2018 Fantasy Outlook
After latching on with the Lakers as an undrafted free agent in 2016, Nwaba took his talents to Chicago for his second NBA season. He wound up being a significant member of the rotation and averaged 23.5 minutes across 70 games (21 starts). While his averages of 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists were all career highs, they weren't enough to give him utility in the bulk of Fantasy leagues. Nwaba's game focuses mainly on his defense, which means his value in real basketball terms is much higher than in the Fantasy realm. Despite joining a Cleveland team without LeBron James, Nwaba will still have to battle for a depth role on the wing. Even if he does see significant minutes, his defensive focus should make him an avoidable player on draft day. Read Past Outlooks

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Nwaba spent the majority of the 2016-17 season with the Los Angeles D-Fenders of the D-League, before inking a 10-day contract with the Lakers in February. After impressing during that short stint, he eventually signed a contract for the rest of the season. Nwaba ended the year averaging 6.0 points and 3.2 rebounds across 19.9 minutes, as he was mainly regarded for his ability on the defensive side of the ball. After being let go by the Lakers this offseason, the Bulls swooped in and picked him off waivers. Nwaba will spend training camp battling for a roster spot, though if he does ultimately make the team, he could get some solid run with Chicago going through a rebuild. Still, he shot just 20 percent from the three-point line last season and still profiles as more of a defender than anything, limiting his Fantasy impact even with a decent sized workload.
