Kris Dunn wrapped up his rookie season with 10 points and 16 assists, seeing 32 minutes in his start against the Rockets on Wednesday.
He shot just 5-for-13 from the floor but was otherwise impressive in this one, chipping in one steal, two blocks and two boards to his double-double. There’s no denying Dunn’s potential, but his rookie season exposed that he simply wasn’t as ready as advertised coming out of Providence. He averaged just 17 minutes per game as Ricky Rubio‘s backup, and generally struggled to carve out additional minutes. He averaged 3.8 points, 2.1 boards, 2.4 assists and one steal per game on 37.7% shooting from the field, but the Wolves still seem enamored with his upside heading into the offseason.
