The Bulls rescinded their qualifying offer to David Nwaba Thursday night, a source confirmed, making the spark-plug reserve guard/forward an unrestricted free agent. This has caught the attention of several NBA teams, including the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs, according to NBA.com's David Aldridge. Nwaba could also re-sign with the Bulls.

Nwaba is a capable scorer with solid rebounding skills who has thrived during his few spot starts during the regular season. In his second year in the National Basketball Association he averaged 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 70 games. Originally an undrafted free agent out of Cal Poly, Nwaba also shot a career-high 34.6 percent from 3-point range in 2017-18. Yet his rebounding prowess is excellent for a player at his size, posting 4.7 rebounds in only 23.5 minutes per game last season.

The Bulls now have 12 guaranteed contracts, a non-guaranteed Paul Zipser deal that will be waived and a qualifying offer to Ryan Arcidiacono to make them restricted free agents.
