Heat reportedly intend to keep summer surprise Nunn

Heat camp invitee Kendrick Nunn spent his rookie season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League.

The Miami Heat intend to keep guard Kendrick Nunn on the final roster, as Khobi Price of the Sun Sentinel relayed in a recent piece.

Nunn is 6-foot-3 and went undrafted out of Oakland (Mich.) in 2018. He impressed during summer-league play and has shown flashes during training camp.

“We were fortunate to get somebody of his quality,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “He also was a fit with us in terms of the culture fit, the work ethic, the drive – there’s a long lineage of non-drafted Miami Heat players who have come through our player development program and he’s the next notable one.”

Nunn spent one season at Oakland after transferring from Illinois. The former Horizon League Player of the Year spent last season with the Santa Cruz Warriors of the G League.
