For Warren, the agreement represents long-term financial security based on several factors, including his run of injuries as a pro and what appears to be shaping up to be a treacherous market devoid of salary-cap space for restricted free agents next summer.
Bobby Marks: Phoenix now has a projected $94M in salary with 14 players under contract for 2018-19. The salary cap is projected to be $102M.
Adrian Wojnarowski: Phoenix Suns forward TJ Warren has agreed to a four-year, $50M contract extension, league sources tell ESPN.
TJ Warren would have had a free agent cap hold of $9.5M next summer had he not signed a $50M rookie extension. The new extension will only see Phoenix lose $2M in cap space.

At the NBA Global Camp this month, Kulboka scored 15 points on eight shots in a five-on-five scrimmage. Don’t expect to see him in a Hornets jersey in the near future, though. “He’s got a buyout that’s manageable, but we’ve talked to his representative …” Kupchak said. “At least right now, the plan is to keep him over there and hopefully watch him develop and then, when he’s ready, bring him back over here and see how good he is.”
Mike Vorkunov: Kevin Knox might start as a rookie but he won’t get that job for free. Fizdale: “I’m not handing out nothing. Everything will be earned. We’re going to have a super young team. Why disrupt the culture by handing something to a kid? Make him earn everything along the way.” #knicks
Someone out there was willing to pay $23,548 for the jersey that J.R. Smith was wearing during the Cavaliers’ devastating Game 1 overtime loss to the Warriors in the NBA Finals. You know, the game where Smith made that heartbreaking mistake, not realizing the Cavs were not winning in the last seconds of regulation. NBA Auctions put the jersey up on June 1 and closed it on Thursday. The crazy jump in price happened from Monday to Thursday when it began climbing from $2,160 to more than $23,000.
