Davis inks with LeBron agent, to meet with Pels

Five-time All-Star Anthony Davis has signed with Klutch Sports, which represents LeBron James. Davis has two years and $52 million left on his contract with the Pelicans.

Bobby Marks ESPN 

There is no salary cap hit with New Orleans waiving Emeka Okafor. The veteran had $0 protection that would have increased to $100K guaranteed if he was on the roster past September 21. The $100K in protection originally had a July trigger date but was amended twice this summer to give the Pelicans flexibility leading up to training camp. The likely backup to Anthony Davis is now former top three pick Jahlil Okafor. The former Duke standout has $50K in protection.
