Luwawu-Cabarrot notched 16 points (4-11 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 6-6 FT), eight rebounds, one assist and one block in 31 minutes during Tuesday's 129-120 win at Boston. Luwawu-Cabarrot posted his second-best scoring output of the season, but he has been extremely inconsistent with his production. The small forward needs to gain more consistency to increase his value, as he has scored less than 10 points in six of his last nine games while also experiencing ups-and-downs in his playing time off the bench.
Luwawu-Cabarrot signed a multi-year contract with the Nets on Friday, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports. The 24-year-old's second 10-day contract expired earlier this week, but he'll officially return to the team with Thursday's trade deadline in the rearview mirror. Luwawu-Cabarrot is averaging 5.2 points and 2.1 rebounds in 15.3 minutes off the bench and is shooting 43.1 percent from three this season.
Luwawu-Cabarrot's second 10-day contract with the Nets expired following Monday's 119-97 win over the Spurs, Keith Smith of Yahoo Sports reports. Luwawu-Cabarrot at least concluded his latest stint with Brooklyn in impressive fashion, scoring 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT) to go with three rebounds, one steal and one block in 25 minutes. Brooklyn will most likely look to re-sign Luwawu-Cabarrot to a contract that keeps him in the fold through the rest of the season, but expect the team to wait until after Thursday's trade deadline to make that official. The Nets are back on the schedule Wednesday versus the Warriors, so Rodions Kurucs and Garrett Temple could pick up some extra minutes on the second unit while Luwawu-Cabarrot is at least temporarily out of the picture.
Luwawu-Cabarrot totaled 13 points (4-7 FG, 3-4 3Pt, 2-3 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one block in 25 minutes during Monday's 119-97 win over the Suns. This was his season high in scoring, and it came after Luwawu-Cabarrot had played 17 minutes in his prior four appearances put together. This is the final day of his second 10-day contract with the Nets, so a decision will need to be made on whether to sign him for the rest of the season or release him.
Luwawu-Cabarrot had five points (1-1 FG, 1-1 3Pt, 2-2 FT), one rebound and one assist in seven minutes during Wednesday's 125-115 win over the Pistons. Luwawu-Cabarrot had been listed as probable due to an illness and played sparingly in this one. He has combined for eight points across 14 minutes during his last three contests, this after scoring in double figures in consecutive matchups versus two of the best defensive teams in the Bucks (Jan. 18) and the 76ers (Jan. 20).
