The Nets are remaking their roster. and added another piece to the puzzle as they look to trade Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving.
Per Adrian Wojnarowki of ESPN, Brooklyn is signing guard/forward T.J. Warren to a one-year contract. Warren, of course, most recently spent time with the Pacers.
But as Wojnarowski noted, he has missed the vast majority of the past two seasons with foot injuries. That said, Warren was fantastic in the 2020 Disney bubble and the Nets are hoping a return to good health will help him discover some of that magic.
Warren, 28, last played more than four games in 2019-20, averaging 19.8 points and shooting 54 percent from the floor. He actually averaged 31 points in the Disney bubble that year, and went a sizzling 52 percent on 3-pointers. The Pacers lost to the Heat in the first round of the playoffs that year.
This is the second interesting move for a veteran Brooklyn has made this offseason, after recently trading for forward Royce O’Neale, formerly of the Jazz.
The big news in Brooklyn, though, revolves around what happens next with Durant and Irving. Keep it here on Hoops Wire as we will continue to track developments.
