Fellas, we need to talk.
Things have gotten completely out of hand and we need to figure a way out of this mess. Come on over here and sit down. Grab something to drink and let’s get to this.
Former Simeon Wolverine standout guard Kendrick Nunn, has signed a partially-guaranteed contract with the NBA Champion Golden State Warriors. This means that he will play on their summer league team, and if he makes the cut he’ll have a chance to sign a guaranteed deal and join Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, and fellow Illinoisan Shaun Livingston on the big stage.
Nunn was a spectacular leaper and shooter at Simeon where he won four state titles from 2010-2013. The 6-3 guard went on to play for three seasons at the University of Illinois where he excelled on the court, but had troubles off of it. A much publicized domestic violence charge resulted in his dismissal form the Illini, causing him to miss the entire 2016-2017 season.

But Nunn found a new home at Oakland University, and his game continued to develop to the tune of 25.9 points per game – good enough for 2nd in Division 1 basketball, and behind only Trae Young of Oklahoma.
“Leading the nation in scoring was a goal during my redshirt year,” Nunn told the Bigs of WVON Radio. “I put the work in and the results came. Oakland was the right fit for me, and a lot of guards have had success there.”
He took the free agent route instead of waiting to be drafted, and worked out for several teams, before Golden State offered him contract.
“It’s a blessing,” Nunn said. “The staff at Golden State is very interested in my development.”
