Dunleavy will be beginning his 15th season in the NBA this fall, though his 2015-16 season was plagued by injury. He saw action in only 31 games, averaging 7.2 points per game and connecting on 39.4 percent of his three-pointers. For his career, his average point total is 11.5, with a 37.6 percentage from long range.
The 2016-17 season will be the second year of a three-year deal that Dunleavy signed last year. In 2017-18, he’s scheduled to make $5.1 million.
