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.
