Kendrick Nunn scored 13 points with two rebounds, seven assists and three steals on 6-of-12 shooting as the Miami Heat defeated the Charlotte Hornets 108-94 on Wednesday.
Kendrick Nunn started and played 26 minutes for the Heat as Goran Dragic, Jimmy Butler and Justise Winslow sat out Wednesday’s preseason game against the Hornets. Kendrick Nunn is expected to make the roster after the Miami Heat guaranteed his contract. However, Nunn will not play enough minutes to be fantasy-relevant this season. Keep an eye on him in dynasty leagues as he has the work ethic and could grow with the Heat's proven track record of great player development.

The Heat intend to keep guard Kendrick Nunn on the final roster, according to Khobi Price of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
Nunn went undrafted out of Oakland in 2018 and spent last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League. He impressed during Summer-League play and has shown flashes during training camp. Nunn has been an excellent fit in terms of the culture, the work ethic and the drive and he looks to be the next project in the strong player development program of the Heat.

Mitchell Robinson, Jarrett Allen, Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Brandon Clarke and Kendrick Nunn have been named to the Summer League First Team.
Robinson averaged 13.8 points, 10.6 rebounds and 3.4 blocks in only 25.2 mpg in Vegas, and the hype train will continue to roll. Allen had a slow start to his Summer League but came around to dominate as a player of his caliber should. Alexander-Walker and Clarke showed out for the rookie class, with NAW finishing third in scoring at 24.3 points per game. Nunn put up 21.0 points, 5.0 rebounds, 6.3 assists and 1.5 steals in his summer session and will look to crack the backcourt rotation in Miami this year.

Kendrick Nunn was on fire in the Heat's narrow loss against the Timberwolves on Wednesday, posting 28 points (13-of-20 shooting), six rebounds, five assists, two steals and a 3-pointer.
Nunn has done just about everything possible to secure himself a roster spot in Miami this season, and it just might be enough. If he does make the roster he doesn't figure to see much playing time, however it should be noted that he'd be one of the few true PGs on the roster.

Kendrick Nunn finished with 19 points, eight assists, five rebounds, two threes and a steal in 33 minutes against the Magic on Tuesday.
Nunn is doing all he can to land a contract with the Heat after yet another productive Summer League game. Nunn is unlikely to see any minutes on the Heat this season, but he'll be a fun player to watch in the G-League should he get a two-way contract.

Kendrick Nunn led the Heat in scoring for the third time in five games with 22 points on 8-of-17 shooting in a win over the Jazz on Sunday.
He added three rebounds and eight assists to the box score. Nunn has played extremely well in the five Summer League games for the Heat and he is a huge reason that they are undefeated. Nunn has not yet played a game in the NBA, but he has a chance to land a two-way contract with a team if he stays hot.

Kendrick Nunn led the Heat in scoring for the second straight day at the California Classic, putting up 21 points on Wednesday.
Nunn went 6-of-15 from the field with three 3-pointers as well as three assists and two steals. The Heat look unlikely to have backcourt minutes available but Nunn has an established track record as a scorer, so perhaps he can find a niche role as a microwave type. Yante Maten had his second straight solid game as well with 16 points, eight rebounds, two steals, a block and a triple.

Kendrick Nunn had quite a night in the California Classic Summer League as he led the Heat to an 89-88 win over the Kings by posting 27 points (9-for-20 FGs, 5-for-5 FTs), four threes, five rebounds, three assists and two steals in 35 minutes.
A high school teammate of Jabari Parker, Nunn also had all six of his fouls in his first 17 minutes, but Summer League allows for ten. Nunn averaged 19.3 points in 29.0 minutes per game off the bench over 49 games for the Santa Cruz Warriors last season. He was also a 25.9 ppg scorer the previous season as a senior at Oakland. The Heat have quite a crowded backcourt, but they probably have the best track record when it comes to developing undrafted G-League players, so there's hope that Nunn could stick on the big-league squad.

Kendrick Nunn has signed with the Heat for the rest of the season.
This has no impact on the fantasy landscape this season as it is unlikely that Nunn will play tonight but this may be a long term move for the Heat as he has shown potential in the G-League. Kendrick played for the Santa Cruz Warriors this season but may end up with the Heat next season or their G-League affiliate.

The Heat are planning on signing Kendrick Nunn out of the G-League.
Nunn finished second in the nation in scoring with 25.9 points per game in his senior season at Oakland and he also led the entire NCAA in 3-pointers with 4.47 per contest. He's spent this past season with the Santa Cruz Warriors in the G-League, where he has averaged 19.3 points (.473 shooting), 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.5 steals and 1.7 3-pointers. Not a bad flier for Miami to take with their season officially over.

The Warriors have waived Tyler Ulis, Kendrick Nunn, Danuel House Jr. and Deyonta Davis.
All of these guys were likely to be cut with the Warriors depth (though they did sign Alfonzo McKinnie so go figure). Ulis will have the easiest time trying to sign elsewhere but there’s a good chance all of these players will spends some time in the G-League or overseas this season.
