The Pelicans added a non-guaranteed second-year to Emeka Okafor’s contract when they signed him for the rest of this season.
Okafor now has a $2.4M contract with multiple trigger dates for salary guarantees, which will count against the luxury tax next season. The Pelicans clearly liked what they saw from Okafor and so have his fantasy owners. Okafor has returned top-140 value over the last month in only 16.5 minutes per game. With Anthony Davis’s latest injury being one that may cause him to miss time, Okafor may get a few extra minutes. Okafor should be owned right now, especially if you need help in boards and blocks. He is only the second-worst center named Okafor.
