Suns sign F T.J. Warren.
He was on the second team for Las Vegas Summer League and he showed his style of play at NC State could translate to the NBA. Warren is going to start the season as P.J. Tucker's backup, but he could crack the starting lineup with Tucker possibly being suspended for a DUI charge. If he develops a 3-point shot, he could become a terrific scorer and fantasy asset in a couple seasons. Aug 8 - 1:15 PM

The Phoenix Suns have been impressed with first-round pick T.J. Warren's play.

Warren was named to the All-NBA Summer League Second Team after averaging 17.8 points per game on 54.4 percent shooting from the field. "We’d hoped he’d be able to translate his efficient scoring from college to the NBA and it certainly did look like it did translate," Suns general manager Ryan McDonough said. Even though the Suns are excited about Warren, he'll be coming off the bench to start the season and won't provide much fantasy value.

T.J. Warren, Rudy Gobert, Tim Hardaway Jr., Russ Smith and Jordan McRae were named to the Samsung All-NBA Summer League Second Team.

Warren was one of the more well-rounded scorers in the tournament and was taking great shots all week. He said that he would like to work on his perimeter game a little, but really likes attacking the basket. He figures to be slotted in behind P.J. Tucker and will have to earn his minutes. Although, the Suns did play him at power forward and center at summer league, so that could help him.

T.J. Warren played with four stitches on his face on Tuesday, shooting 12-of-22 from the field for 28 points with 11 boards, one assist and one turnover in 32 minutes.

He is scoring in bunches and is getting almost whatever he wants. Warren will likely get some minutes behind P.J. Tucker, but is unlikely to be a big factor for the Suns off the bat.

T.J. Warren needed four stitches due to an elbow to the face on Sunday.

He wasn't able to build off his 22-point game in the opener. Warren has been a factor in summer league and been able to get to the rim, so he'll likely compete for minutes on the wing.

T.J. Warren looked like a go-to scorer vs. the Warriors on Saturday, making 10-of-17 from the field for 22 points with four rebounds, one steal, one block and one turnover.

He was attacking the basket at will and the Warriors couldn't guard him. Warren fits in very well with the Suns and he's likely to be slotted in as the backup small forward. The NC State product has some nice keeper appeal in several formats, but may need a break to get enough run in his rookie season.
Jul 12 - 10:27 PM

Suns coach Jeff Hornacek had positive things to say about their new rookie T.J. Warren.

"He’ll fit right in," Hornacek said. "He’s got that unique skill of scoring. When it comes time for the playoffs and you need to get tough buckets, we think he’s a guy who can get tough buckets." Warren led the ACC last season with 24.9 points per game, while also setting the single-season record at N.C. State with 871 points. Warren's fantasy value will become clearer once the dust settles on restricted free agents Eric Bledsoe and P.J. Tucker.

T.J. Warren said he lost 20 pounds before his last season at NC State.

The weight loss made him the prototypical volume scorer. He led Division I in field goal attempts, field goal makes, and ranked second behind Doug McDermott for player efficiency rating and points per game among drafted players. If the Suns somehow lose out on restricted free agents Eric Bledsoe or P.J. Tucker, Warren could be someone to watch.
Jun 28 - 10:38 AM

The Suns used the No. 14 pick to draft N.C. State forward T.J. Warren.

Phoenix had reportedly promised Warren that they'd draft him with this pick, so this is one of the few unsurprising moments in on otherwise free-wheeling draft night. Phoenix is on the cusp of playoff contention in the West and they're not certain to retain Channing Frye (unrestricted) or P.J. Tucker (restricted) in free agency, so Warren could find himself with a sizeable role on opening night. He's a bona fide volume scorer who averaged 24.9 points in the NCAA last season, and we'll keep a close eye on him during the preseason.

T.J. Warren has reportedly received a draft promise from the Phoenix Suns.

The Suns own picks 14, 18, and 28 in Thursday's draft and could have promised the former N.C. State forward that they'd select him in any of those spots. Warren brings a solid mid-range game to the table and would likely fill a role with the Suns as a scorer off the bench. The 20-year-old was a surprise addition to green room, so there could be legs to this reported promise with the No. 18 pick being the most likely pick used on Warren.
Jun 26 - 10:54 AM

NC State forward T.J. Warren has accepted his invite to the 2014 NBA Draft.

He's somewhat unlikely to go in the lottery and isn't a complete lock to go in the first round. Many mock drafts have Warren going to the Celtics at No. 17, which would be a good landing spot for him especially if the Celtics go into rebuild mode. It's worth noting he was also a scratch for a Nuggets workout on June 16.
Jun 20 - 12:17 PM

N.C. State forward T.J. Warren will declare himself eligible for the 2014 NBA draft, according to Yahoo! Sports.

Warren's offensive game blossomed during his sophomore season, which he finished averaging 24.8 points on 52.5 percent shooting, with 7.1 rebounds, 1.8 steals and 0.6 blocks. He has a knack for scoring in the lane and he's hard to guard in transition, but a shaky outside shot (27.2 percent from downtown) may complicate his ability to play SF in the NBA.
