Now the important hunt for a third-string point guard, the Sacramento Kings could strike gold with Kendrick Nunn. While Nunn might not have the veteran experience Sacramento is looking for in a bench guard, the 27-year-old has the skillset to contribute when needed.

Kendrick Nunn has had his fair share of injuries, forcing him to take a step back the past two seasons. After going undrafted in 2018, Nunn had a breakout 2019-20 year for the Miami Heat, averaging 15.3 points and 3.3 assists. Since then, Nunn had a falling out in Los Angeles, leading to a trade to the Washington Wizards, where he picked it back up in his limited playing time.

Through 31 games with Washington, Nunn averaged 7.5 points in 14.1 minutes per game with 44/39/90 shooting splits. Nunn proved he can come in and score the ball when needed and is a sure-fire scoring threat off the bench.

The lefty point guard has an impressive shooting stroke and a knack for getting to the rim. While undersized, Nunn shows defensive resilience and holds his own while guarding the perimeter.

Kendrick Nunn is not the best option available, but his talent would be worth having at the end of the bench, especially at a low price. After making $5 million last season, Nunn should expect a pay cut as he could be looking to contribute to a winning team.

If the Sacramento Kings want to find their third-string point guard in free agency, Kendrick Nunn could be their guy. Other notable options include George Hill, Goran Dragic, or Frank Ntilikina.
