Nwaba had played for the Lakers at Summer League, where he has averaged 9.7 points per game shooting 57.1 percent. Nwaba had started last season in the D-League and when he came up to the big club he brought a defensive energy the Lakers needed. He played in 20 games for Los Angeles and averaged 6 points per game and shot 58 percent.
Nwaba is a free agent now and there’s a good chance a team will grab him on a minimum contract. If not, he will start the season in the D-League again and will get a call up at some point.
