Emeka Okafor has received interest from the Cleveland Cavaliers and Miami Heat among roughly half of the NBA's teams, according to sources.

Okafor, however, is unlikely to sign with a team until midseason as he continues to heal from a herniated disk.

"He'll be in high demand when he's back," one source said.

Okafor suffered his injury during preseason last year and was subsequently dealt from the Washington Wizards to the Phoenix Suns.
