Hornets Sign Jeff Foote To 10-Day Contract

The Hornets have signed center Jeff Foote to a 10-day contract, according to Jim Eichenhofer of Hornets.com (via Twitter). Foote will replace Solomon Jones on the roster, after New Orleans decided not to sign Jones for the rest of the season when his second 10-day deal expired.

Foote, 24, was a training camp invitee for the Trail Blazers in December, but didn't make the team. The former Cornell big man has spent the season playing for the D-League's Springfield Armor, averaging 14.8 PPG and 8.6 RPG in 29 games.

David Pick of Eurobasket.com first reported that the Hornets would bring Foote aboard, while John Reid of the New Orleans Times-Picayune added that it would be a 10-day signing.
