Emeka Okafor: Pursuing NBA comeback
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Okafor's agent, Jeff Schwartz, confirmed Monday that the center hopes to return to the NBA in December or January, ESPN.com's Jackie MacMullan reports.

Okafor, who will turn 34 in September, last appeared in the league during the 2012-13 season with the Wizards, averaging 9.7 points, 8.8 rebounds, 1.2 assists and 1.0 block across 26.0 minutes per game. After being traded to the Suns prior to the following season, Okafor went on to miss the entire year while recovering from a herniated disc in his neck. Schwartz said that Okafor has been training for a comeback and has improved his conditioning, but is probably "five or six months away" from being ready to play again. With three seasons away from the game, it's uncertain if Okafor can reemerge as the solid defensive presence he was prior to succumbing to the neck injury. Okafor said he's only interested in returning to a contending team, so his market could be limited once he decides to work out for NBA suitors.
