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.’”
“A deal for T.J. Warren was available to them at an earlier date that did not include them giving a pick, but may have included them getting a pick for him,” Elhassan said, later mentioning that deal was there near the 2019 trade deadline.
Ian Begley: The Dallas Mavericks are among the teams who have expressed interest in obtaining Phoenix’s T.J. Warren via trade, per SNY sources. Opposing teams remain under the belief that Phoenix is open to moving Warren and Josh Jackson, as The Athletic reported.
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.”
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.

Duane Rankin: “He’s still rehabbing. He did even more conditioning yesterday. He’s close to getting back and playing.” Igor Kokoskov on if #Suns are shutting down TJ Warren. Hasn’t played since Jan. 22 with right ankle soreness/bruise. Will miss 29th straight game tonight vs. #Cavs. #Suns

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’s been out since Jan. 22 when he reinjured it in the first half of a loss to Minnesota. Those bruises have been known to take up to two months to heal. “I just want to make sure I’m all the way back,” Warren added. Warren also made it clear he wants to play before the season ends. The Suns will have 12 games left after Friday’s game.

Duane Rankin: “Shut him down.” Igor Kokoskov. That’s the plan for TJ Warren moving forward with sore right ankle. Plans to sit him for “one, two weeks.” #Suns
Gerald Bourguet: T.J. Warren will not return to tonight’s game due to a sore left ankle, per Suns PR
Duane Rankin: #Suns having open session for season ticket holders after having practice on the practice court. Looks like everybody is out here except TJ Warren. Played last night, but stepped on someone’s foot during the previous practice and left it early.

Jeff Zillgitt: Suns forward T.J. Warren fined $15,000 by the NBA for “directing inappropriate language toward a game official.” Happened in second quarter of Monday’s Suns-Clippers game.
Duane Rankin: Igor Kokoskov said he has a limit restriction on TJ Warren coming back from the ankle injury, but didn’t give the number when asked. “They shouldn’t know.” I’m thinking 15, 20 minutes. Kokoskov also said how the game goes won’t impact his minutes. We’ll see about that. #Suns
Gina Mizell: Personnel newsy bits from #Suns practice * T.J. Warren is expected to play limited minutes tomorrow vs. Clippers * Deandre Ayton missed practice with flu-like symptoms, Igor said. * Devin Booker did some recovery stuff during today’s practice but is OUT tomorrow.
Anthony Chiang: Devin Booker (hamstring), T.J. Warren (ankle) and Trevor Ariza (sore left knee) all out for Suns tonight vs. Heat.
Gina Mizell: Per #Suns, T.J. Warren (ankle) is officially listed as doubtful to play tomorrow at Lakers and Devin Booker (toe) is listed as probable.
Gina Mizell: Late scratch: Devin Booker is also OUT tonight vs. Orlando with a left toe injury. T.J. Warren is also out with ankle soreness. #Suns
Gina Mizell: T.J. Warren is not a man of many words. But he just got T’d up twice and has been ejected from the game. He was upset after being called for an offensive foul to erase a transition layup. Pistons lead the #Suns 52-45 with 3:56 left before the half.
Duane Rankin: TJ Warren will get the start over Ryan Anderson tonight vs. Boston, says Igor Kokoskov. Warren played in Tuesday’s loss, but didn’t score aftee missing Memphis game with back spasms. Said starting Warren based on matchups, but Anderson didn’t score against Brooklyn, either.
Gina Mizell: T.J. Warren (back spasms) is out for the #Suns tonight. Ryan Anderson will start in his place at PF alongside Canaan, Booker, Ariza and Ayton
Welcome to Kokoskov’s creative, free-flowing offense filled with multiple options and reads that has the Suns all excited. “It’s a fun way to play and I feel like everybody is going to enjoy playing that way,” Suns forward T.J. Warren said.
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.

Scott Bordow: No official injury report, but T.J. Warren didn’t practice and was limping pretty noticeably on sprained left knee. Can’t imagine he’ll play Tuesday. Booker said he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to go. Limited participant in practice today.

Scott Bordow: Marquese Chriss (hip) did not practice and is out for Denver. Might be getting a second MRI. TJ Warren (back) practiced and is expected to start
Gerald Bourguet: T.J. Warren picks up his 2nd technical and gets tossed. For a guy who doesn’t talk much, he had a lot to say there. #SunsAtRaptors
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.”
