According to Fred Katz from The Athletic, 35-year-old center Emeka Okafor and NBA Rookie of the Year (2005) has signed a non-guaranteed, to a training camp contract for the veteran’s minimum with the Philadelphia 76ers.

Okafor once already played for the Sixers – last September he signed the deal with Philadelphia, but on October 14 after playing in five preseason games was waved by the team.

In 2013-2014 season Emeka Okafor missed entire season due to health issues and remained a free agent in 2014-2015, 2015-2016, 2016-2017 seasons.

Last season Okafor played in the New Orleans Pelicans and was averaging 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 block per game.
