Sixers Select Jahlil Okafor With the No.3 Pick

Coming into Thursday’s NBA Draft, Jahlil Okafor of Duke was still being projected by many as the top pick, but he ended up falling to third to the Philadelphia 76ers.

Nerlens Noel, yet-to-play Joel Embiid and Okafor all in the same froncourt? It’ll be interesting to see how the Sixers make this one work.

Okafor averaged 17.3 points and 8.5 rebounds per game last season leading the Blue Devils to the NCAA National Championship.

He’s ready for Philly.
