Minimum free agent Dallas Mavericks will regret not signing: 1. T.J. Warren
Warren has played just four games in the last two seasons combined, but it is easy to forget he averaged 19.8 points per game on 53.6 percent from the field and 40.3 percent on his threes the last time he was healthy. The 28-year-old was an elite and efficient scorer that helped the Pacers reach the playoffs.
Warren signed a one-year minimum deal with the Brooklyn Nets in free agency as he looks to rebuild his value. The 6’8 forward suffered two left foot fractures that have kept him on the sidelines for so long, but he is reportedly healthy and ready to contribute next season.
T.J. Warren has the potential to be the steal of the offseason. If he returns to averaging even 15 points per game, the 6’8 forward will significantly outperform his contract. Warren needs to stay healthy and return to form, but the potential is there.
The Brooklyn Nets could be headed towards a rebuild with Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving both wanting out before the start of the season. Warren could have signed to play for a contender in Dallas, and still received plenty of offensive opportunities when healthy.
The Dallas Mavericks will regret not signing T.J. Warren when they had the chance. The 28-year-old should put up solid numbers when healthy, and he is set to go down as the bargain of the offseason.
