Phoenix, AZ (SportsNetwork.com) - First-round draft picks T.J. Warren and Tyler Ennis signed with the Phoenix Suns on Friday.
Warren, taken 14th overall out of North Carolina State, earned Atlantic Coast Conference Player of the Year honors last year and ranked third in the nation with 24.9 points per game. The 21-year-old forward scored a team-high 17.8 points per game with Phoenix's Summer League team in Las Vegas this year.
Ennis left Syracuse after his freshman year and was selected 18th overall. He averaged 12.9 points and 5.5 points assists, while ranking second in the nation with a 3.60 assist-to-turnover ratio.
