76ers in talks to send Jahlil Okafor to Pelicans, per report

Jahlil Okafor might be on the way out of Philadelphia. Who stays and who goes behind Joel Embiid?

According to USA Today's Sam Amick, the two teams are in "serious trade talks" but the Pelicans reportedly want lottery protection for the first round pick that they'll inevitably part with if a deal is made.

New Orleans is reportedly in talks with the Sixers about bringing center Jahlil Okafor on board, but Philly isn't the only club the Pelicans are talking to about a center upgrade.

With Embiid shining in 2016-17, it seemed inevitable that 76ers general manager Bryan Colangelo would ship either Okafor or power forward/center Nerlens Noel out of town before the 2017 National Basketball Association trade deadline.

For the Pelicans, adding Okafor's low-post scoring ability and pairing him with Anthony Davis is intriguing and would allow Davis to play the power forward position on a full-time basis. With Embiid as the franchise cornerstone and Noel's defensive ability and ability to finish at the rim a fit for the current rotation, Okafor didn't have a place.
