Nunn will start Friday's preseason finale against the Rockets, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
It seems like Jimmy Butler might be getting the night off, with Nunn starting in his stead. Across four preseason games, Nunn is averaging 16.9 fantasy points in 13.0 minutes per contest.
Nunn produced 13 points (6-12 FG, 1-6 3Pt), seven assists, three steals and two rebounds in 26 minutes during Wednesday's 108-94 win over the Hornets.
Nunn was impressive in Wednesday's preseason matchup against the Hornets, leading the Heat in assists and finishing with a plus-17 net rating. Despite his outstanding effort, Nunn's role will diminish when Goran Dragic (rest) and Justice Winslow (rest) return, presumably Monday against Atlanta. That said, if he's able to string together several solid performances, there's a chance Nunn'll be able to carve out a steady bench role in 2019-20.
Nunn will start Wednesday's game against the Hornets.
Nunn will start Wednesday's game against Charlotte in place of Justice Winslow who's out for rest purposes. The rookie played seven minutes in Tuesday's preseason debut, scoring two points on 1-of-4 shooting from the field while dishing out four assists and grabbing a single rebound.
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).
Nunn reached agreement on a contract Wednesday with the Heat, Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.
Nunn will assume the final opening on the Heat roster that was vacated following the release of Rodney McGruder, who was later claimed off waivers by the Clippers. After going undrafted out of Oakland last June, Nunn attended training camp with the Warriors and spent his first professional season with Golden State's G League affiliate, the Santa Cruz Warriors. The 6-foot-3 guard could see action if he joins the Heat in Brooklyn ahead of its season finale Wednesday against the Nets, but his main evaluation is likely to come during summer league and training camp.
Nunn (ankle) returned to the court Sunday, finishing the contest with 25 points (10-19 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 5-6 FT), three rebounds, three assists, one steal and one blocked shot.
A member of the midseason All-NBA G League team which was revealed on Monday, Dunn has been a revelation for a Santa Cruz squad desperate for a scoring menace. Saturday's contest was the first game in which Dunn has missed all season, but the guard made sure to erase that memory with a team-leading 25 points Sunday. He's seen his season average in points (19.6) rise a point in the last month alone and appears to be one of the premiere scorers currently in the G League.
Nunn scored 21 points (7-16 FG, 1-7 3Pt, 6-7 FT) and picked up seven rebounds, two assists and a block in Santa Cruz's 95-88 win over Stockton on Wednesday.
Nunn is having a heck of a rookie season in Santa Cruz, coming off the bench and routinely putting up big numbers. Wednesday, the guard not only shot well from inside the arc but was effective as a rebounder as well. If Nunn can improve on his 32.2 percent shooting form beyond the arc, there's no reason why Nunn won't get more playing time as a more complete scorer.
Nunn finished Wednesday's win over the Hustle with 30 points (11-20 FG, 4-9 3Pt, 4-4 FT), four assists, two rebounds, one steal and one blocked shot.
Nunn continues to be a major offensive force for Santa Cruz, playing the second-most minutes of anyone despite coming off the bench. It's obvious at this point Santa Cruz values Nunn's scoring prowess as a sixth man, but there's a possibility he could wind up receiving more minutes even if comes off the bench given how well he's performing as of late.
Nunn posted 17 points (8-15 FG, 1-2 3Pt), seven assists, two rebounds and one steal in the win Wednesday over Austin.
Nunn has been a productive scorer for Santa Cruz despite primarily coming off the bench, averaging 18.6 points on 28.0 minutes over 26 games. The guard is averaging about 2.2 turnovers per game, so there certainly is some room for growth given he's not facilitating (3.8 assist per game) as much as Santa Cruz may hope, but it's tough to ignore the scoring acumen Nunn has show in his rookie season.
Nunn was let go by the Warriors on Friday.
Nunn wasn't able to impress the coaching staff enough to earn a final roster spot. He's a strong candidate to end up in the G-League or overseas in an effort to see time on the court and improve his skills.
