NBA Rumor: Kendrick Nunn Free Agency

13 rumors in this storyline

Knicks targeting Kendrick Nunn in free agency

The Knicks spoke to New Orleans about a potential Ball trade prior to the deadline but nothing materialized. As recently as late in the regular season, there was no consensus on Ball among Knicks decision makers. Nunn, per sources, is among the guards who have been on the Knicks’ radar as they consider their offseason plans. Nunn shot 38.1 percent from beyond the arc on nearly six attempts per game this season and shot it remarkably well in the second half of the season.

Kendrick Nunn could get offers in $15 million range

On the other hand, cap holds don’t do Miami any good if Miami wants to sign-and-trade for talent. Any sign-and-trade would require the Heat to stay below the apron (about $6 million above the tax line), and that could prove difficult. Sources tell The Athletic that Nunn could get offers in the $15 million a year range and Robinson perhaps even more, especially if he can burn all the tape of him guarding Khris Middleton.

The back-to-back NBA Champion Golden State Warriors have waived forwards Deyonta Davis, Danuel House Jr. along with guards Kendrick Nunn and Tyler Ulis, the team announced today. Davis who was originally signed on October 11, did not appear in a game for the Warriors. House Jr. played in three games (one start), averaging 3.3 points and 2.0 rebounds in 13.9 minutes per game. Nunn saw action off the bench in three games, averaging 2.3 points in 9.6 minutes per game. Ulis appeared in four games (one start), averaging 3.0 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 10.2 minutes per game.

sense of urgency coming from Damian Lillard’s camp

Lillard’s 31st birthday approaches in July, and after another season in which Lillard went above and beyond to elevate the Blazers, only to be let down in the playoffs by lack of adjustments and lack of a supporting cast, there is a palpable sense of urgency coming from Lillard’s camp. Lillard wants to win big, and he wants to do it now, and following the Blazers’ first-round exit at the hands of a shorthanded Denver roster, it wasn’t hard to see Lillard’s frustration.
Keon Johnson knew what the NBA Draft combine record for max vertical leap was before he broke it this week, but even he didn’t expect to jump as high as he did. On Wednesday, Johnson jumped 48 inches in the air to break a 20-year-old record set by Kenny Gregory, who jumped 45 1/2 inches in 2001. Johnson also recorded a 41 1/2-inch standing vertical, which is also a combine record and 4 1/2 inches higher than anyone else in this year’s class. “It was great. It was a goal of mine going into it. For me to break the record and add a little bit more to it, I feel like it’s a great way for me to leave my mark on the draft combine,” Johnson said.
