Lakers guard Kendrick Nunn says it’s a “no-brainer” that he will pick up his $5.25M player option and will return to the team next season.
Kendrick Nunn says it’s a “no-brainer” that he will pick up his player option for the 2022-23 season with the Lakers. He says with an offseason of recovery and training, he expects to be fully healthy for the start of training camp.— Dave McMenamin (@mcten) April 11, 2022
ANALYSIS: Nunn signed a two-year deal as a free agent with Lakers before this season which turned out to be a total dud. He was expected to be a big part of the team's rotation but he ended up not playing any games due to a lingering bone bruise.
Nunn referred to the injury as being "extremely frustrating" but he not says he's feeling much better and expects to be healthy for training camp.
Last season as a member of the Miami Heat, he averaged 14.6 points, 3.2 rebound and 2.6 assists in 29.5 in 56 regular season games.
