MONDAY, 8:01am: The signing is official, the Israeli Winner League announced (Twitter link; hat tip to Pick).
THURSDAY, 2:18pm: James Nunnally is set to sign with Israel’s Maccabi Ashdod, reports David Pick of Eurobasket.com (Twitter link). The 24-year-old small forward who spent parts of last season with the Hawks and Sixers had inked a deal this past summer with Estudiantes of Spain, but his time with the club appeared to be nearing an end as of this past weekend, as Marcos Fernández of Planeta ACB reported (translation via Sportando’s Emiliano Carchia).
Nunnally worked out for the Lakers in September, shortly before he signed with Estudiantes. The Jazz and Warriors had a look at him in May, apparently with the summer league in mind. He appeared in 13 NBA games last season after signing two 10-day contracts apiece with Philadelphia and Atlanta, averaging 3.4 points in 12.7 minutes per contest overall. Nunnally otherwise spent much of the season in the D-League, where he put up 18.1 PPG in 33.6 MPG and nailed 41.3% of his three-point attempts. He shot just 32.0% from behind the arc during his NBA stints and was only a 31.8% three-point shooter in seven games for Estudiantes so far this season, however.
The Suns had Nunnally in training camp before the 2013/14 season, and the Cavs, Bulls and Thunder reportedly showed interest in signing him before he received his first 10-day contract from the Hawks. He’ll join fellow former NBA player Terrel Harris on Maccabi Ashdod, assuming Nunnally’s deal becomes official.
