Free agent David Nwaba has agreed to sign with the Cleveland Cavaliers, league sources told Yahoo Sports.

Nwaba and the Cavaliers are still working on the final details of the deal, league sources said. The Cavaliers have remained in touch with Nwaba since the first day of free agency, recruited him over the past month and met with the 6-foot-4 swingman last week in Las Vegas, sources said.

Nwaba is expected to be a gritty rotation player for a Cavaliers roster aiming to compete in the Eastern Conference playoff race in 2018-19 without LeBron James. There is expected to be a tremendous opportunity for Nwaba in Cleveland, and he can provide starting or reserve minutes for Cavaliers coach Ty Lue.

In two NBA seasons with the Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers, Nwaba, 25, has established himself as a high-energy rotation player. He averaged 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 23.5 minutes in 70 games (21 starts) for Chicago last season.

Rodney Hood ended his restricted free agency by accepting the Cavaliers’ $3.4 million qualifying offer and placing a bet on himself for a big season this year.

He informed the Cavs of his decision today, sources told cleveland.com.

Hood, 25, a gifted, 6-8 forward, will be an unrestricted free agent next summer. He left a multiyear deal from the Cavs worth about $7 million per season on the table by accepting their qualifying offer.

Sources said Hood was seeking a contract for more than $9 million per season from the Cavs. For comparison, the Celtics signed restricted free agent Marcus Smart to a four-year, $52 million deal this summer, and the Bulls matched the four-year $78 million offer sheet Zach LaVine signed with the Kings.
