Chicago Bulls sophomore David Nwaba has had a good season in the Windy City.
The young guard has made significant progress in his advanced numbers since his first season with the Los Angeles Lakers a year ago.
Nwaba, 24, is a significant role player for the Bulls and is averaging 7.6 points, 4.7 rebounds, and 1.3 assists per game. Nwaba’s net rating and box plus/minus also improved year-over-year.
Thanks to his strong play, Nwaba will have his 2017-18 contract guaranteed. That’s according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Nwaba will grab $1.3 million for this season, then be free to sign as a free agent in the summer.
