One day after earning head coach Tyronn Lue’s praise, David Nwaba will be held out of the Cleveland Cavaliers’ second preseason game against the Boston Celtics. Nwaba, who Lue declared part of his rotation despite a glut of guards, is nursing a groin injury. He tweaked it “a little bit” in practice recently. The 25-year-old free agent addition will join George Hill, Kyle Korver, Kevin Love and Tristan Thompson on the sidelines Saturday night.
Storyline: David Nwaba Injury
Former Los Angeles teammate Larry Nance Jr. put in a good word for Nwaba. But it wasn’t necessary. The Cavs’ front office showed interest in Nwaba early in free agency and recruited him hard after the Bulls reversed course. After meeting with Nwaba in Las Vegas at the end of July, the Cavs got an agreement from him, edging out the Indiana Pacers, who also showed interest. “Indiana wanted me for two years, but Cleveland seemed like a better fit,” Nwaba said. “Young guys as well as veterans on this team so I thought it was a perfect fit and knew I was going to get my opportunity here.”
David Nwaba admits this was a stressful summer. After initially believing he had finally found his home in Chicago, he thinks things worked out even better, landing in a place that’s a “perfect fit” for him. “Thought I was going to stay there for years to come,” Nwaba said when asked about his feelings toward the Bulls. “But it’s a business. It all worked out, ended up still living the dream of playing in the NBA. Think this is a good opportunity here and just moved past it.”
