David Nwaba
The Los Angeles Lakers have officially signed David Nwaba (193-G-93, college: Cal Poly - SLO) to a 10 day contract. Nwaba, who has been playing for the Lakers D-League affiliate (D-Fenders) attended the first session of the Eurobasket Summer League in Las Vegas. He averaged 25 points, 7 rebounds, 5 assists, and 4 steals during his game action at the Summer League. Congrats to David and we wish him the best in his pursuits of a successful NBA Career. Below is a article written by Laker Nation on the signing of David Nwaba

Following the decision to release veteran point guard Jose Calderon, the Lakers successfully opened up a roster spot that they could use to try out different players for the rest of the season. It didn't take long to fill the opening as Luke Walton's squad signed David Nwaba of the Los Angeles D-Fenders to a 10-day contract.

Nwaba is not a name that is well known to most fans, but he has really turned heads during his time in the D-League especially because of his defense. Walton noted that getting someone like Nwaba is important for the identity of the Lakers according to Shahan Ahmed of NBC LA:

For Nwaba, a Los Angeles native, this call-up is like a dream come true via Ahmed:

The Lakers have been a terrible defensive team this year, and one of the main reasons why is a lack of a true perimeter stopper. Jordan Clarkson has been talked about as someone who has the potential to become that, as has rookie Brandon Ingram, but neither are close to that level right now.

Nwaba understands that the defensive end is his calling card. In 29 games in the D-League, Nwaba has averaged 13.9 points, 7.0 rebounds, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 blocks. Over the last 10 contests, those averages have risen to 21.1 points, 8.9 rebounds, 1.7 steals, and 1.3 blocks. The rebounds and blocks are especially impressive considering he is only 6'4.

Walton is looking to build a defensive identity for the Lakers as the team will never be successful if they can't get stops. Nwaba fits that bill and will now get the chance to prove he can handle an NBA workload.
