The New Orleans Pelicans are planning to sign veteran big man Emeka Okafor to a 10-day contract, according to Yahoo Sports. Okafor, 35, has spent nine seasons in the NBA, but hasn't played in the league since 2012-13 after a herniated disc in his neck sidelined him until being medically cleared in May 2017. The 6-10, 252-pound center played 26 games in the G League with the Delaware 87ers this year in an attempt to make his comeback to the NBA. He averaged 6.8 points and 8.0 rebounds in 19.9 minutes per game.
