DENVER (AP) -- Forward Jeff Foote was signed to a 10-day contract on Friday by the New Orleans Hornets, who have been dealing with a series of injuries that have depleted their roster.

Foote, a 7-footer who can also play center, averaged 14.8 points, 8.6 rebounds and 1.1 blocks in 29 games with the Springfield Armor of the NBA Developmental League.
Foote bolsters the Hornets' front-court depth at a time when New Orleans is missing center Emeka Okafor (sore left knee) and forward Carl Landry (left knee sprain).
