Nwaba signs multi-year contract with the Lakers

LOS ANGELES, Calif. - David Nwaba is staying put with the Los Angeles Lakers.

The 2016 Cal Poly graduate signed a two-year contract that keeps him with the Lakers for the rest of the season and LA has a team option for next season.

Nwaba is the only Cal Poly Mustangs player to ever play in the NBA. His second 10-day contract was set to expire when he signed the new deal.

In 10 games with the Lakers, Nwaba has played over 14 minutes per game, averaging 3.6 points and two rebounds. He started two games.

Nwaba spent most of the year with the Los Angeles D-Fenders, which is the Lakers NBA Development League affiliate.

The 6-foot-4 guard impressed the Lakers with his athleticism and he is an excellent defender.

In 2014 Nwaba led the Mustangs to the first and only NCAA Tournament appearance.
