Nunn, 24, has been one of the best stories of Miami’s season.
The Heat signed the undrafted pro on the last day of the 2018-19 regular season. Since then, he has ascended and impressed his way through the Heat ranks to become the team’s starting point guard.
Morant, on the other hand, has been in limelight since the beginning of the year. The Memphis Grizzlies selected him with the No. 2 pick in the 2019 NBA Draft.
The 20-year-old is averaging 17.6 points, 6.9 assists and 3.5 rebounds per game this season. While the Grizzlies are currently the eight seed in the Western Conference, they have a subpar 32-33 record.
As for the Heat, they are having a strong campaign. Nunn is putting up 15.6 points, 3.4 assists and 2.7 points per game this season. The 6-foot-2 bull dog is the team’s fourth-highest scorer.
There is no official timetable for when the NBA will resume the 2019-20 season.
