Report: Spurs are interested in David Nwaba

It’s not like the Spurs don’t already have enough guards...

NBA: Chicago Bulls at Orlando Magic Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Chicago Bulls recently rescinded their qualifying offer for shooting guard David Nwaba, making him an unrestricted free agent, and the Spurs have been listed as one of several teams interested in the third-year player.

In 70 games last season with the Bulls, Nwaba averaged 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and shot 34.6% from beyond the arc. After going undrafted out of Cal Poly in 2016, he spent most of his rookie season in the G-League with the Los Angeles D-Fenders while also appearing in 20 games for the Lakers.

It’s hard to know how serious the Spurs really are about pursuing Nwaba. Even with the future of Manu Ginobili still up in the air, they already have an abundance guards on the roster in Dejounte Murray, Danny Green, Patty Mills, Marco Belinelli, Bryn Forbes, Derrick White, and Lonnie Walker IV. If Nwaba did somehow make it to the Spurs, it would likely be at the expense of Brandon Paul, whose contract does not become guaranteed until August 1.
