The Indiana Pacers announced Saturday they have acquired T.J. Warren from the Phoenix Suns in exchange for cash considerations. As part of the three-team deal that included the Miami Heat, the Pacers also acquired the 32nd pick in the 2019 NBA Draft, which was subsequently sent to the Heat in exchange for three future second round draft picks. “T.J. is a hybrid player in his prime; and he still has plenty of room to grow, which makes him the perfect addition to our team,” said Pacers President of Basketball Operations Kevin Pritchard. “He’s a unique scorer, in that he can post up, he can make plays off the bounce and he’s really improved his shooting. He’s a really polished scorer and we are happy to have him.”
Elhassan certainly is not one to hold back in criticizing the Suns’ organization, but this information appeared to come from the Pacers’ side or from a third party who heard about the Suns’ negotiations to trade Warren. “What I heard was when Indiana got the call, ‘Hey we’ll give you T.J. and the 32nd pick,’ the Pacers thought it was a joke, they didn’t think this was a serious offer,” Elhassan said on The Burns & Gambo Show. “And when they realized it was, (Indiana said) ‘OK it has to get done now, because we’re not going to wait for you to figure out the mistake that you’re making here.’”
Jones also said TJ Warren and Josh Jackson are in good standings with the Suns amid reports they’re on the trading block. NBA sources have told The Republic the Suns aren’t looking to trade the two players. “I don’t respond to rumors,” Jones said. “If it was my comment, I’d respond to it. Like anything around this time of the year, everyone wants to create a story. There’s no stories here.”
Storyline: Josh Jackson Trade?
On Monday, The Athletic reported Warren, Jackson and the No. 6 overall pick were on the trading block, which isn’t surprising. However, NBA sources told The Republic that the two players and the Suns’ first-round pick weren’t available. Warren and Jackson were in trade news before the Feb. 7 trade deadline, but NBA sources told The Republic at the time neither were on the block.

Warren would feel even better if he was preparing to play for tonight’s matchup against Houston, but this will be the 21st consecutive game he’s missed with what Phoenix has called right ankle soreness. As Warren confirmed after shootaround, it’s more than that. “Mentally, it’s been tough,” Warren said. “It’s one of those things that’s kind of tricky. It’s like a bone bruise. Sometimes you feel it. Sometimes, it gets better. Sometimes it doesn’t. It’s one of those things that’s on or off. I just want to make sure I’m myself before I’m back.”

Warren said it’s not like last season’s offense that finished 21st in the league in scoring at 103.9 points a game under Earl Watson and Jay Triano. “Last year was more stagnant,” Warren said. “A lot of ball-dominant pick and rolls.” Warren said this season’s offense under Kokoskov is more drive and kick with an emphasis on passing or shooting in “two seconds or less.” Let Kokoskov expand on that. “No mental mistakes,” he said. “Make quick decision. Catch to shoot. Catch to drive. Catch to pass and put ’em in a blender. Multiple ball handlers. Great spacing. Get in the lane. Share the ball. Play unselfish.”
TJ Warren: Salute to my Brotha @realdwest30. Let me first say hell of a career, you gave not only Garner Road but the city of Raleigh the blueprint of how to turn dreams into reality, and that meant more to me than you’ll ever know. For the past 12 years you showed me what it meant to be a consummate pro. From all of our workouts and the knowledge you would give me all the way to you being at my draft table on the biggest night of my life, you were there for me and those moments meant more to me than words could ever express. Your legacy extends far beyond the game of basketball. 15 years of being in the NBA, but a lifetime of being a real one. Enjoy life, Champ.
T.J. Warren scored 27 points to lead six Phoenix players in double figures and the Suns handed the Bulls their sixth loss in seven games, 113-105 on Sunday night. Rookie Lauri Markkanen, the former University of Arizona standout, scored a career-best 26 points for the Bulls in a matchup of the NBA’s youngest teams. The Suns had a season-high 32 assists on 45 baskets. Their season best had been 28 in each of the previous two games. “We’re moving from side to side and everybody’s touching the ball,” Warren said. “Everybody’s getting the ball.”
