Nunn headed to Oakland

1 Comment

Oakland has landed Illinois transfer Kendrick Nunn, a source confirms to NBCSports.com.

Nunn was booted from the Illini program earlier this off-season after he pled guilty to misdemeanor battery charges stemming from an altercation with a woman.

The 6-foot-3 guard averaged 15.5 points per game last season on 42.8 percent shooting from the floor and 39.1 percent from 3-point range while grabbing 5.0 rebounds per outing.

Nunn will have to sit out the upcoming year under NCAA transfer rules and will have one season of eligibility remaining in 2017-18.

Oakland went 23-12 last season and lost dynamo point guard Kay Felder to the NBA Draft following his strong junior season last year. They ranked in the top-10 nationally last year in adjusted tempo, utilizing the 3-point and free-throw lines to generate most of their points.
