While it may seem pretty astonishing to have Jahlil on the second team, think about it. Okafor is going into a situation that will limit his playing time. Even with Joel Embiid not being healthy, the 76ers are starting to become a farm system for the entire NBA. General manager Sam Hinke loves to wheel and deal players. My thought is that Okafor will be slotted into a rotation of big men, which will limit his exposure and might be shipped to another team.
