Former Mount St. Joseph basketball standout Henry Sims has signed a 10-day contract with the New Orleans Hornets.
Sims, who went undrafted after a four-year career at Georgetown, was playing in the NBA D-League for the Erie Bayhawks before signing with the Hornets.
He averaged 17.1 points, 9 rebounds and 1.6 blocked shots for the Bayhawks and was named to the D-League All-Star Game. The Hornets lost center/forward Jason Smith for the season with a torn labrum, which prompted the signing for Sims.
