The Suns, per Wojnarowski, also sent Indiana the No. 32 pick in Thursday’s NBA draft. In return, the Pacers sent the Suns cash.
Warren averaged 18 points and four rebounds in 43 games for the Suns last season, his fifth in the league, and shot nearly 43 percent from the 3-point line. A bone bruise in his right ankle sidelined him for the final 33 games of the year.
The 25-year-old, who the Suns picked up with the No. 14 overall pick in the 2014 NBA draft, signed a four-year, $50 million extension in 2017. He is still owed nearly $35 million over three years on that deal, which the Suns wanted to unload to create cap space.
The trade, according to ESPN’s Bobby Marks, will be finalized on July 6 after the Pacers have room to absorb him. Indiana now holds three picks in the NBA draft, Nos. 18, 32 and 50, and will still have about $31 million in cap space.
The Suns, less than an hour later, traded the No. 6 overall pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves for forward Dario Saric and the No. 11 overall pick.
