Free agent big man Jahlil Okafor has agreed to a partially guaranteed one-year contract with the Pelicans, reports ESPN. The deal also includes a team option for the 2019-20 season.
Okafor, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft, has struggled to find his footing in the league since a productive rookie season with the 76ers. The Pelicans will be his third team since December after he left Philadelphia for a brief stint with the Nets.
