Dallas interested in Suns’ T.J. Warren
The Dallas Mavericks are staying active in the offseason. According to a report from ESPN’s Ian Begley, the Mavs are believed to be among the teams that are interested in acquiring forward T.J. Warren from the Phoenix Suns.
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.

The Suns selected Warren, now 25 years of age, with the 14th overall pick in the 2014 NBA Draft. In his 43 appearances with the team last season, the former ACC Player of the Year turned in averages of 18.0 points on 48.6 percent shooting from the field (42.8 percent from beyond the arc), 4.0 rebounds, 1.5 assists and 1.2 steals in 31.6 minutes per outing.
Warren has improved his game with each passing season in the NBA, which is likely why he’s been garnering so much interest from teams around the league. In this past season, he compiled a career-best stretch of five consecutive 20-point games, culminating in a 23-point performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
As Begley noted in his tweet, many NBA insiders still believe that the Suns are open to the thought of trading Warren, as well as Josh Jackson.
Whether or not the Mavs will be able to acquire Warren in a trade with the Suns remains to be seen, but it certainly sounds like there is a high level interest in the idea.
