2022 Fantasy Outlook
There was no outlook written for Kendrick Nunn in 2022. Check out the latest news below for more on his current fantasy value.
$Signed a one-year, $5 million contract with the Lakers in August of 2021. Exercised $5.25 million player option for 2022-23 in June of 2022. Traded to the Wizards in January of 2023.
Personal Bio/PreCareer Summary

Nunn was born in 1995 to parents Melvin Nunn Jr. and Kimberly Harris in Chicago, Illinois. He attended high school at Simeon Career Academy in Chicago for four years, where his number (20) was retired after he led the school to four consecutive state titles. During his time at Simeon, Nunn shared the court with fellow future NBA player Jabari Parker. Nunn received scholarship offers as early as his freshman year and had one point even committed to Texas A&M, but he later de-committed and chose Illinois over the likes of Marquette, Memphis and Ohio State. He spent three years at Illinois before transferring to Oakland, where he finished his degree in Integrative Studies. Nunn has two sisters, Kendyl Nunn and Sarafina Benson. He also owns a marketing business called NunnBetter Group. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@nunnbetter_). Nunn spent three seasons with the University of Illinois before transferring to Oakland for his senior year. He saw starter-type minutes right out of the gates for the Illini, averaging 6.2 points on his way to making the all-Big Ten Freshman team. Nunn's scoring improved to 11.1 ppg his sophomore year and 15.5 ppg as a junior, and he chipped in 5.0 rebounds his junior year as well. He sat out the 2016-17 season as a transfer before taking the Horizon League by storm in his final year of eligibility. Nunn led the conference in scoring and three-pointers made, and was second in the entire nation to only Oklahoma's Trae Young in scoring. He was second in three-pointers made only to Wofford's Fletcher Magee. Nunn was not selected in the 2018 NBA Draft, but he was signed by the Warriors shortly thereafter.

Plays well in Wizards debut
GWashington Wizards
January 26, 2023
Nunn supplied 12 points (5-9 FG, 2-5 3Pt), four rebounds, four assists and two steals across 22 minutes during Wednesday's 108-103 victory over the Rockets.
ANALYSIS
Nunn surprisingly saw 22 minutes during his team debut, though he'll presumably see a reduction in role once Monte Morris (hamstring) returns. He'll mostly be competing for backup minutes at guard with Delon Wright and Jordan Goodwin. He may steal some time away from Corey Kispert as well.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
May be headed to Washington
GWashington Wizards
January 23, 2023
The Lakers are finalizing a trade that would send Nunn and three second-round picks to the Wizards in exchange for Rui Hachimura, Shams Charania of The Athletic reports.
ANALYSIS
Hachimura was excused from Monday's practice due to personal reasons, and reports of a potential trade came soon after, so it appears like the deal is nearly done, though nothing has been made official yet. Nunn has been the subject of trade talks since arriving in Los Angeles after failing to live up to the hype he generated while playing in Miami. However, most of his recent struggles can likely be attributed to health, as the lefty point guard didn't play at all during 2021-22 campaign while rehabbing from a knee injury. He's healthy now and has made 39 appearances this season, averaging 6.7 points and 1.4 rebounds in 13.5 minutes, but he still doesn't look like the dynamic player he was with the Heat.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2021
2020
Nunn's sophomore NBA campaign got off to a slow start, as he dealt with a groin injury in the preseason and saw sporadic playing time through January. After Goran Dragic went down with an ankle injury in early February, Nunn moved into the starting five and remained in that role for each of the final 42 games in which he played. All told, the 6-foot-2 guard's per-game numbers -- 14.6 points, 3.2 rebounds, 2.6 assists, 2.2 three-pointers and 0.6 steals -- closely resembled those he posted as a rookie. However, Nunn showed increased acumen as a shooter, boosting his field-goal and three-point accuracy to 48.5 percent and 38.1 percent, respectively. He also knocked down 93.3 percent of his free-throw attempts, though he got to the line only 60 times during the regular season. Nunn's productive two-year stint with Miami was particularly impressive considering that he joined the team as an undrafted free agent, but the Heat opted to part ways with him after acquiring Kyle Lowry in the offseason. Nunn reportedly turned down more lucrative offers for a chance to compete for a championship with the Lakers, though Los Angeles' moves to bring in Russell Westbrook as well as fellow guards Wayne Ellington and Malik Monk while retaining Talen Horton-Tucker could make for a logjam in the backcourt. Nunn should provide an injection of youth and shooting for a squad in need of both, but his move to a backup role doesn't help his fantasy outlook.
As an undrafted rookie, Nunn made an immediate and surprising impact for Miami and contributed majorly to the team's regular-season success. He finished third in scoring among rookies with 15.3 points per contest and tacked on 3.3 assists, 2.7 boards and 2.0 triples while earning All-Rookie first team honors. Nunn didn't struggle with shooting as many first-year players do, as he shot 43.9 percent from the floor, 85.0 percent from the free-throw line and 35.0 percent from downtown. Though he saw his role drastically scaled back in the playoffs, Nunn started every game in which he appeared in the regular season and logged a healthy 29.3 minutes per contest. The Oakland product provided 19 games with at least 20 points and two 30-point performances, including a 36-point eruption against Atlanta in December. His impressive rookie campaign came at the expense of a banged-up Goran Dragic, and Dragic, a free agent, is expected to be Miami's starting point guard in 2020-21 if he remains on the team. If Dragic signs elsewhere, Nunn could be in line for a starting gig once again, making him worth a later-round pick in most fantasy basketball leagues.
