Former LA Lakers, Miami Heat Guard Signs In Greece

A former 15 PPG scorer in the NBA has found his way overseas, to continue his career in Greece. Kendrick Nunn, who hasn't been the same since missing the entire 2021-22 season with a bone bruise in his knee, has signed with KAE Panathinaikos.

He returned last season after the knee injury, and the Los Angeles Lakers were hoping he could return to the 15-point form he showed with the Miami Heat from 2019 through 2021. 

Unfortunately, in 39 games in the Purple & Gold, Nunn was only able to play about 13 minutes a game, and registered 6.7 points per contest while shooting just 32.5% from long range. He was sent to the Washington Wizards midseason, and in 31 games there, he was somewhat better, averaging 7.5 points. 

The 28-year-old undrafted free agent wasn't able to find a gig with an NBA team this summer, however, and began looking seriously at Europe. 

With Panathinaikos, he'll join other former NBAers including Juancho HernangomezKyle GuyJerian Grant (brother of Jerami Grant), and Kostas Antetokounmpo (brother of... well, you know.)
