Former Providence Friar Kris Dunn has joined the Capital City Go-Go’s training camp roster for the G-League.
Dunn had a 14 game stint with the Portland Trailblazers last year and showed that he can still be a useful and effective guard on an NBA roster. The former All-American averaged 7.6 ppg, 5.6 apg, 3.5 rpg, and 1.6 spg in 24.0 minutes per game for Rip City while the team dealt with a number of injuries. His passing, athleticism, and defense have never been a question but it’s been his consistency shooting the ball and staying healthy that have made Dunn’s NBA career a little bumpy.
He’s played 245 career games across 6 seasons in the league and is still just 28 years old. The G-League has developed into a much more viable path to the NBA in recent years and if Dunn can take advantage of another 10-day contract, I can see him getting his foot back in the door during this upcoming season. Here’s a look at the Go-Go’s training camp roster and as you can see, Dunn is the veteran of the team.
P.S. Is the G-League serious with that name? Go-Go’s? For real?!?
P.P.S. It looks like Theo John will somehow continue to be involved in some part of my life forever.
