The Brooklyn Nets have signed veteran shooting guard David Nwaba, thus completing their new-look roster going into the 2019-2020 season.
Moves continue to be made by the Brooklyn Nets.
According to Shams Charania of The Athletic, the Nets have signed veteran shooting guard David Nwaba. It’s a two-year deal, which completes Brooklyn’s new-look roster.

Nwaba, 26, is a former undrafted free agent out of California Polytechnical Institute.
Entering his fourth year in the NBA, this will be Nwaba’s fourth team. After spending time with the then-Los Angeles D-Fenders of the then-D League, Nwaba played for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2017. Nwaba returned to the G League thereafter before linking up with the Chicago Bulls in the 2017-18 season and finally, the Cleveland Cavaliers this past year.
Through 51 games last year, Nwaba averaged 6.5 points, 3.2 rebounds, and 1.1 assists. He did this all while shooting 48.1% from the field and 32% from behind the arc.
For his career, Nwaba has averaged 7.2 points, 3.9 rebounds, and 1.2 assists on 49% from the field and 32.6% from three.
Nwaba should add some depth at shooting guard for the Nets. Brooklyn already has Caris LeVert and Garrett Temple at the position as well.
This signing pales in comparison to some of the moves the Nets made earlier this summer. They signed superstar forward Kevin Durant to a four-year, $164 million deal. Brooklyn also signed superstar point guard Kyrie Irving to a four-year, $141 million deal and center DeAndre Jordan to a four-year, $40 million deal.
With all that said, the Nets should have one of the better rosters in the Eastern Conference for years to come.
