    Discuss.

    Want a young, promising PG? A guy who easily scores 14-15 PPG? Has one of the best FT% in the whole league? Can hit the 3?


    Yup.

    Was not expecting this pickup, but I’m pleasantly surprised. I think this was a steal for us.

    Great signing. I'm going to add a new name to Rob's list: Pivot Master.

    Patty Mills would have been nice. Nunn is better. Less experience, but we have TONS of experience. Nunn brings the same 3pt shot and much more athleticism and D.

    Great signing. I felt the roster needed a back-up PG, but not necessarily a traditional playmaking PG. We can stagger Westbrook and LBJ to always ensure we have an elite playmaker on the floor. So for back-up PG I was eyeing someone who can turn into a microwave and put up buckets.

    That’s why I wanted Mills so bad, but that was before I even knew Nunn would be an option.

    We got rid of a Pope but have a Nunn and a Monk. Have to keep that manna from Heaven coming somewhere!

    If Pelinka doesnt make this comment at the intro press conference, I’ll be disappointed

    Nunn also has better % on pretty much everything, I think.

    Pope is higher in the command chain but having those 2 should suffice to 1 pope?

    I'm really just laughing right now wondering what the rest of the league is thinking along with Dennis. Nunn torched us in the past and is so young. THT, Nunn and AD moving towards the future isn't too shabby.

    Poor Dennis

    Love this pickup. He had a couple nice games against us in the finals too.

    Good creator/shooter/finisher

    I like him but he always seemed to end up in Spoelstra's doghouse. I think he tends to get lost on defense a lot which negates his obvious talent.

    Hopefully Vogel can improve him on that end. At the least certainly helps with shooting and athleticism and he's slotted for a backup role behind Westbrook. Seems like a great fit in that scorer off the bench role that guys like Payne and Clarkson have been able to provide

    Maybe our best pickup after Westbrook, a young PG that has the potential to develop into a starting PG and gives us much needed athleticism on the perimeter.
