Mavericks, Pacers Interested In T.J. Warren?

2:33pm: A source confirms to Tim MacMahon of ESPN.com (Twitter link) that the Mavs have interest in Warren and adds the Pacers to the list of interested teams. However, Brad Townsend of The Dallas Morning News (Twitter link) has his own source downplaying Dallas’ interest in the Suns wing.

12:58pm: The Mavericks have reached out to the Suns about a trade involving forward T.J. Warren, tweets Ian Begley of SNY.TV. Rival teams believe Phoenix is willing to deal both Warren and Josh Jackson, Begley adds.

Warren, 25, has developed into a reliable scorer for the Suns, averaging 18.0 points per game last season and shooting a career-best .428 from 3-point range. However, he missed 33 games due to issues with his right ankle. He has an affordable contract that stretches over the next three years at $10.81MM, $11.75MM and $12.69MM.

Dallas could use some more scoring punch to team with Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis and is able to fit Warren into cap space if necessary.

Earlier this week, Suns officials told Duane Rankin of The Arizona Republic that they aren’t trying to trade Warren, Jackson or the No. 6 pick in tonight’s draft.

  1. Skip, Tampa

    Mavs should do a 3 deal with the Heatinstead of going after Warren.
    Heat: Lee, 2019 #37 Mavs, 2023 2nd Heat pick.
    Mavs: Dragic

    Win for both teams and Dragic is expiring. Plus Luka wants him to join him in Dallas.
    Dragic for 2nds is a steal. Lee is just salary balancer.

    • What your saying is that dragic is just worth a 37th pick…Heat and ANY team would keep him rather than take on a 2nd round pick

  2. Z-A

    Entire league is interested in Warren. Under a favorable contract. Suns make no sense…Trade assets for Bridges, who plays the same position. Trade for Tyler Johnson who isnt a PG. They should have traded for Reggie Jackson. Anderson for Jackson swap could have been done.

  3. If I were a team with a late round first pick, I would try and pry Josh Jackson from the Suns. Super athletic, good size, good tools. Maybe a change of scenery and coach stability would do wonders for his game.
