Jacksonville will sign Cleveland's transition-tagged C Alex Mack to a 5-year offer sheet the Browns will have five days to match.
Now this could become a tenuous situation here as the Browns have more than enough cap space to match any fair offer the Jaguars present but word on the street is that Mack doesn't want to stay in Cleveland. Reports coming in say that Mack is champing at the bit to sign a five-year deal with Jacksonville which obviously puts the Browns in a terrible spot with perhaps the top center in the NFL right now. This one could end up as a potential episode of The Young and the Restless.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Jahlil Okafor scored 14 points (7-18 FGA) with nine rebounds, three blocks, one steal and one assist in 30 minutes on Monday for the 76ers.
Concern came when Okafor switched to the four from the five as the guarding of stretch fours could cost him rebounds and make run more than he typically does on the block, but with the early results in, it seems that those concerns are not to be worried about. Following the best game of his young career on Saturday, Monday's outing was another very solid effort from the Duke product coming close to yet another double-double and contributing in every category. Now that we are passed the typical college season in terms of games played, it's good to see that the rookie is keeping his production steady. He should be a starter every night in all formats.
