The Phoenix Suns deal with T.J. Warren and number 32 picked the NBA draft for the Indiana Pacers on Thursday, a league source ESPN said.
The Pacers will send cash to the Suns, according to a league source. Phoenix wanted to dump the three years and the remaining $ 35 million for Warren's deal to create room for salary caps.
Warren scored an average of 18.0 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.5 assists in 43 games last season as he dramatically improved his shooting. He shot 28% out of the 3-point area in his first four years in the league, but improved to 43% last season, the eighth best percentage in the NBA among players with at least 100 attempts.
Trading will not be completed until July 6, when the Pacers have cap space to absorb Warren. Indiana will have barely $ 31
Phoenix will have $ 21 million in space, which would increase to $ 29.5 million if The Suns refuse to re-sign Kelly Oubre Jr., which is a restricted free agent.
