NBA player profile for Jahlil Okafor with stats and fantasy analysis

JAHLIL
OKAFOR

Jan. 23, 2019 - There's no denying that Jahlil Okafor can fill the stat sheet in conventionally impressive ways. The problem, however, is his ability to keep pace with today's NBA. Sure, the 23-year-old may have suffered disproportionately from the league's transition away from old school back-to-the-basket big men, a phenomenon that's made him somewhat underrated, but if teams don't want to adjust their style to accommodate for his skill set then he's destined for a niche role with inconsistent playing time. Monitor his role in New Orleans, especially with Anthony Davis sidelined, but tread lightly. (@AustinKent)

The first step in saving his career was getting in shape and staying healthy. Will be interesting to see if Jahlil Okafor can round out his game. The most important step will be drastically improving on the defensive end: t.co

The Russell pick took some time to bear fruit, obviously. But he blossomed into an All-Star when most of the league assumed the Lakers would select Jahlil Okafor.

Interesting nugget on the Suns signing of Cheick Diallo - Pelicans liked him and wanted to keep but decision came down to him or Jahlil Okafor. Pelicans got 3 for 1 in AD trade, had 3 draft picks and signed a couple of free agents so letting him go just came down to numbers.
