NBA shooting guard Kendrick Nunn has reportedly received an offer to renew his career in Europe.
The 28-year-old was one of the association’s breakthrough stars four years ago, earning a berth with the Miami Heat in the 2020 NBA Finals in his rookie season.
Nunn was not drafted in 2018 before finding game time in the G League.
The 6-foot-3 combo guard spent the following preseason with the Heat and made a great impression on head coach Erik Spoelstra.
The Illinois native started in all of his 67 appearances for the Heat in 2019-20, averaging 15.3 points, 2.7 rebounds and 3.3 assists.
During the season, Nunn was the fastest rookie to reach 500 points in franchise history, in 31 games – one fewer than Dwyane Wade.
He was also the first undrafted player ever to win multiple Rookie of the Month awards.
Nunn made the NBA All-Rookie first-team and helped the Heat reach the NBA Finals, which the Los Angeles Lakers won in six games.
After another year in Miami, Nunn then joined the Lakers in what at the time looked like an offseason commitment.
But the former Oakland star suffered a bruised knee in preseason that eventually cost him the entire 2021-22 season.
Nunn returned to the hardwood the following year but failed to live up to expectations in Los Angeles.
He averaged 6.7 points and shot just 40.6 percent from the field in 39 games before the Lakers traded him to the Washington Wizards for Rui Hachimura.
With his contract expiring, Nunn – who has earned $13.3 million during his career – was unable to find a new team after beginning free agency in 2023.
Later in the summer Olympiakos expressed interest in the guard after failing to lure former Lamar star Mike James from AS Monaco Gazzetta.gr.
Nunn reportedly welcomed the idea of continuing his career in Greece.
But he is said to have asked the EuroLeague giants to give him until the end of August to find a guaranteed contract in the NBA before committing to the move.
Olympiakos have lost their star, forward Sasha Vezenkov, after the reigning EuroLeague MVP signed a three-year deal with the Sacramento Kings this offseason.
