Nwaba, who was claimed off waivers from the Lakers in July, has shown improvement in his second NBA season, averaging 7.6 points and 4.7 rebounds in 28 games. He is making $1,312,611 this season and will be a restricted free agent this summer.
Nwaba is so secure in his spot in Chicago’s rotation that he didn’t realize that 4pm today is the deadline to waive players before their contracts become fully guaranteed, relays K.C. Johnson of The Chicago Tribune.
“I’m not really concerned about that. I actually didn’t even know it was Sunday,” Nwaba said. “I just work hard, compete and see what I can do to help teams win games.”
