In a move that everyone who follows Cleveland pro basketball suspected was coming, the Cavaliers have officially signed free-agent guard David Nwaba, per a team news release.
The deal is for one year and at the league minimum, according to sources.
Nwaba is a 6-foot-4 guard and appeared in 70 games for the Chicago Bulls last season. He averaged 7.9 points and 4.7 rebounds, shooting nearly 48 percent from the field, including 35 percent on 3-pointers.
He will come to training camp competing for a starting spot at shooting guard, according to a team source. The Cavs are just that big on Nwaba — as they were in touch with him from the start of free agency, following the Bulls’ decision to rescind a qualifying offer.
The Cavs now have 13 guaranteed contracts on the roster, with a maximum allowable of 15. They are expected to re-sign small forward Rodney Hood, a restricted free agent, between now and the start of the season.
Training camp for the four-time defending Eastern Conference champions is scheduled to begin Sept. 25 at their practice facility in Independence, Ohio.
Nwaba will wear No. 12.
