David Nwaba is spending time on the Central Coast this week just before he embarks on his fourth NBA season. The former Cal Poly star is getting ready to play for the Brooklyn Nets, his fourth team since breaking into the NBA in 2017. “Hopefully, that becomes home,” said Nwaba, who signed a free agent deal with with the Nets last month. “I just have to go out there and compete and show them that I belong and can win games. Every night I have to go out there and play hard and play my game.”
The Brooklyn Nets have signed guard David Nwaba. Per team policy, terms of the deal were not released. Nwaba (6’4, 219) has appeared in 141 career games (37 starts) across three NBA seasons with Cleveland (2018-19), Chicago (2017-18) and the Los Angeles Lakers (2016-17), registering averages of 7.2 points, 3.9 rebounds and 1.2 assists in 21.5 minutes per game. The 26-year-old saw action in 51 games (14 starts) with the Cavaliers this past season, averaging 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 19.3 minutes per contest. Nwaba also appeared in 40 games for the Lakers’ NBA G League affiliate during the 2016-17 campaign, posting averages of 14.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks in 28.7 minutes per game en route to NBA G League All-Defensive Team and All-Rookie Team honors.
A 15th player under the Cavs’ control is David Nwaba, who could be a restricted free agent. Nwaba was limited to 51 games last season and averaged 6.5 points. A league source said the Cavs were likely to “do David a favor,” which probably means they intend to allow him to become an unrestricted free agent. The most likely scenario for Cleveland to fill those two roster spots is with players on minimum contracts. For a team like the Cavs, which is unlikely to make the playoffs, going into the luxury tax is unnecessary and unwise, which is why using one of their four trade exceptions (including the $3.5 million exception created in the Rodney Hood trade in February) or any significant portion of the $8.5 million midlevel exception seems unlikely.
