Anthony hardaway in jaleel white
I think I’ve taken the necessary steps this summer just to become a better defender, a better rebounder." Okafor isn't even guaranteed a roster spot in New Orleans this season, and even if he does make the team, it's unlikely he'll be earning much more than 20 minutes a night. Okafor's new contract with New Orleans is reportedly a two-year, partially guaranteed deal, with a team option on Year-2. 3 overall pick has a ton to prove after not being able to get into the rotation in Brooklyn last season, but with the Pelicans having a need for depth at center and room on the roster, this is a great landing spot for Okafor.
We'll be watching how his role develops at camp, but even in an ideal situation, he probably won't be much more than a late-round guy.
If he's out tonight, Cheick Diallo should pick up some minutes as AD's backup.
Okafor sprained his ankle in his first preseason game and missed the rest of the exhibition games, but it looks like he'll be available to back up Anthony Davis on opening night.
The Pelicans are on the front end of a back-to-back set, so it would be surprising to see Okafor take the floor tonight, although Thursday against Toronto seems reasonable.
It seems that Okafor has secured his spot on the regular-season roster, but he won't have much value while Anthony Davis is healthy.
Payton exited Saturday's game after twisting his ankle, and while he was initially able to play through it, it seems that the ankle swelled up on him overnight.
He doesn't have fantasy appeal, though, as long as Anthony Davis and Julius Randle are healthy.of Winnetka Road; and Tim Reid, Tamera Mowry, Tia Mowry, & Jackee Harry of Sister, Sister"The Best and Worst of the Year in TV", featuring David Caruso of NYPD Blue, Laura Leighton of Melrose Place, Brett Butler of Grace Under Fire, and Madonna from her appearance on Late Show with David Letterman* Troy Aikman of the Dallas Cowboys* John Elway of the Denver Broncos* Dan Marino of the Miami Dolphins* Joe Montana of the Kansas City Chiefs* Barry Sanders of the Detroit Lions* Thurman Thomas of the Buffalo Bills* John Madden of Fox Sports"Viewers' Guide to College Bowls", 7 covers featuring Joe Paterno, Kerry Collins, Lawrence Phillips, Danny O'Neil, Danny Wuerffel, Danny Kanell, Jay Barker, Joey Galloway, Lou Holtz, Ron Powlus, Rashaan Salaam, and Frank Costa"Winter Preview", featuring Shawn & Marlon Wayans of The Wayans Bros., Delta Burke of Women of the House, Richard Grieco of Marker, John Leguizamo of House of Buggin', and Julia Campbell of A Whole New Ballgame"100 Most Memorable Moments In TV History", featuring The Beatles & Ed Sullivan; Muhammad Ali & George Foreman; Richard Nixon; the cast of Bonanza; and Anthony Geary & Genie Francis of General Hospital"Returning Favorites" issue, featuring Cybill Shepherd of Cybill, Brandy Norwood of Moesha, Teri Hatcher of Lois & Clark, Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny of The X-Files, Jerry Seinfeld of Seinfeld, and the cast of Party of Five** Dameyune Craig of the Auburn Tigers and Kevin Jackson of the Alabama Crimson Tide** Jake Plummer of the Arizona State Sun Devils** Steve Sarkisian of the Brigham Young Cougars**Coach Steve Spurrier of the Florida Gators** Warrick Dunn of the Florida State Seminoles with coach Bobby Bowden** Pat Fitzgerald of the Northwestern Wildcats with coach Gary Barnett** Pepe Pearson of the Ohio State Buckeyes**Coach Joe Paterno of the Penn State Nittany Lions** Peyton Manning of the Tennessee Volunteers* Rosie O'Donnell of The Rosie O'Donnell Show* Stanley Cup Playoff Preview, featuring players Dominik Hašek, Mario Lemieux, Eric Lindros, Andy Moog, Patrick Roy, Brendan Shanahan, Keith Tkachuk, and John Vanbiesbrouck "Returning Favorites" preview, featuring Gillian Anderson and David Duchovny of The X-Files, Candice Bergen of Murphy Brown, Eriq La Salle and Noah Wyle of ER, Julia Louis-Dreyfus of Seinfeld, and Michael J.Fox of Spin City"Returning Favorites" issue, featuring Calista Flockhart of Ally Mc Beal, Kelsey Grammer of Frasier, Bill Cosby of Cosby, Dylan Mc Dermott of The Practice, Anthony Edwards of ER, and Sarah Michelle Gellar of Buffy the Vampire Slayer Elfman: Bob D'Amico for ABC; Cosby: Tony Esparza for CBS; Flockhart: Davis Factor for Fox; Fox: Timothy White for ABC; Applegate: Sam Jones for NBC; Smits: Gwendolen Cates for ABC; Downey: Cliff Lipsom for CBS; Allen: Kimberly Butler for ABC "Returning Favorites" issue, featuring David Duchovny of The X-Files, Jennifer Aniston of Friends, Ray Romano of Everybody Loves Raymond, Roma Downey of Touched by an Angel, D.
