“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.”
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.
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.”
