Report: Bulls Inquiring About 76ers’ Jahlil Okafor

(CBS) The Bulls have interest in 76ers center Jahlil Okafor, according to Vincent Goodwill of CSNChicago.com.

A Chicago native, Okafor has seen a reduced role with the 76ers as both Joel Embiid and Nerlens Noel have taken on more playing time.

The 21-year-old Okafor averaged 17.5 points and 7.0 rebounds last season. He’s averaging 11.5 points and 4.7 rebounds this season.

Okafor was the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, after helping lead Duke to a national championship.

There’s more interest coming from the Bulls than there is from the 76ers, according to the report.
