David Nwaba drawing interest from Clippers, Jazz, Sixers, Spurs

As teams are looking for players to round out their final rosters, guard David Nwaba is drawing considerable interest from multiple teams. The LA Clippers, Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers, and San Antonio Spurs could all potentially sign the former Cleveland Cavaliers guard before the season starts.

Nwaba has played for the Los Angeles Lakers, Chicago Bulls, and Cavaliers. With the Bulls last season, he averaged 6.5 points and 3.2 rebounds in just over 19 minutes per game.

Nwaba began his career at Santa Monica College, where he won Western State Conference Division Player of the Year. He transferred to Cal Poly for his last three years and received All-Big West Honorable Mention honors.

After going undrafted, Nwaba grinded it out in the D-League. He ended up making the opening night roster for the Lakers, a dream come true for the L.A. native. Since then, he has bounced around the league on short contracts.

Nwaba’s claim to fame is his athleticism and energy. The tireless guard is a tenacious defender of multiple positions, able to hound ball handlers with his natural strength and long arms for periods without any sign of fatigue. He is also good at anticipating passes and shooting the gap to pick off any lazy passes that cross his path.

Unfortunately, he is not as developed offensively. Nwaba struggles from deep, and as his numbers show, is not much of a scorer.

It looks like one of the teams listed above might take a flier on David Nwaba and his indefatigable defensive talent.
