Hornets sign Henry Sims

Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE

Per the Times-Picayune:

As expected, the New Orleans Hornets announced Sunday they have signed former Georgetown C/F Henry Sims to a 10-day contract to fill the void caused by forward Jason Smith's season-ending shoulder injury.

Sims, 6 feet 10, 245 pounds, started 36 games this season for the Erie BayHawks of the NBA Development League and averaged 17.1 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 1.6 blocks in 32.8 minutes per game. Sims was selected as an NBA D-League All-Star last month and is coming off a 21-point, 12- rebound performance against the Maine Red Claws on March 1.

Sims played in the 2012 NBA Summer League with the Chicago Bulls. He signed with the New York Knicks but was released at the end of the preseason.

Sims was scheduled to participate in his first practice Sunday morning at the Alario Center and it's undetermined at this point if he will play in Monday night's game against the Orlando Magic.
