Kendrick Nunn traded to Wizards Monday
The Los Angeles Lakers have traded Kendrick Nunn and three second-round picks to the Washington Wizards in exchange for Rui Hachimura.
Nunn has slowly improved this season after missing all of the 2021-22 campaign with a knee injury. The third-year guard is averaging 6.7 points, 0.9 assists, and 1.4 rebounds on 40.6% shooting on the year -- all of which are career-lows. Nunn's talents as a scorer and as a ball-handler are well-documented, but his efficiency has understandably waned. The 2019 rookie of the year runner-up joins a Wizards team that plays four guards at least 18.9 minutes per game. How Wizards coach Wes Unseld Jr. will use Nunn is unknown, but don't expect him in a major role right off the bat.
