The Charlotte Bobcats have agreed in principle on a six-year contract worth at least $72 million with restricted free agent Emeka Okafor.

Okafor
General manager Rod Higgins confirmed the agreement Tuesday to local reporters, saying that he expects the contract to be completed "in the next few days" after an ESPN.com report said the sides had made significant progress in the past week and were on the verge of a deal.


The agreement with Okafor by far represents Charlotte's biggest expenditure on one player as the club readies for its fifth season. Okafor turned down a five-year deal with a similar $12 million annual average before last season, preferring to wait for restricted free agency.

So 12 million a year for six years for an injury prone player who averages 13 and 10...That was my only issue with him coming to Miami...8 to 10 million per would be more fair.

Barbosa and Williams/Swift while only losing Haslem, Banks, Blount, Wright, Quinn, Powell, Lasme, Anthony and/or Cook would make me the happiest man alive!!!!!:D:D:D

He signs a new deal doesn't mean he won't get traded. But Sean Williams seems to be the better option here. His athleticism + Beasley's will make our front court the most mobile and fastest front court in the league. Sean will fit perfectly in our fast-paced style

Six years, $72 million? They can have him at that price. When I see the crazy money being spent this offseason on second-tier players, I'm glad the Heat aren't biting. I'm glad we're waiting for the real talent to start showing up over the next couple seasons. So long as we're rebuilding, might as well do it right.

I hate it how a lot of you guys liked Emeka and now you don't. I will stand by my statement. I wanted Okafor and am dissapointed to not see him in Miami.

he's not good... he looks like a middle school PG out there and I....yes I...could break his ankles with my right hand tied behind my back. "Rat boy" is not an NBA player... he isnt even a d-leaguer...
