2015 NBA Draft: Philadelphia 76ers Select Duke C Jahlil Okafor

With the third overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, the Philadelphia 76ers select Jahlil Okafor out of Duke.

Position: Center

School: Duke

Class: Freshman

Measurables: 6’11”, 272 lbs.


Okafor has a fully developed post game, quick feet, soft hands, and runs the floor well. He has also developed into a solid defender at Duke, and he seems destined to be the next great prototypical NBA big man. There are some questions about his conditioning and defensive ability, but his offensive game is so advanced that he should average over 15 points per game right away in the NBA.
