Emeka Okafor said he expects to be back with the Pelicans in 2018-19.
Despite being out of the league for five years due to injury, Okafor was a nice surprise for the Pelicans, averaging 4.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.0 blocks in 13.6 minutes over 26 appearances. It's unclear if the Pelicans will re-sign DeMarcus Cousins and they are talking up Cheick Diallo quite a bit, but we'd still expect the Pelicans to bring Okafor back as emergency depth -- he's only on the books for a non-guaranteed $2.4 million.
