Former Illinois guard Kendrick Nunn is transferring to Oakland, according to Shannon Ryan of the Chicago Tribune.

The decision was confirmed to CBS Sports' Jon Rothstein.

Nunn was dismissed from Illinois after pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery charges. He was charged after hitting a woman in the head, pushing her to the floor and pouring water on her during an argument in her apartment. Nunn also had two charges of domestic battery dropped as part of a plea deal.

Nunn averaged 15.5 points and five rebounds as a junior last season.
