Arinze Onuaku RumorsAll NBA Players
Candace Buckner: Roster for upcoming #Pacers rookie/free agent camp. Camp starts Wednesday, then ORL Summer League: Jarell Eddie, Solomon Hill, Mantas Kalnietis, DeVonte Lacy, Trent Lockett, James Nunnally, Jon Octeus, Arinze Onuaku, Romero Osby, Matt Stainbrook, Myles Turner, Christian Watford, Shayne Whittington, Joe Young
Josh Weir: Team source tells me Arinze Onuaku being signed by T-Wolves, Jorge Gutierrez being signed by Bucks. Great for them, bad timing for Charge.
D League power forward Arinze Onuaku is joining the Wolves in Sacramento this afternoon and will be available if needed tonight against the Kings after the team signed him to a 10-day hardship-exception contract. The Wolves need another big body to finish the season now that injured Gorgui Dieng stayed home from this West Coast trip and Nikola Pekovic is headed for surgery on Wednesday in Charlotte.
Alex Kennedy: Arinze Onuaku is staying in the D-League for now, but has received interest from 6 NBA teams. He’s averaging 18.9 points and 13.3 rebounds.
According to a league source, the Sixers have also been in contact with former Syracuse powe forward Arinze Onuaku. However, the source added that he didn’t know how serious those discussions were. The 6-9, 275-pounder played a total of five games last season with the New Orleans Pelicans and Cleveland Cavaliers. Covington was called up from the Grand Rapids Drive of the NBA Development League team.
Scott Agness: Pacers waived their training camp guys: C.J. Fair, Arinze Onuaku, Chris Singleton, and Adonis Thomas, the team announced.
Shams Charania: Like CJ Fair, Adonis Thomas, Chris Singleton, Pacers signed Arinze Onuaku to non-guaranteed deal for camp competition, source tells RealGM.
Arinze Onuaku has signed with the Pacers according to the RealGM.com Transactions log. The length or terms of the deal are unclear, but it’s most likely a non-guaranteed camp deal. After their recent agreement with Chris Singleton, the Pacers currently have 18 players on their pre-season roster, with 13 of those deals guaranteed.
Arinze Onuaku, the former Syracuse University center, has agreed to play for the Indiana Pacers in the NBA’s summer league in Orlando. Onuaku, who played at Syracuse from 2005-2010, will begin practicing with the Pacers on Tuesday, according to his agent. The Pacers open play in the Orlando summer league on Saturday against the Brooklyn Nets.
Former Cavs forward/center Arinze Onuaku had a week to forget. The Cavs cut him loose during his second 10-day contract. Once returning to the D-League Canton Charge, he suffered an orbital fracture after an elbow to the head. He will miss at least two weeks.
To create the roster spot for Edwards, the team released forward Arinze Onuaku from his second 10-Day contract that was set to expire on March 13th.
Mary Schmitt Boyer/Jodie Valade: #Cavs assign 10-day contract signee Arinze Onuaku to Canton Charge. He’s available to play in Charge’s game this afternoon.
The Cavs signed Onuaku to another 10-day deal that began Tuesday. If they want to keep him beyond that, they’ll have to sign him for the rest of the season. For now, he’s a warm practice body while Anderson Varejao remains out with a back injury. Onuaku played one minute during his first 10 days and is fully aware that’s not likely to change in the next 10 days. His impact comes in practice. “I’ve been playing in Canton for two years, so they know me,” he said. “They know about my strengths and weaknesses. It’s not really about, ‘Let’s see what he can do.’ I just bring my physical presence to practice every day, bring my toughness and hard work. Everything else will work itself out.”
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed forward/center Arinze Onuaku from the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers exclusively owned and operated NBA Development League team, to a second 10-day contract, Cavaliers acting General Manager David Griffin announced today from Cleveland Clinic Courts.
The Cleveland Cavaliers will sign forward Arinze Onuaku to a second 10-day contract, a league source told RealGM. Onuaku’s first 10-day deal expired on Monday. An undrafted, 6-foot-9 forward out of Syracuse, Onuaku worked diligently to earn contracts with the Cavaliers and New Orleans Pelicans. In four games this season, Onuaku has scored three points and grabbed seven rebounds in 26 minutes.
For Onuaku, that hasn’t even been a possibility yet. Still, the big man is hoping he’s making enough of a positive impression in practices and on the bench that he’s brought back for a second 10-day deal — and, if he’s lucky, the rest of the season. “The thing is to come in, work hard and bring some positive energy,” Onuaku said.
The Cleveland Cavaliers have signed forward/center Arinze Onuaku from the Canton Charge, the Cavaliers exclusively owned and operated NBA Development League team, to a 10-day contract, Cavaliers Acting General Manager David Griffin announced today. The signing of Onuaku marks the 20th GATORADE Call-Up of the NBA’s 2013-14 season.
The Canton Charge have signed Arinze Onuaku (6’9”, 275, Syracuse) as a returning player and waived guard/forward Zane Johnson, the team announced today. Onuaku, 26, spent training camp and the beginning of the 2013-14 NBA season with the New Orleans Pelicans, playing in three games and averaging 1.0 point, 2.3 rebounds and 1.0 assist in 8.3 minutes per game.
Williams correctly points out the club could not anticipate second-year power forward Darius Miller suffering a stress fracture in his left foot that required corrective surgery in September, sidelining him indefinitely, nor the toe chip fracture sustained by forward Ryan Anderson that still keeps him off the floor and could for several more weeks. Tuesday moves, he said, have been pondered for the last few weeks. “I don’t make rash decisions,” Williams said. “It’s like everybody always thinks the worst all the time. It’s seven games. There’s no need for all that. We’re going to try to tweak our roster as best we can to try to get better. That’s the bottom line.”
The New Orleans Pelicans announced today that the team has signed Lou Amundson and Josh Childress, and has waived Lance Thomas and Arinze Onuaku. Per club policy, terms of the contracts were not released.
On Thursday, the Pelicans’ workout group included forwards Anthony Davis, Jason Smith, Arinze Onuaku, Darius Miller and Lance Thomas, guards Austin Rivers, Brian Roberts, rookie center Jeff Withey and Evans. “Its been great that all of us have been willing to sacrifice and work together as a team,’’ Evans said. “Anytime guys want to come out and do that, that’s a good start. We’re looking to make a push to the playoffs and this is where it’s got to start in the offseason.’’
