The Pelicans waived Emeka Okafor - Sep 19, 2018

Emeka Okafor
EMEKA OKAFOR

New Orleans Pelicans (NBA) waived experienced 36-year old power forward Emeka Okafor (208-116kg-82, college: Connecticut).
The most of last season he spent at Delaware 87ers where in 26 League games he recorded 6.8ppg, 8.0rpg and 1.4apg. Okafor also spent pre-season at the 76ers that year. He helped them to make it to the conference semifinals.
In 2004 Okafor was drafted by Charlotte Bobcats as #2 pick overall. He attended University of Connecticut and it is his 15th (!!!) season in pro basketball. Okafor was a member of USA Senior National Team between 2003 and 2004.
He has spent his entire career in NBA playing for two other teams: Phoenix Suns and Washington Wizards.
The scouts decsribe him following way: Expected to see duty at both center and power forward. Very mobile big man with excellent defensive skills. Outstanding shot blocker.
Outlook (by NBADraft.TK):
Postives: Phenomenal shot blocker. He already has NBA ready shot blocking and rebounding skills. Great defensive instincts and good timing on his shot blocking. Of coarse his frame and long arms help him block shots well. Very athletic and solid work ethic. Has the drive to become a great player. Always willing to improve his game and has a lot heart. His offense is definitely solid and continues to expand it with added low post moves and a midrange shot. Good touch and finisher around the basket. Aggresive at banging the boards at both ends of the floor. Unbelievable attitude towards the game. The closest thing to a sure thing in this year's draft.
Negatives: Free throw shooting is a problem. Offensive skills are greatly improving year after year, but could use some polish. Passing in general could use improvements. Bad hands in the post and turns it over too much in the post
.

Guards:
Jarrett Jack
Darius Morris
Jrue Holiday
