WEDNESDAY, 10:16pm: The Pelicans have agreed to sign Arinze Onuaku to a two-year deal, tweets Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports.  The first year of the deal is unguaranteed and the second is a team option. 

The Syracuse product has never played in the NBA, but does have 43 D-League games under his belt.  He's averaged 11.7 points and 8.8 rebounds per game for his career in the D-League, which included five games in 2010/11 and a 38 games last season which were good enough to earn him an appointment to the league's 2013 All-Star team.  Onuaku will have to prove he belongs in training camp to have a shot to stick on the New Orleans roster.

The Pelicans have had a busy Wednesday night.  News broke earlier that the team had inked Lance Thomas to a two-year deal which contained a partial guarantee for the first year and a team option for the second.
