  • The Raptors have recalled Pascal Siakam from their D-League affiliate, the Raptors 905, according to the team’s Twitter feed. Siakam is one of several 2016 first-rounders whom have been sent to the D-League this season, as Luke Adams of Hoops Rumors details.

Lakers Sign David Nwaba To Two-Year Deal

5:04pm: The Lakers have officially re-signed Nwaba, the team announced today in a press release.

“We have been impressed by David’s focus and determination, especially on defense,” GM Rob Pelinka said in a statement. “He has a mentality about him that is infectious, and he works hard every day to improve himself. He has brought energy to both our Lakers and D-Fenders games, and has certainly earned his spot on the roster.”

4:19pm: David Nwaba‘s second 10-day contract with the Lakers expired overnight, but the rookie guard won’t have to look for a new NBA home. According to Shams Charania of The Vertical, the Lakers and Nwaba are finalizing a new two-year contract, which will include a team option for 2017/18.

Nwaba, who had been a key contributor for the Lakers’ NBADL affiliate, the Los Angeles D-Fenders, got a call-up to the NBA after the trade deadline. In 10 games with the Lakers so far, the 24-year-old has averaged 3.6 PPG and 2.0 RPG, shooting 48.1% from the floor and contributing solid defense and energy off the bench.

Before he was initially signed by the Lakers, Nwaba was averaging 13.9 PPG and 7.0 RPG in the D-League, and had earned rave reviews for his defense. D-Fenders head coach Coby Karl called the 6’4″ guard “probably the best defender in our league” back in December.

Once Nwaba officially signs his new contract with the Lakers, the team will have 15 players on guaranteed contracts for 2016/17, leaving no open roster spots.

NBA D-League Assignments/Recalls: 3/21/17

Here are Tuesday’s D-League assignments and recalls from around the NBA:

  • Veteran big man Tiago Splitter has been assigned to the D-League as part of his rehab process, the Sixers announced today in a press release. Hip and calf injuries have sidelined Splitter for the entire 2016/17 campaign so far, but there’s a chance he’ll get back on the court by season’s end.
  • The Grizzlies have assigned rookie big man Deyonta Davis to the Iowa Energy, the team announced today in a press release. With just a few weeks left in the 2016/17 season, Davis will be one of the last Grizzlies ever assigned to the Energy, since Memphis is poised to take control of a new NBADL affiliate next season.
  • The Celtics have sent Jordan Mickey and Demetrius Jackson to the D-League, according to the club (Twitter link). The Maine Red Claws don’t play until Thursday, so it’s possible the assignment is just for practice purposes.
  • Rookie forward Cheick Diallo is headed back to the Greensboro Swarm, the Pelicans announced today (via Twitter). With no NBADL affiliate of their own, the Pelicans are sending Diallo to Charlotte’s affiliate using the flexible assignment rule.

Here are the D-League transactions from Monday:

Rockets Sign Troy Williams For Rest Of Season

March 20: According to Scott Agness of Vigilant Sports, the Rockets officially signed Williams for the rest of the 2016/17 campaign today.

March 18: The Rockets plan to sign Troy Williams for the remainder of the season when his current 10-day contract expires, tweets Jonathan Feigen of The Houston Chronicle.

The 6’7″ swingman hasn’t seen any action for Houston since signing that deal on March 10th. He was immediately assigned to the Rockets’ D-League affiliate in Rio Grande Valley, where he has averaged 18.5 points and 5.2 rebounds while shooting 53.2 % from the field (Twitter link).

A 22-year-old undrafted rookie out of Indiana, Williams won a roster spot with the Grizzlies in training camp. He appeared in 24 games for Memphis and started 13 before being waived in late January to open a roster spot for Toney Douglas. Williams averaged 5.3 points and 1.9 rebounds during his time with the Grizzlies.

NBA D-League Assignments/Recalls: 3/19/17

Here are the D-League transactions for Sunday:

  • The Thunder recalled Josh Huestis from the Oklahoma City Blue, the team announced in a press release. Through 28 games with the Blue, Huestis has averaged 14 points and 6.3 rebounds over 32.1 MPG.
  • The Hawks recalled DeAndre’ Bembry from the Salt Lake City Stars, the team announced in a press release. Bembry, 22, has appeared in just one NBA game since February 27, predominantly getting experience in the D-League in his rookie season. With Kent Bazemore out at least one week with a bone bruise, Bembry may receive playing opportunities.

Pelicans Sign Quinn Cook To 10-Day Contract

March 19, 3:02pm: The Pelicans formally announced their signing of Quinn Cook to a 10-day contract (Twitter link).

March 18, 4:34pm: The Pelicans will sign point guard Quinn Cook to a 10-day contract, tweets Marc Stein of

Cook, who completed a 10-day deal with Dallas last week, had been in training camp with New Orleans but was waived before the season started. The former Duke guard made a positive impression on Pelicans GM Dell Demps with his preseason performance, tweets Scott Kushner of The Advocate.

Cook has been playing for the D-League’s Canton Charge since leaving the Mavericks. He got into five games with Dallas, averaging 5.4 points in 15.4 minutes per game.

The Pelicans can fit Cook into the roster opening that occurred when Wayne Selden‘s 10-day contract expired last night. Selden inked a multi-year contract with the Grizzlies earlier today.

Suns Sign Jarell Eddie To 10-Day Deal

MARCH 19, 12:34pm: The signing is official, according to a tweet from the Suns.

MARCH 18 8:56pm: The Suns will sign Jarell Eddie to a 10-day contract, tweets Shams Charania of The Vertical. The 6’7″ forward is currently playing for the Bulls’ Windy City affiliate in the D-League.

Eddie, 24, has previous NBA experience with Washington, where he appeared in 26 games last season but averaged just 5.7 minutes per night. He went through training camp with the Wizards, but was waived in October just before the start of the season.

Eddie went undrafted out of Virginia Tech in 2014 and has spent most of his career in the D-League, playing for Austin as well as Windy City.

The Suns have been carrying an open roster spot since last month’s trade deadline, when they acquired and then waived Jared Sullinger and Mike Scott. Phoenix signed Ronnie Price to fill one of those openings, but left the other one vacant until now.

Mavs Sign Jarrod Uthoff To Second 10-Day Deal

MARCH 19: The Mavericks have officially re-signed Uthoff to another 10-day contract, the team announced in a press release.

MARCH 18: The Mavericks intend to sign big man Jarrod Uthoff to a second 10-day deal, Marc Stein of ESPN tweets.

The 23-year-old forward saw limited action during his first deal, playing limited minutes just twice earlier in the week. He last took the court in Dallas’ Monday evening loss to the Raptors on March 13.

Given that the Mavs are currently in the hunt for the final postseason berth in the Western Conference, it’s unclear if Uthoff will see more than the 2.5 minutes per game he saw the first time around, but even if they don’t aggressively audition the undrafted rookie, the franchise will benefit from the added depth on the roster.

Mavs Sign Manny Harris To New 10-Day Deal

MARCH 19: Harris’ second 10-day deal with the Mavs is now official, per a press release from the team.

MARCH 18: The Mavericks intend to bring journeyman guard Manny Harris back for a second 10-day contract, tweets Marc Stein of ESPN.

The guard saw 7.0 minutes per game in three tastes of action for the playoff hopeful Mavs his first time through.

Considering that the franchise is in the thick of a playoff hunt, it’s unclear how much action the 27-year-old will see in his second deal but he saw 16 minutes in Friday night’s loss to the Sixers.
