Hornets sign Foote to 10-day deal
Forward Jeff Foote was signed to a 10-day contract on Friday by
the New Orleans Hornets, who have been dealing with a series of
injuries that have depleted their roster.
Foote, a 7-footer who can also play center, averaged 14.8
points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 29 games with the
Springfield Armor of the NBA Developmental League.
Foote bolsters the Hornets’ front-court depth at a time when New
Orleans is missing center Emeka Okafor (sore left knee) and forward
Carl Landry (left knee sprain).
