire Denzel Valentine from the Bulls if they are going to send Jahlil Okafor to Chicago, Bob Brookover of the Philadelphia Inquirer opines. The Bulls reached out to the Sixers regarding an Okafor trade last week.

The details of their talks have not been made clear, though it presumably involves at least one prospect heading to Philadelphia. Valentine or Doug McDermott are potential trade pieces and Brookover believes the former is the better option should the Sixers have to decide between the two. The scribe envisions Valentine developing into a playmaker whom can stretch the floor, while he views McDermott as a career bench player.

Here’s more from Philadelphia:

  • David Murphy of the Philadelphia Inquirer wonders why Okafor hasn’t improved all that much since coming to the Sixers. Murphy points out that Nerlens Noel and T.J. McConnell have improved considerably, while Okafor has plateaued.
  • Brett Brown is impressed with the way Okafor has handled hearing his name in trade rumors, Keith Pompey of the Philadelphia Inquirer writes. The coach said that Okafor should be proud of his work both on and off the court. “We remind him, ‘Go read your resumé,’ “ Brown said. ” ‘You go have a look at who you are.’ And he’s got a lot to be proud of on the court.”

    Ill take a pass on Valentine. I would try to move him to Orlando for Herzonja.

      The bulls need to make a trade for some of these young players as they aren’t going any where as they stand.

    • The fact that you think the sixers would let rondo anywhere near this team discredits anything you say after that

      The Sixers aren’t getting a 1st round pick for Okafor, and nobody’s trading for Stauskas.

    I’d take Valentine over Doug any day. Denzel would be a great fit for the Sixers and given the minutes he would fill the stat sheets. If the Sixers could get Valentine and a draft pick it will be a great trade, especially long term.
