Okafor: 'I`m 21 and I only want to play!'

Jahlil Okafor will have more to play a minute for Philadelphia. The 21-year-old center turned out to be unnecessary in the Chessers, and the management did not activate the extension clause in his contract that would have left him in Pennsylvania until 2019. More interesting in this case is that, despite its unwelcome status, Philly is not ready to negotiate for his contract to be redeemed.

Bryan Colangelo does not think the idea is good because he thinks he will almost give me a team for free. I thought the situation would be resolved and on November 1 I will not be here, but here it is not. I`m still here and looking for where to play. I`m only 21, I`m healthy, and I just want to be on the pitch, `said Okafor.

According to various sources, Boccon has the most interest in Okafor. The Celtics were mentioned as a potential candidate for Jalil and the previous times when he was talking about his Philadelphia removal. The 211-centimeter center has 22 minutes this season and has played in just one game.
