Warrick needs no introduction for what he accomplished at Syracuse and will once again suit up for Boeheim’s Army. He turned back the hands of time last summer, throwing down a pair of vintage dunks that were reminiscent of his time playing for the Orange. Warrick spent last season playing in the NBA G-League for the Iowa Wolves. He averaged 12 points per game on 61.3% shooting from the field, plus 5.8 rebounds and 1.9 assists per game.
After being selected as a first round pick by the Memphis Grizzlies in 2005, Warrick went on to play eight seasons in the NBA. He averaged 9.4 points and four boards per game while suiting up for the Grizz, Milwaukee Bucks, Chicago Bulls, Phoenix Suns, then-New Orleans Hornets and then-Charlotte Bobcats.
“Hakim is great to have for obvious reasons but I enjoy coaching him because of his veteran presence,” head coach Ryan Blackwell told TNIAAM. “He’s very easy going, he has a great IQ and it’s almost like having another coach out on the floor and during practices. He played extremely well during our run last year and had a great season again in the G League so I know he’ll be ready this summer.”
With Warrick in the fold, the Boeheim’s Army roster is now at six. Earlier this week Chris McCullough, Eric Devendorf, Brandon Triche, Michael Gbinije and John Gillon were all announced as well, along with Blackwell’s return as coach.
Boeheim’s Army will compete in Syracuse this summer on July 26-28 at the SRC Arena at OCC.
