Warrick, 36, hasn’t played in the NBA since the 2012-13 season, but he’s attempting a comeback in the G League with the Wolves, for whom he’s played 18 games this season. He started for Iowa in a 113-106 victory over the Westchester Knicks on Wednesday at the league’s Winter Showcase at Mandalay Bay Convention Center and is averaging 10.3 points and 5.1 rebounds. “It seemed like the best way to get back. I’ve been contemplating getting back the last couple years, just never did it,” Warrick said of playing in the G League. “This year I put my name in the pool. It’s been a lot better than I expected it to be.”
By professional basketball standards, Warrick, who was the No. 19 pick of the Memphis Grizzlies in 2005, is old. In fact, when he was taken with the No. 9 pick in last month’s G League Draft by the Delaware 87ers, he became the oldest player ever drafted into the G League. He’s now a member of the Iowa Wolves, the Minnesota Timberwolves affiliate. As he attempts to get back into the NBA after several years as a basketball globetrotter, the 6-foot-9 Warrick said he felt the G League — where the average salary is just $35,000 — was his best option. “I’ve been pretty much everywhere and I just never tried [the G League], and I just wanted to at least try it before I was done playing,” Warrick said.
