The Dallas Mavericks will reportedly not re-sign forward Jameel Warney, whose 10-day contract comes to an end today. Warney played in three games as a Maverick, averaging nine minutes and 5.7 points per game on 58.3 percent shooting.
Prior to joining the Mavericks, Warney spent two seasons with the team’s G-League affiliate the Texas Legends, where he averaged an impressive 19.8 points, 9.5 rebounds, 2.9 assists, 1.2 steals and 1.2 blocks per game.
Rather than re-signing Warney, the Mavericks are expected to sign Aaron Harrison, who currently plays in the G-League for the Reno Bighorns:
As the Mavericks near the end of Jameel Warney’s 10-day contract, league sources say Dallas is lining up a 10-day deal next with Aaron Harrison of the @nbagleague’s Reno Bighorns— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) March 20, 2018
Harrison has played 40 games for the Bighorns, where he’s averaged 18.7 points on 43.6 percent shooting (42.5 percent from deep), 4.4 rebounds, 1.6 assists and one steal. Harrison has bounced around the G-League since 2015, including stints with the Greensboro Swarm and the Delaware 87ers.
This won’t be Harrison’s first NBA experience. He previously spent time with the Charlotte Hornets in the 2016 and 2017 seasons, where he played in 26 games.
