Okafor was in line to make $6.3 million in what would be his fourth year, if the option had been picked up. During that span, Okafor averaged 17.5 points and seven rebounds in 30 minutes per game while shooting 50.8 percent from the floor and 68.6 percent from the free-throw line.
Okafor had fallen out of the team's rotation this season, appearing in just one game against Toronto in which he played 22 minutes and finished with 10 points and nine rebounds. But Okafor doesn't care how he leaves; he just wants to play somewhere else, even if that means getting traded before the National Basketball Association trade deadline in February. "I want the team to do great things, but at the same time I want to play".
"I've asked for a buyout", Okafor told reporters after practice on Wednesday. With Embiid's rise to prominence, Okafor has since been shuffled out of the lineup entirely - and he now just wants a chance to play somewhere else.
Okafor says that he didn't believe he'd still be with the Sixers when the deadline for his option came up. So the fact that I know that at the end of the season I would at least have an opportunity to play elsewhere, that's great. "But that's where we stand today because you waited so long to trade me". But Okafor said the team has not engaged with him on that possibility. However, they would only do it if Robert Covington was included in the trade. I'm not playing here and at the end of the season, I'm an unrestricted free agent.
