Looks like Jahlil Okafor is getting his wish.

An NBA trade is about to go down.

.

Luckily, after all of the trade rumors dating back to last season, Philadelphia seems like they're finally going to get Okafor off their hands this week after a report claims the team is finalizing a trade with the Brooklyn Nets.

Pearson (LON:PSON) Stock Rating Reaffirmed by Kepler Capital Markets
The stock of Ashtead Group plc (LON:AHT) has "Overweight" rating given on Wednesday, March 2 by JP Morgan. The firm operates through three divisions: Insurance, Travel, and Emerging Businesses and Central Costs.

For the Sixers, there is no doubt that this trade has lifted a cloud that has been hovering the organization for the previous year and a half. Not only that, the center logjam would've caused serious problems, and well, it did. Okafor has played only 12 minutes and Stauskas has played in only 6 games.

Stauskas has played in six games for the 76ers on the year.

Okafor has been a disappointment for the 76ers since the team drafted him third overall in 2015, and never quite fit into what they wanted to do on the floor.

Whistleblower: Flynn texts broached nuclear plan, sanctions
Flynn allegedly sent the messages to Alex Copson, managing partner of ACU Strategic Partners, a U.S. nuclear power consultancy. The memo was intended for Trump to sign, though there's no indication the President saw it, the Journal reported.

"I know it's business, but in my eyes, I don't know if it's good business".

Already loaded with forwards, Trevor Booker will have to find a way into the 76ers rotation. Dario Saric is now starting at power forward and Embiid at center, with Amir Johnson backing them up.

"I would like for them to just send me somewhere where I can get an opportunity", Okafor told ESPN in November.

Fitbit's smartwatch gets a whole bunch of new apps
And, while Fitbit has Pandora for on-watch music in the US, Fitbit is partnering with Deezer for music internationally. Ionic has a way to go on the smartwatch front with the absence of quality apps being one of its biggest criticisms.

Okafor figures to see significant playing time for the Nets, whether it be as a starter or as a sixth or seventh man off the bench.
