TJ Warren's 4-year, $50M deal is an absolute steal for the Suns. Take a look at some of the 4-year deals players got the past 2 years: pic.twitter.com/4u8Au4g6GK— Phoenix Suns Insider (@InsiderSuns) September 26, 2017
The deal is expected to be worth $50 million across four years. While many might think that he is overpaid, if you look at other similar contracts across the league this ones a steal. Warren averaged 14.4 PPG, 5.1 RPG, and and 1.2 SPG last season for the Suns.
He’s been probably our most consistent two-way player and our best scorer in terms of efficiency, and just being able to get a bucket to stop an opposing run or to start a run of our own in the halfcourt.

Warren came on strong last season after the all-star break once P.J. Tucker was sent to the Raptors. It will be interesting to see how he fits in to the lineup with the addition of Josh Jackson in the draft,
