Once a 20-points-per-game scorer, Warren may not be the dynamic bucket-getter he used to be, but he certainly deserves a look as a career-revival project.
After bursting onto the scene in the 2020 NBA Bubble, where he averaged 31 points a game in eight games, Warren had a star-crossed couple of seasons. Dealing with injuries, he hasn’t been able to return back to his old self in his last two stints in Brooklyn and Phoenix.
However, he is still only 29 years old and has good size, strength, and scoring ability. He might have slowed down on the defensive end but he could still potentially be a solid off-the-bench scorer. He has the type of isolation and mid-range game that the Wizards severely lack on their roster.
If given playing time and opportunity, Warren could rediscover his footing and be a valuable trade asset for the Wizards. On top of it all, Warren could provide a much-needed veteran presence and mentorship to the young Wizards team.
Warren should also be pretty affordable. The Phoenix Suns may want to keep him because they don’t have financial flexibility or other options, but even an offer above the minimum might be able to entice him, considering he would have a larger role with the Wizards.
