The #FreeJah campaign reached its conclusion on Thursday, as the Philadelphia 76ers traded seldom-used big man Jahlil Okafor to the Brooklyn Nets. Also headed to Brooklyn is shooting guard Nik Stauskas, and the Nets will also receive the 2019 second-round pick that was once the property of the New York Knicks.

In exchange Philadelphia received veteran power forward Trevor Booker.

In the aftermath of the deal many sought the thoughts of center Joel Embiid, who discussed the details of his post-trade conversation with Okafor ahead of Philadelphia’s game against the Los Angeles Lakers Thursday night.

Embiid did wish Okafor luck… while also issuing a warning of sorts.
