Sources: Emeka Okafor to join Sixers' G League team with hopes of playing in NBA again

Emeka Okafor has agreed to play for the Philadelphia 76ers' G League team, the Delaware 87ers, in hopes of signing with an NBA team in the coming months, league sources told ESPN.

Okafor, the second overall pick in the 2004 NBA draft, was in training camp with the 76ers before the club waived him on Saturday.

Okafor, 35, hasn't played in an NBA regular-season game since April 15, 2013, because of a herniated disk in his neck. Okafor, the 2005 NBA Rookie of the Year, was medically cleared to play five months ago.

Okafor has averaged 12.3 points and 9.9 rebounds through nine NBA seasons. As a member of the Delaware 87ers, Okafor is free to sign with any NBA team.
