The young shooting guard is on his way to his third team in as many years.
Davis Nwaba has finalized his one-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers, and it's worth $1.5 million. Nwaba had agreed to sign with the Cavs on Aug. 1, but now it's set in stone.

He should be a fine depth addition for the Cavs as they look towards a new era without LeBron James.
The 25-year-old began his career with the Los Angeles Lakers, appearing in just 20 games. He then took his talents to Chicago, getting in a larger volume of playing time with the Bulls. This past season he appeared in 70 games, logging an average of 7.9 points, 3.4 rebounds and 1.5 assists.

He should be a fine addition coming off the bench for the Cavs.
Nwaba will begin the season behind JR Smith and Jordan Clarkson at the shooting guard position. With the team entering a full rebuild, having a healthy and effective bench will be key for the Cavs going forward.
