Jahlil Okafor wasn't going to bite his lip this time. The Philadelphia 76ers big man went on the offensive Sunday after running across a report that claimed he was upset with the Sixers after reportedly being included in trade talks.
According to the Bucks County Courier Times, Okafor was "upset and his people are upset" because 76ers GM Bryan Colangelo "tried like hell" to trade him.
Okafor apparently had seen enough.

One second I'm reportedly upset to be in Philly, then the next I'm upset about trade rumors and having to leave Philly.— Jahlil Okafor (@JahlilOkafor) July 11, 2016
Which one is it? Source please confirm. Seems like writers are getting lazy, dropping a fraudulent story and try to make it credible by— Jahlil Okafor (@JahlilOkafor) July 11, 2016
