After reaching an agreement with former Detroit Pistons guard Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, the Lakers had to clear cap space in order to sign him.

The Chicago Bulls have claimed free agent David Nwaba off waivers, league sources told The Vertical.

The Bulls, however, claimed Nwaba on Friday afternoon as announced by the National Basketball Association league office. In 20 games and two starts with Los Angeles, Nwaba averaged 6.0 points and 3.1 rebounds per game.

The Cal Poly-San Luis Obispo product signed the first of two 10-day contracts on February 28, posting 14.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 1.4 steals and 1.0 blocks through 30 starts in 39 games with the Lakers' affiliate Los Angeles D-Fenders.

Undrafted following his Cal Poly (2013-16) career, Nwaba signed with the Lakers' NBA Developmental League affiliate - the Los Angeles D-Fenders - in November 2016.

Nwaba is the first player in the Cal Poly program's 23-year Division I era to have signed with and appeared for an National Basketball Association franchise. In three games this summer he averaged 9.7 points and 6.3 rebounds while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor.
