Bulls Rescind QO For David Nwaba

The Bulls have rescinded their qualifying offer for David Nwaba, tweets Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports. The second-year guard will now be an unrestricted free agent.

Nwaba was productive in his lone season with the Bulls, starting 21 of 70 games and averaging 7.9 points and 4.7 rebounds per night. Chicago claimed him off waivers last summer after he spent his rookie season with the Lakers.

The unrestricted status should improve the offers for Nwaba, who has reportedly already received a “barrage” of interest from around the league. Nwaba ranks 42nd on our list of the Top 50 Free Agents of 2018.

Friday is the deadline for teams to rescind qualifying offers for NBA and two-way restricted free agents. Any QOs kept active after tomorrow cannot be withdrawn for the remainder of the summer without the player’s consent.

      I think there’s a chess play here. Freeing up cap space to either go after Hood, possibly Jabari OR to take on a bad contract to acquire draft pick(s), perhaps Melo or someone like that.

    First Kilpatrick, now Nwaba, something bigger happening here. Clearing up more cap space for a run at Hood or Parker, OR taking on a bad contract to eventually buy out but also acquire draft pick(s) maybe Melo or Deng.

    Tired of hearing about this so-called “barrage” of interest with no news backing it up. The Bulls don’t seem worried.

      A defensive player with a small contract to fill out a roster spot on the bench for a non-contender. Several teams could add him.

    Deng, Noah, Melo, Mozgov. A handful of 1st rounds while getting rid of Asik and Robin Lopez. Then buying out said players. Win-win for everyone.

    He’s a decent player, but he’s nothing to write home about. I don’t understand the outrage (over possibly not signing him) or obsession with this guy. He isn’t making or breaking he franchise. He’s a bench player. Hard worker? Yes. Decent player? Yes. And that’s it. If they can dump him to free up cap space for a run at a star player, wouldn’t that make much more sense???

      Yes. I could see him having much more value on a contending team, not so much for the Bulls. I’d rather see Hutchison get those minutes and see if he’s a legit NBA talent.

  6. Agree he is not that good, cannot see he makes any difference to Chicago. You can find a dozen a dime like him, when you are not that talented then you work hard on defence & hustle, anyone can do that, is the only way to be in the league, so this is a good move for Chicago.

    Love this player and think he will be good if given the chance. Orlando should grab him. I think he would be a great fit.
