NBA News: Kendrick Nunn picks up $5.25 million option with Lakers

Next year, Kendrick Nunn will be back with the Lakers and should be able to make an impact on the court.

Nunn chose to exercise his $5.25 million option and will play for the Lakers again next year after missing the entire season due to a bone injury in his right knee.

Following the Heat's withdrawal of his qualifying offer, Nunn signed with the Lakers last summer.

Nunn was expected to play a significant role in the Lakers' backcourt depth as a gifted scorer who who plays strong defense at both guard positions. 

Rob Pelinka and the Lakers still have a lot of roster building to do even after this transaction.

This includes making an effort to deal Russell Westbrook, even though getting him back seems more and more likely.
