Player Bio

Nunn was born in 1995 to parents Melvin Nunn Jr. and Kimberly Harris in Chicago, Illinois. He attended high school at Simeon Career Academy in Chicago for four years, where his number (20) was retired after he led the school to four consecutive state titles. During his time at Simeon, Nunn shared the court with fellow future NBA player Jabari Parker. Nunn received scholarship offers as early as his freshman year and had one point even committed to Texas A&M, but he later de-committed and chose Illinois over the likes of Marquette, Memphis and Ohio State. He spent three years at Illinois before transferring to Oakland, where he finished his degree in Integrative Studies. Nunn has two sisters, Kendyl Nunn and Sarafina Benson. He also owns a marketing business called NunnBetter Group. You can follow him on Twitter and Instagram (@nunnbetter_). Nunn spent three seasons with the University of Illinois before transferring to Oakland for his senior year. He saw starter-type minutes right out of the gates for the Illini, averaging 6.2 points on his way to making the all-Big Ten Freshman team. Nunn's scoring improved to 11.1 ppg his sophomore year and 15.5 ppg as a junior, and he chipped in 5.0 rebounds his junior year as well. He sat out the 2016-17 season as a transfer before taking the Horizon League by storm in his final year of eligibility. Nunn led the conference in scoring and three-pointers made, and was second in the entire nation to only Oklahoma's Trae Young in scoring. He was second in three-pointers made only to Wofford's Fletcher Magee. Nunn was not selected in the 2018 NBA Draft, but he was signed by the Warriors shortly thereafter.
