Milwaukee Bucks’ reclamation project No. 5 – T.J. Warren
After playing a combined four games over the prior two seasons, T.J. Warren returned to the court. He didn’t look like the player who was scoring 50 points in the NBA Bubble or averaging more than 15 points per game over his previous four seasons, but that was to be expected following a tough injury like his. Warren will now hit the free agent market, and the Bucks should give him a shot.
One of the Bucks’ biggest issues over the past few years has been a lack of reliable scorers and shot-creators in the supporting cast. Warren would help in this department. The forward was a reliable scorer prior to his injuries and was still decent this past season, averaging 7.5 points per game on 48.9 percent shooting in a minimal role. The Bucks could use another quality scorer off the bench, and Warren would help. Not to mention that he’d be another 6-foot-8 wing for them to utilize and keep that rotation stocked.
At 29 years of age, Warren is still fairly young. He’d be among the younger players on Milwaukee’s roster right now and still has something left to give. If he can spend the off-season getting healthy and getting back to his pre-injury form, he could be an excellent addition to any bench brigade in the NBA. If the Bucks can snag him for cheap in NBA free agency, they absolutely should.
