Sources: FA Warren, Nets agree to 1-year deal

News

After missing most of the past two seasons with a stress fracture in his left foot, free agent forward T.J. Warren has agreed to a one-year contract with the Brooklyn Nets, sources told ESPN on Tuesday.

Warren played four games in 2020-21, and missed the entirety of the 2021 season with consecutive fractures, but he’s recovering now and the Nets are hopeful that he can play a role at both forward positions.

Warren’s commitment will make him the 11th player under contract for the Nets, who are engaged in trade talks for All-NBA forward Kevin Durant after he requested a move last week.

Warren, 28, averaged nearly 20 points on 53% from the field in 2020 for the Indiana Pacers, and has shown an ability to be a significant and versatile offensive weapon in both Indiana and Phoenix.

Warren averaged 31 points on 58 percent shooting – including and 52 percent from 3 in six games in the Orlando bubble in 2020. He averaged 20 points, 6.3 rebounds and three assists in Indiana’s first-round playoff loss to the Miami Heat.
