The Pelicans are filling out the end of their bench and bolstering their frontcourt depth around Anthony Davis. ESPN.com’s Marc Stein reports that New Orleans is finalizing a one-year minimum deal with veteran center Kendrick Perkins:

This is strictly a signing for the locker-room presence. Perkins has proven over the last few years that he doesn’t have much left in the tank beyond a few hard fouls, and he has Omer Asik and Alexis Ajinca ahead of him in the rotation in New Orleans.
