Bulls rescind qualifying offer to David Nwaba, making him an unrestricted free agent

The Chicago Bulls have, for now, changed their mind on the qualifying offer they gave youngster David Nwaba.

Nwaba entered the offseason as a restricted free agent, but the Bulls have now allowed him to become an unrestricted free agent. The flurry of activity is a clear sign the Bulls are trying to finalize another move, nearly certainly to shore up the wing position or to absorb a bad contract with an asset attached.

The Bulls have been mostly quiet in free agency, but it sounds like David Nwaba could be leaving. One source said there's strong internal belief another move will be finalized. In his second year in the National Basketball Association he averaged 7.9 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 70 games.

While there is no clear frontrunner, the Bulls could still re-sign him, but likely prefer to stay out of a bidding war after matching the Sacramento Kings' offer sheet for Zach LaVine for a hefty $78 million over four years.

Nwaba has the athletic stuff down pat as a thriving finisher at the basket, but his shooting is still suspect, making only 34.6 percent of his shots from deep (shot an average of 0.6 per game) and 65.5 percent from the foul line.
