 NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A person familiar with the situation says forward Al-Farouq Aminu has agreed to a 1-year extension with the New Orleans Pelicans.
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Saturday because NBA rules prevent the deal from becoming official until July 10.
The extension was first reported by the Times-Picayune, which said the deal was for $3.7 million.
The 6-foot-9 Aminu, heading into his fourth NBA season, started 71 games last year. He averaged career highs of 7.3 points and 7.7 rebounds per game, with season-highs of 20 rebounds and 18 points.
Aminu was drafted eighth overall out of Wake Forest in 2010 by the Los Angeles Clippers. He came to New Orleans as part of a 2011 trade that sent Chris Paul to the Clippers.
