MIAMI – Kendrick Nunn’s time with the Miami Heat is over.

The guard has signed a 2-year deal with the Lakers according to Stadium’s Shams Charania.

The deal is reportedly worth $10-million.

The Heat originally had the right to match any offer for Nunn, but earlier Tuesday, they took away his qualifying offer. That meant Nunn was no longer a restricted free agent.

Nunn averaged 14.6 points for the Heat last season.

Nunn, 26, will now try to win a championship with LeBron James and the Lakers.
