Jameel Warney to Play for Mavs Summer League Team
The Dallas Mavericks continue to add to their Summer League team by adding Stony Brook’s Jameel Warney to their roster.
After using their lone draft pick in the second round to select A.J. Hammons, the Mavericks now set their sights on adding quality players to fill out their summer league team.
Immediately after the draft, another big man was being connected to the Mavericks in joining their summer league team.
Warney is a 6’8″, 260lb big man with a 7’1″ wingspan. He made national noise this past year in college basketball after leading Stony Brook to the NCAA tournament to face the University of Kentucky early on. Even though he played in a small conference, Warney put up impressive accomplishments during his last year at Stony Brook.
Warney finished as the school’s all time leader in points, rebounds, blocks, and games played while being an AP Honorable Mention All-American. He was the American East Player and Defensive Player of the Year while also being a finalist for the Karl Malone Award Finalist (best power forward in college basketball).
Although Warney’s Stony Brook team was unable to upset Kentucky in the NCAA tournament, Warney did post 23 points and 15 rebounds against Kentucky’s “star-studded” roster.
Warney finished his senior season averaging right at 20 points, 11 rebounds and 3 blocks(!) game.
