Mark Medina: A lot of work for David Nwaba awaits, but he says he’s “ahead of schedule” with Lakers signing him bit.ly/2plWMfe
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard David Nwaba to a multi-year contract, it was announced today by General Manager Rob Pelinka. Per team policy, terms of the agreement were not released.
“We have been impressed by David’s focus and determination, especially on defense,” said Pelinka. “He has a mentality about him that is infectious, and he works hard every day to improve himself. He has brought energy to both our Lakers and D-Fenders games, and has certainly earned his spot on the roster.”
Shams Charania: The Los Angeles Lakers and guard David Nwaba are finalizing a two-year deal, league sources tell @The Vertical. Team option for next season.
Glushon Sports Management has signed free-agent NBA guard Greivis Vásquez and Los Angeles Lakers guard David Nwaba. Jason Glushon is representing the players. Vásquez was formerly represented by Octagon, and Nwaba was previously without representation.
The Los Angeles Lakers have signed guard David Nwaba to a second 10-day contract, it was announced today by General Manager Rob Pelinka.
David Nwaba, who signed a 10-day contract with the Lakers last week, was encouraged by Walton’s recent compliments. But when the Lakers mull whether to grant Nwaba a second 10-day contract on Friday, the variables go beyond Walton liking Nwaba’s defense. “We want to look at a couple of people before the season ends,” Walton said. “Some of them aren’t available right now. (Nwaba’s) been good. But we have to decide if we want to wait or look at someone else.”
“Sometimes guys don’t really believe in me. It’s your job to prove them wrong,” Nwaba said. “I can do more. I have high expectations for myself. Getting to those expectations is the ultimate goal.”
Mark Medina: Luke Walton likes @dnwaba0’s play thus far. No decision made if Lakers will give him another 10-day, but Luke said he’s earned it
Adam Johnson: Lakers make David Nwaba call-up official. He is the 24th call-up in D-Fenders history.
Chris Reichert: The Los Angeles Lakers have officially signed David Nwaba from the D-Fenders to 10-day deal. He’s the 31st D-League call up this year

A source confirmed that Boston was in discussions with the Pacers about George, however, and indicated that the team would have interest in reviving the talks, but is unsure where the Pacers stand in the process.
A source said the Timberwolves turned down a slightly lesser offer in a deal for Butler last season that included LaVine and Dunn. Of course, LaVine was still healthy then and Dunn was a much-hyped prospect rather than a second-year guard whose potential had taken a mild hit.
League sources said Knicks president Phil Jackson’s trade requests to at least two teams were beyond extreme and that they may have just been a ploy to motivate Porzingis, the 7-foot-3 Latvian who seemed to anger Jackson by skipping an end-of-season exit interview.
Running counter to that type of forthcomingness is Kristaps Porzingis’ decision to skip his exit meeting, which Oakley told the Daily News was the wrong move. It especially annoys Oakley that Porzingis had the audacity to pull that off as a second-year player with a 63-101 record on his resume
“He’s wrong for that. You can’t do that,” Oakley told the News on Friday, two days before his debut as a player/coach with Ice Cube’s Big3 League at Barclays Center. “Not being two years in the league and you’ve been on the team two years and you won 32 games and 31 games. I mean, you don’t do that. Especially when you’re in town (at the same time the meeting was supposed to take place). You don’t do that. That’s wrong.”
“(Porzingis) should tell (Jackson) himself. That’s why you got a mouth,” Oakley said. “All they can do is trade you or keep you. But you got to realize that you have an opinion too. You can’t worry about what they will do. But all you can do is tell them to respect you. When they disrespect you, you have a right to say something to them. If you disrespect them, they have a right to say something to you. You can’t be sensitive. It’s a two-way street.”
