Brooklyn Nets guard Jahlil Okafor is still on the team’s roster and the Nets would love to keep him, but he’s not available to them right now, league sources told ESPN.
The team has no interest, according to sources, and the only free spot for the 27-year-old is in the third round of the draft, where the Brooklyn Nets select UCLA’s Jamal Murray, who is averaging 9.8 points and 7.3 rebounds per game.
DraftExpress.com reported the Nets have made no offer to acquire the guard.
They also have no intention of trading OkaFOR, according the sources.
The Nets are in the midst of an overhaul and are in need of help.
They have no choice but to keep OkaFor if they want to make the playoffs.
