Al-Farouq Aminu an affordable signing by Pelicans

The Pelicans keep kicking the can down the road when making an ultimate decision on Al-Farouq Aminu, signing him to a one-year, $3.7 million deal after declining his fourth-year rookie option before the season. Aminu's an athletic wing who can't shoot a lick, but he's still young (turning 23 in September) and can defend and rebound. The Pelicans lack small forwards and good perimeter defenders, so keeping Aminu on the cheap was probably a good decision.
