The Brooklyn Nets will release guard Sean Kilpatrick, reports The Vertical's Shams Charania. The center played in just two games this season, seeing a total of 25 minutes on the floor, and made it clear he wanted out of town on numerous occasions. He should get a fresh start with the Nets and could eat up some of the 21.9 minutes per game Booker leaves behind.

The improving Sixers (13-10) had declined their team option for next season on Okafor.

Both Stauskas and Okafor will be free agents at the end of the 2017-18 season. Okafor has also been unhappy with his role throughout the past two years and requested a buyout last month.

The Sixers drafted Okafor third overall in the 2015 NBA Draft and he averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds over 53 games while earning first-team All-NBA Rookie team honors during his first season.

Okafor is clearly gifted, though, and there indeed exists a world in which he'll carve out a meaningful National Basketball Association niche over the course of his career.
