Oklahoma’s Willie Warren Signs In China

Former Oklahoma star Willie Warren has signed with the Shanxi Brave Dragons in the Chinese Basketball Association (CBA).

 

The 6-4, 203-pound shooting guard comes from Iran where he averaged 22.2 points and 4 rebounds for Petrochimi, leading the team to the 2017 FIBA Asia Champions Cup in Chenzhou.

 

The Champions Cup is the international basketball club tournament of FIBA Asia.

 

Warren also played in the China CBA last season, where he was 10th in scoring and ninth in assists, averaging 29.4 points and 5.8 dimes for Zhejiang.

 

A college star at Oklahoma, Warren led the team in scoring at 16.3 points a game as a sophomore before entering the 2010 NBA Draft.

 

A second round pick by the Los Angeles Clippers, Warren averaged 1.9 points and 1.4 assists with the Clips in 2010-11, his only NBA season.

 

Warren, a McDonald’s All-American in high school, averaged 24.9 points for North Crowley H.S. (Fort Worth, TX) as a senior, leading the team to a 38-1 record and the school’s first 5A state championship.

 

He has also played in the NBA G League, and overseas in Italy on a Granarolo Bologna team with former college stars Dwight Hardy (St. John’s) and Matt Walsh (Florida).

 

In China, Warren will be joining a Shanxi team that has been led this season by top scorers Brandon Jennings (27.8ppg) and Luis Scola (26.7ppg), who both played in the NBA last year.
