Los Angeles Lakers signing David Nwaba to two-year deal

David Nwaba- LA Local Earns 10 Day Contract

The Los Angeles Lakers signed guard David Nwaba to a multiyear deal following two 10-day contract stints with the Purple and Gold, the team announced Tuesday.

Nwaba's second 10-day contract with the Lakers expired Tuesday, and National Basketball Association rules prevent teams from signing players to three consecutive 10-day contracts.

In 10 games with the Lakers this season, Nwaba has averaged about 15 minutes with 3.6 points and 2 rebounds a night, while shooting just under 50 percent.

This isn't to paint Nwaba as some National Basketball Association defensive player of the year candidate, but he did demonstrate value for the Lakers and it will be interesting to see what he does over the rest of the season and in Las Vegas Summer League, as well as on their training camp roster. He has been the Lakers' best perimeter defender - not a hard bar to reach but a notable one nonetheless. According to NBA.com's lineup data, the Lakers have posted a defensive rating of 104.4 with Nwaba on the floor-which compares favorably to the team's season-long mark of 110.9. Both Luke Walton and D'Angelo Russell had publicly complimented the Cal Poly product and spoken about his high chances of sticking in the league. But as he's proven in his time with the Lakers, Nwaba is not looking to stop now that he's reached some success.
