Nunn started his NBA journey with the team of Golden State Warriors. In 2018, he was moved to the team of Santa Cruz Warriors as an affiliate deal. The Miami Heat got Kendrick on April 2019 in a trade deal. Since then, he is a part of the Miami team but his future was uncertain till now.
Future with Miami Heat
The future of Kendrick Nunn might be changed as he is now destined for bigger things in the NBA. As a part of the Summer League first team, he has proved his talent to everyone in the NBA. The team of Miami Heat will now be foolish to not give Nunn a permanent place in their team.
With the addition of Jimmy Butler, the Miami Heat team is looking for a solid duo. They would like to give Butler as much support they can to him and other teammates. Although it is still not officially announced, Kendrick Nunn will surely be a part of NBA 2019-20 roster for Miami Heat.
