Warriors sign NCAA’s second-leading scorer to partially guaranteed deal [report]


The Warriors were unable to buy a second-round pick in Thursday night’s draft, but that didn’t stop them from signing another player in addition to No. 28 overall pick Jacob Evans.

Golden State has signed Oakland University’s (Michigan) Kendrick Nunn, the second leading scorer in the NCAA last year (25.9 ppg), to a partially guaranteed deal, according to ESPN’s Ian Begley.

Nunn confirmed he’s headed to the Bay on Twitter Thursday night.

Nunn played his first three seasons at Illinois, averaging 15.5 points per game his junior season. He was dismissed in 2016 after pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery, and transferred to Oakland for his senior season. Nunn was chosen as the Horizon League Player of the Year in 2017-18.
