Nunn officially became a member of the Heat's 2019-20 roster Aug. 1 after the team guaranteed $150,000 of his $1.42 million salary for the upcoming season, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. Along with Nunn, second-year forward Duncan Robinson will also be playing on a partially guaranteed contract heading into training camp. Nunn, a 24-year-old point guard who has yet to make his NBA debut, will have an additional $450,000 of his salary guaranteed if he remains on the Heat's opening-night roster. Nunn isn't expected to be a regular member of the Heat's rotation and will likely just be providing depth at the position behind Goran Dragic and Justise Winslow.
Nunn will not play Saturday against the Pelicans, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports. The Heat will give Nunn the day off. It's possible we've seen the last of Nunn in summer league, as the playoff format is single elimination.
Nunn totaled 28 points (13-20 FG, 1-3 3Pt, 1-1 FT), six rebounds, five assists and two steals across 33 minutes during the Heat's 90-87 loss to the Timberwolves in a Las Vegas Summer League game Wednesday. It was just the latest installment of Nunn's spectacular summer, one that's now seen him average 21.0 points (on 55.0 percent shooting), 6.3 assists, 5.0 rebounds and 1.5 steals across four games in Las Vegas. A G League star last season, Nunn is making a formidable case for serious consideration for a roster spot later this year, particularly if the team moves veteran Goran Dragic.
Nunn produced 22 points (8-17 FG, 2-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), eight assists and three rebounds across 32 minutes in Sunday's 93-81 win over the Jazz in the Las Vegas Summer League. Followers of G-League action know all about Nunn and his explosive potential. The Heat have some holes to fill in the backcourt and it's reasonable to predict that the 6-3 guard could be in line for a roster spot if he continues his strong play. He's scored 37 points and collected 12 assists in his first two games in Las Vegas.
Nunn tallied 15 points (5-9 FG, 3-6 3Pt, 2-2 FT), six rebounds, four assists, three steals and one block across 20 minutes during the Heat's 103-62 win over Team China in a Las Vegas Summer League game Friday. The second-year guard had his shot locked in from all over the court, and when combined with first-round pick Tyler Herro's team-leading 23-point tally, Nunn's performance made it a highly efficient day for the Heat's starting backcourt. Nunn is looking to latch on with Miami after spending last season with the Warriors-affiliated Santa Cruz squad in the G League and averaging 19.3 points (on 47.3 percent shooting), 3.8 rebounds, 2.8 assists and 1.4 steals across 29.0 minutes over 49 games (one start).
