Former Blue Devil Jahlil Okafor was involved in a street fight outside a Boston nightclub. This year's No. 3 overall pick can be seen punching a man in the face on video obtained by TMZ.
TMZ released the video Thursday morning which shows a man identified as Okafor engaging several individuals before a scuffle broke out. The subject believed to be Okafor can be seen punching a man who goes down immediately.
The 76ers released a statement Thursday evening.
"We are aware of the report and we are currently working to gather additional information," the team said. "Until that time, we will have no further comment."
On the season Okafor is leading Philadelphia in scoring (18.4) and averaging 8.1 rebounds per game as well. The team has lost 16 straight games to open the season and 26 straight dating back to last season.
