It has been a long time coming, but Texas Legend standout, Jameel Warney, is finally getting his shot in the NBA. According to sources to Marc Stein of the New York Times, the Mavs intend to sign Warney to a 10-day contract.
Jameel Warney, a 24-year-old undrafted big man out of Stony Brook, has spent two seasons with the Texas Legends. Warney originally received a camp invite with the Mavericks in 2016 but was cut before the beginning of the season.
Warney is only 24 years old, so he could contribute to the rebuild process going on in Dallas, should he prove himself worthy during his 10-day deal. At 6’7, 259 pounds, he is slightly undersized at power forward; but his aggression down low and on the boards more than makes up for it.
Maverick fans have seen 10-days pan out in the recent past. Last year, Yogi Ferrell took the NBA by storm and quickly signed a longer-term deal with the team. He remains a vital piece off the bench for Dallas. More recently, Kyle Collinsworth was given a three-year deal with the Mavericks after a successful 10-day stunt as well.
Dallas must wait until Scotty Hopson’s current 10-day contract expires to make room Jameel Warney. However, Warney is expected to join the Mavericks for their road trip to the east against New York and Brooklyn next week.
