HoopsHype Arinze Onuaku rumors
The Canton Charge have signed Arinze Onuaku (6’9”, 275, Syracuse) as a returning player and waived guard/forward Zane Johnson, the team announced today.

Williams correctly points out the club could not anticipate second-year power forward Darius Miller suffering a stress fracture in his left foot that required corrective surgery in September, sidelining him indefinitely, nor the toe chip fracture sustained by forward Ryan Anderson that still keeps him off the floor and could for several more weeks. Tuesday moves, he said, have been pondered for the last few weeks. "I don't make rash decisions," Williams said. "It's like everybody always thinks the worst all the time. It's seven games. There's no need for all that. We're going to try to tweak our roster as best we can to try to get better. That's the bottom line." New Orleans Times-Picayune
On Thursday, the Pelicans' workout group included forwards Anthony Davis, Jason Smith, Arinze Onuaku, Darius Miller and Lance Thomas, guards Austin Rivers, Brian Roberts, rookie center Jeff Withey and Evans. ``Its been great that all of us have been willing to sacrifice and work together as a team,’’ Evans said. ``Anytime guys want to come out and do that, that’s a good start. We’re looking to make a push to the playoffs and this is where it’s got to start in the offseason.’’ New Orleans Times-Picayune
