LATEST HIGHLIGHTS

SKILLS

Nuni is an experienced international Forward who is a current member of the South Sudan National Team. Nuni's versatility is notable, being able to play both Forward positions. 

Nuni runs the floor and moves like a guard, enabling him to score inside out. He has good touch around the rim, being able to finish with both hands. He is elite in transition and is difficult to guard.

Nuni is a defensive specialist who can get in passing lanes, get deflections and block shots. He uses his 7'3" wingspan very effectively to disrupt shots whether at the basket or even jump shots. His speed allows him to guard 1-4, and he has even used his length to guard the 5 when needed. 

Nuni knows how to get to the FT line and converts consistently, shooting 82.5% from the charity stripe so far this season. 

Nuni is a consistently hard worker and high character individual whose soft-spoken demeanour off the court is a contrast to the intensity he brings each time he sets foot on the court.
