Former Laker Dumps LeBron James’ Klutch Sports After 2-Year Disaster

Kendrick Nunn joined Octagon. The former Laker left Klutch Sports after his terrible stint with the franchise and the trade. Nunn believes that his agency is responsible for his failure.

Octagon may not find Nunn a really big deal right away, but he has high expectations from his free agency.

Nunn had high expectations in 2021 as well. He was a 25-year-old averaging 15 points in his first two seasons as NBA player. He could easily get a $15 million deal, per John Hollinger from The Athletic, and the Toronto Raptors were mentioned as a potential suitor. Toronto wanted him, but Nunn signed a two-year deal worth $10 million.

“Free agent guard Kendrick Nunn has agreed to a two-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, source tells ESPN,” Adrian Wojnarowski from ESPN reported back then. “Deal includes a player option. Nunn turned down significantly more money to chase a title with the Lakers.”

What made Nunn sign a cheaper deal? Well, he really thought that the Lakers would win a title.

“L.A. would be appealing to anyone, honestly speaking,” Nunn said at his introductory press conference. “But just that chance to go out there and win a ring. A good chance, a great chance to win a ring. I look at the roster around and I’m one of the younger guys, so I’m going to be a sponge to a lot of these guys in the locker room and just continue to grow and develop my game as well.”

It didn’t happen thought. Nunn suffered a knee injury in training camp and things only got worse from that point. The talented player missed the entire 2021-22 NBA season and opted in for the 2022-23 season.

The Lakers didn’t waste much time and sent Nunn to the Washington Wizards. He was traded and this particular trade worked well for the Lakers.

Where is Nunn going next? He shouldn’t expect a big deal and it will probably stay within the $10 million dollar frame.
