At the end of the day, someone in the Mavs organization doesn't think Warney can play at the NBA level.   I thought it was Carlyle (and maybe it still is), but he made glowing comments for him publicly recently.  Maybe it's the Mavs' GM, maybe it's Cuban.   But Carlyle does carry a lot of weight in the organization.  I hope he gets his shot elsewhere; the Knicks would be a nice destination for Jameel.

Agreed. I wonder if Warney has has option to move into another G league affiliate. He needs to move on with his life..

Or more importantly, does he have the ability to get picked up by another team without the Mavs' approval?  If you read today's news, Harrison is coming over to the Mavs on a 10-day, but he is affiliated with a G-League team other than the Mavs.

Warney played well in the games he was in...why did they bench him for the last 2 games?  I don't think one could ask for any player to have contributed more during the minutes he had.  Definitely a little puzzling...

EDIT: Played well is an understatement...most seasoned players would be hard pressed to put up the #s he did in those limited minutes...let alone a player playing in his first NBA games ever....on a 10 day contract, which adds even more pressure to perform.  I don't see how things could have gone any better.  Hoping he catches on somewhere and really shows what he can do.

I believe if the Mavs don't renew him with at least another 10-day contract he can become a free agent.

He'd be great for the Knicks- young, hardworking talent that is a smart ballplayer.

It's a shame where we are with the NBA where super productive college players continue to get undervalued come draft time and garbage European players become lottery picks.

I am pissed off at the moment thinking about this . I just can't understand for the life of me why Warney sat out the last 2 games. He played well in the minutes he was out on the floor. Hopefully he lands on his feet with a team that will appreciate his basketball IQ and athleticism

Perplexing based on how he played in his 3 games, but my guess is that the club made a decision after 3 games that they were going in another direction with a different guy on the 10-day, and decided not to play him from that point forward.  Professional sports can be ruthless at times.   Hope the kid keeps his chin up, and latches on with another club (this year!).

So, was Carlisle comment about Warney [EDITED]? How do they go from looking for a PF player just to replace him with a G. That is like the Yankees looking for a closer and then they go out and find a 1st baseman..

Either Carlisle was full of it, he was overridden by mgmt, or maybe they were just doing Warney a token solid by bringing him up and exposing him to other teams, given his strong stats for the Legends (and in this instance, maybe they had no plans of keeping him up at all).   The whole thing is quite bizarre especially after producing for the 3 games he was in. Too bad he didn't get to play in front of friends and family at the Barclay Center though.

Talk about emotions swinging from high to low in a span of 10 days.

overall this is a good thing (though, disappointing by any stretch).

warney gets some exposure (and kills it), we get our first player in the big leagues.  he's young and healthy, and there's time.  we can sell recruits on this success.

He showed some Magic-like moves. Playing with attitude, as he should at this point.

Warney in the running for G League MVP:

https://www.ridiculousupside.com/2018/3/22/17148696/ridiculous-upsides-2017-18-nba-g-league-mvp-finalists-blakeney-warney-brown-hilliard-lemon-hunter

If Warney wins MVP and he still doesn't get a call up then i don't know what else is left for him to do to ever play in the NBA again!!!
