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 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).
Luwawu-Cabarrot (illness) is available for Wednesday's game against the Pistons.
As expected, Luwawu-Cabarrot will take the court Wednesday after entering the day with a probable tag due to an undisclosed illness. He signed a second 10-day contract with the Nets over the weekend but has played just seven minutes combined over his last two games.
Luwawu-Cabarrot is probable for Wednesday's game against Detroit due to illness, Chris Milholen of Nets Daily reports.
Luwawu-Cabarrot signed a second 10-day contract with the Nets on Saturday, though he's logged a total of just seven minutes over his last two contests. Barring a last-minute setback, he should be available off the bench for Wednesday's clash.
Luwawu-Cabarrot signed a second 10-day contract with the Nets on Saturday, Alex Schiffer of The Athletic reports.
Luwawu-Cabarrot's new deal will keep him with the Nets through Feb 3. Afterward, the team will either have to sign him to a deal that would last for the remainder of the year or release him and let the French forward test the waters elsewhere. Luwawu-Cabarrot's played well in his first season with Brooklyn and is averaging 5.0 points and 2.3 rebounds while drilling 38.6 percent of his threes in 16.5 minutes per game on the year.
Luwawu-Cabarrot is slated to sign a 10-day contract with the Nets, Michael Scotto of The Athletic reports.
Since Luwawu-Cabarrot is nearing the 45-day limit allowed at the NBA level under the conditions of his two-way deal, Brooklyn has decided to sign him to a 10-day contract to keep in the fold a little while longer. It's unclear if he'll eventually be signed to a rest-of-season contract, though there's a good chance of that happening since Luwawu-Cabbarot has held a rotational role for the better part of the past two months. The Frenchman is averaging 4.8 points and 2.4 rebounds in 17.2 minutes per game this season.
Luwawu-Cabarrot finished with two points (1-3 FG, 0-2 3Pt), five rebounds and one steal in 18 minutes Tuesday in the Nets' 118-107 loss to the Jazz.
The two-way player has emerged as a regular member of coach Kenny Atkinson's rotation since mid-December, appearing in each of the Nets' last 15 games and playing between eight and 26 minutes. Playing time on the wing will become slightly more scarce when Garrett Temple (knee) is ready to play again, but Luwawu-Cabarrot might have already done enough to secure a spot on the second unit. As Alex Schiffer of The Athletic notes, Luwawu-Cabarrot has only about a week left before reaching the 45-day maximum that two-way players can spend at the NBA level, but he's made a case for earning a standard contract thanks to his quality defense and penchant for timely buckets.
Luwawu-Cabarrot contributed eight points (3-6 FG, 0-2 3Pt, 2-2 FT), five rebounds, one assist and one steal in 23 minutes off the bench Sunday in the Nets' 109-89 win over the 76ers.
After playing just six minutes in total with the Nets over the club's first 24 contests, Luwawu-Cabarrot has now logged double-digit minutes in both of the past two games. As a two-way player, Luwawu-Cabarrot can only spend up to 45 days in the NBA before the Nets would have to convert his contract to a standard deal, so his time in the rotation will likely have a shelf life. Luwawu-Cabarrot's time on the second unit could come to an end as soon as Tuesday in New Orleans, as fellow wing Caris LeVert (thumb) is traveling with the Nets and could be available to play in the contest.
Luwawu-Cabbarot generated 26 points (10-20 FG, 5-10 3Pt, 1-1 FT), three steals, two assists, a rebound and a block in 35 minutes Friday against Santa Cruz.
Though Luwawu-Cabarrot continued his scoring barrage, he also turned the ball over six times and finished with a minus-three net rating. The French swingman's established himself as one of the best bucket getters in the G-League, but may be prohibited from obtaining a steady role in the NBA due to the lack of a consistent three-point shot and up-and-down defensive effort.
Luwawu-Cabarrot accounted for 32 points (13-30 FG, 1-11 3Pt, 3-3 FT), seven rebounds, four assists and a steal in Tuesday's loss to the Herd.
Although impressive, Luwawu-Cabarrot's contributions weren't enough to get Long Island their second win of the year. Though he's been unable to find a role for Brooklyn, Luwawu-Cabarrot's G-League contributions may be too impressive for him to remain in the minor leagues. He's now scored 67 total points and grabbed 22 rebounds over his past two games.
Luwawu-Cabarrot amassed 35 points (14-20 FG, 4-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), 15 rebounds, seven assists, a steal and a block across 41 minutes in Friday's loss to Canton.
Luwawu-Cabarrot dominated the Charge, generating season highs across the board in a close loss. Perhaps most impressive was his deadly three-point stroke, as his lack of consistency in his long-range game has prevented Luwawu-Cabarrot from achieving success on the NBA level. Through three G-League games this year, he's averaging 22.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 3.3 assists while shooting 57.1 percent from the floor and 36.8 percent from three in 31.0 minutes.
Luwawu-Cabarrot (personal) supplied 15 points (5-11 FG, 1-6 3Pt, 3-4 FT), three rebounds, one assist and one steal in 26 minutes during Sunday's loss to Windy City.
Luwawu-Cabbarot, who was absent from Wednesday's game due to a personal issue, returned to the court and supplied a double-figure scoring effort. He's seen action in just two games this season, struggling mightily with his three-point shot in both. On the season, Luwawu-Cabarrot's averaging 15.5 points, 3.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists while shooting 45.5 percent from the field, 23.1 percent from three and 71.4 percent from the line in 26.2 minutes.

Last season, he spent time between Chicago and Oklahoma City, averaging 11.3 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.4 assists when seeing at least 24 minutes. If he secures a final roster spot with Cleveland, he may see a similar role to what he's used to.

The third-year guard continues to surge as the season comes to a close, with Sunday's double-digit scoring effort versus his old squad serving as his fourth straight. Luwawu-Cabarrot isn't necessarily getting it done with efficiency -- he's shot 41.7 percent or lower in three straight -- but a solid allotment off the bench is affording him enough opportunity to churn out strong returns in both scoring and rebounding.
