18-year old David Okwera has signed with Melbourne United for the next two seasons, starting as a Development Player in NBL22, before being promoted to a roster spot in NBL23.
The 210cm forward is known for his length and athleticism, can protect the rim and defend at a highly competitive level. The big-man can also get it done on the offensive end of the floor, with his strengths residing in the paint and around the rim.
Originally from Western Australian, Okwera moved to Melbourne a few years ago, where he played in the NBL1 at Kilsyth before he was selected for the NBA Global Academy.
After receiving close to 20 NCAA D1 offers, Okwera made the decision to forgo the collegiate path and turn professional. Okwera has also represented Australia on multiple occasions, most recently for the national Under 19 side at the U19 FIBA World Cup.
