Report: Cavs, Heat covet Emeka Okafor; won't play till midseason
Miami and Cleveland among teams looking to add rim protector, but neck injury will keep big man out a few months longer.
ESPN.com reports former Bobcats, Hornets, and Wizards big man Emeka Okafor is unlikely to be ready to play before midseason after recovering from a severe neck injury, but teams still are lining up for his services, including the Cavaliers and Heat.
Okafor is a rim protector, a quality in high demand. Not only are few available, but this year's free agency crop was notoriously low on them.
The Cavs are obviously loading up on veterans, adding Mike Miller and James Jones, and their interest in Ray Allen. Okafor would provide them with a big man off the bench and allow Tristan Thompson to play power forward. For Miami, he could conceivably start ahead of Chris Andersen, helping Chris Bosh return to his more natural position of power forward.
