It ends a long saga between the Sixers and Okafor that's gotten ugly in recent months, and both parties can finally move on.
Okafor, the No. 3 pick of the 2015 draft, was dropped from the rotation this year and has played in only two games.
Flynn said sanctions would be 'ripped up'
The whistleblower was "extremely uncomfortable" with the situation, and made notes about it and Copson's name. Flynn said on a federal filing that he served as an advisor to the company between April 2015 and June 2016.
The Philadelphia 76ers trade Okafor, Nik Stauskas, and a 2019 second-round to the Brooklyn Nets for Trevor Booker. The Sixers are undergoing a franchise renaissance, armed with young superstars Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. He has played in only six of Philadelphia's 23 games this season. He averaged 17.5 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.2 blocks per game as a rookie but the 6-11 center saw the number and playing time decrease since his first year.
The asking price for Okafor had dropped severely since last season, so the Sixers snagging Booker in this deal could be viewed as a steal.

The beer selection includes six packs of Budweiser, Bud Light, Shock Top and Kilt Lifter, which is a favorite in the Phoenix area. Its biggest competitors Dominos and Papa John's will only delivery soft drinks and bottled water shows each of their websites.
The Boston Celtics were nearly always mentioned in rumored deals for Okafor (then again, which rumors weren't they mentioned in the last few years?), and in a way, Thursday's trade will likely make Boston fans smile just a little bit. The change of scenery seemed to help Russell, who was averaging a team-high 20.9 points per game this season before suffering a knee injury.
Booker, the 76ers' reward, was averaging just over 10 points and two assists in 18 games played this season.
