Nunu may choose to still take smite. Hitting their blue wraith can set back their jungler. You can also ward and smite steal their red if you are fast enough. However, since his Q IS a smite, another ignite, a ghost, a teleport... or back when it was still enabled PROMOTE would be more useful if not heavily counter jungling..
Mid - late game, nothing beats promoting bottom lane, then all pushing top. They either deal with the minion, or lose a turret. If they do deal with the minion you win teamfights. Promote with a guy pushing bot lane can give you a safe baron too. I miss that spell D=
