T.J. Warren returning to Suns in trade from Brooklyn

The Phoenix Suns are acquiring small forward T.J. Warren from the Brooklyn Nets.

What It Means:

Warren is joining Kevin Durant in a deadline deal as he returns to the team that selected him with the No. 14 pick in the 2014 draft. The Suns sent Mikal Bridges and Cam Johnson to Brooklyn in the trade, so Warren will help provide some forward depth to make up for those departures. Dario Saric, Torrey Craig, Josh Okogie, and Damion Lee will likely be Warren's primary competition for playing time.

Warren averaged 16.4 FanDuel points in 18.9 minutes per game for the Nets this season. His 21.0% usage rate was fifth on the team.
