T.J. Warren has a ton to prove heading into the 2022-23 NBA season. While he’s always shown an ability to score, averaging double-digit points since his second year in the league, Warren has also found himself on the injury report more times than he would like.
After playing in just 87 of the 162 regular season games available to him during his first two seasons, Warren had put together back-to-back seasons of playing in at least 65 games. With more time on the court, Warren quickly proved that he was one of the league’s best-kept secrets, averaging as much as 19.6 points per game.
Ultimately, the past two years have been tough to stomach for the explosive forward. After playing in only four games during the 2020-21 NBA season, Warren missed the entire 2021-22 league year due to more health concerns. As Warren now waits to see if anyone will offer him a contract, he should consider signing a somewhat paltry deal with the Clippers.
Although LA has a stacked roster, Warren would benefit from one on one assignments on the offensive end. Also, considering that he’s played in only one playoff series in his career, Warren isn’t exactly viewed as a winning player. On the Clippers, Warren could join a championship-laden roster. If the Clippers win it all this upcoming season or at least make a deep playoff run, Warren will be viewed incredibly differently.
