Warney is expected to sign a 10-day contract with the Mavericks in the coming few days, Marc Stein of the New York Times reports. Warney has been an absolute force in the G-League this season, playing in 37 games with the Legends, while posting averages of 20.3 points, 9.6 rebounds, 2.8 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks across 35.1 minutes. It'll mark a well-deserved promotion to the big league once the move becomes official, though Warney will still likely struggle see very many minutes most nights and isn't expected to be a viable fantasy commodity. The 6-foot-7 forward out of Stony Brook could be available as soon as Saturday's matchup with the Grizzlies as long as everything is finalized in time.
Warney provided 18 points (8-21 FG, 0-3 3Pt, 2-3 FT), 11 rebounds, two assists and one steal during Thursday's win at Salt Lake City. The Stony Brook product was able to get back into the double-double category Thursday after a two-game absence. Warney is currently averaging impressive numbers with 19.5 points and 9.8 rebounds per contest. Scoring in double-digits in every game thus far, the 24-year-old is not just a valuable contributor to the Legends, but also as a fantasy commodity as well.
Warney was waived by the Mavericks on Saturday. The Mavericks trimmed their roster Saturday with Opening Night looming. Warney, who was signed Friday, could find himself signing with the Mavericks' G-League affiliate after spending last season with the club and averaging a strong 17.3 points per game.
Warney signed with the Mavericks on Friday, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Warney was likely signed for the purpose of ultimately ending up on the Mavericks' G-League affiliate, the Texas Legends. Warney played 44 games for the Legends last season and averaged 17.3points, 8.0 rebounds and 1.4 assists across 29.2 minutes per game. Dallas waived forward Brandon Ashley to create a roster spot for Warney.
Warney was waived by the Mavericks on Sunday, Earl K. Sneed of Mavs.com reports. Warney earned a training camp invite from the Mavericks after playing well with their summer league team, but was always considered a long shot to make their regular season roster. He'll likely start the 2016-17 campaign in the NBA D-League and could very well remain with the Mavericks' D-League affiliate, the Texas Legends.
