This team announced their decision on Wednesday, the same day that the second TMZ video was released showing Okafor involved in a scuffle in Boston. The first video was released to the public last Thursday.
The soon-to-be 20-year-old sat out of the Sixers' loss Wednesday night against Knicks, but did play Tuesday in their first win of the year against the Lakers.
The brawl took place early Thursday morning, a day after Philadelphia played the Celtics, and involved Okafor and an unidentified male. The victim did file a report to the Boston Police Department after two separate scuffles with the former Duke Blue Devil.
Okafor was reportedly pulled over in October for going 108 mph, according to a Boston newspaper, and also presented fake identification at a Tavern in Philadelphia that same month. He has yet to face legal repercussions or league discipline for those specific incidents.
Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown said the team still fully supports the third overall pick in last year's draft. Brown admits that nobody is proud of Okafor's recent actions, but the young star has owned up to his mistakes. Despite that, a two-game ban may not be enough to get through to Okafor, but it's definitely a start.
