In the event that the Philadelphia 76ers were to hold on to Okafor through the trade deadline, I think the Bucks would be a good fit if Greg Monroe opts out of his contract and signs elsewhere this summer. Okafor could slide into that role.
Limited Womens Nate Solder Jersey For now, I think the Pelicans are probably the best fit. Given they’re 27th in offensive rating, they have less to lose by rebuilding their offense around Okafor than most teams. So it’s understandable to me that New Orleans has been linked to an Okafor trade.
New Orleans had also made inquiries about Indiana Pacers star Paul George ahead of Thursday’s trade deadline in the hopes of landing another All-Star to pair with franchise player, and newly minted All-Star Game MVP, Anthony Davis, league sources told ESPN’s Justin Verrier.
Davis was informed of the trade as he walked away from the podium following his MVP performance, greeting the news with a smile and a big thumbs-up.
“This is an unbelievable weekend,” Davis told ESPN’s Jeff Goodman. “All-Star MVP and now getting Boogie. It doesn’t get better than this.”
Davis told Goodman he hasn’t heard anything official from management or talked to Cousins yet.
Cousins, who is averaging 27.8 points and 10.6 rebounds, played only two minutes in Sunday night’s All-Star Game. He was flying back to Sacramento on a private plane with his assistants and family and is expected to return to New Orleans on Tuesday, a source told The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears.
