Nwaba officially signed by Cavs; roster at 13

Former Bulls guard David Nwaba has officially signed with the Cavaliers.

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.

    i just hope that lue does not use nwaba in the frontcourt with an exaggerated small ball lineup to get there many two guards playing tine. smith, korver, clarkson, hood, nwaba perhaps three guard or even the dreadful four guard alignment which lue has been known to use.
