Nwaba to have deal guaranteed by Bulls

Free agent David Nwaba and the Cavaliers have mutual interest.

The Chicago Bulls will guarantee the contract of guard David Nwaba for the remainder of the season, according to a report from ESPN.

Sunday is the deadline for teams to pick up the contracts of non-guaranteed players for the season or waive them.

Nwaba is averaging 7.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 28 games with the Bulls. He has played a total of 48 games in his two-year NBA career, having spent last season with the Los Angeles Lakers.

“He’s been a revelation for the Bulls and undoubtedly will be one of the intriguing restricted free agents on market this summer,” ESPN wrote.

Nwaba, 24, is 6-foot-6 and went undrafted out of Cal Poly in 2016.
