Willie D. Warren (born October 22, 1989) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna.

High school and college[edit]

After a successful high school career at North Crowley High School, Warren was selected to be a McDonalds All-American. He then went to the University of Oklahoma to play on the same team as his later teammate on the Clippers, Blake Griffin. After a successful year, Warren wanted to play another year, even though Griffin would not be there with him. Throughout his second year he averaged over 16 points, 4 assists and 3 rebounds while shooting above 30% from 3-point range and getting just over 1 steal a game. However after the successful second year, he decided to skip the last two years of college, get an agent, and declare for the 2010 NBA Draft.

2010 NBA Draft[edit]

Warren was drafted late in the 2nd round as the 54th overall by the Los Angeles Clippers on the day of the 2010 NBA Draft. Then, on July 13, 2010, unlike many other late second-round picks, he was signed by the Clippers.[1]

NBA and NBA D-League[edit]

Later in the season, head coach of the Los Angeles Clippers, Vinny Del Negro decided to see what Warren could do in the NBA D-League. So, he played 6 games in 2011 for the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA D-League where he averaged 21.0 points, 7.0 assists, 5.3 rebounds and 1.0 steals per game while shooting above 50 percent from the field and 46 percent from 3-point range. The Jam went 5-1 with Warren in the lineup from February 4 – 16. After the D-League stint, Warren was called back into the Clippers' line-up, but he was later re-assigned for a second stint on March 2, 2011.[2]

On December 19, 2011, Warren was waived by the Clippers.[3]

In August 2012, Warren signed with Maccabi Rishon LeZion of the Israeli Basketball Super League for the 2012–13 season.[4]

In the summer of 2013, he signed with Szolnoki Olaj KK of Hungary.[5] He was waived on February 28, 2014.[6]

In March 2013, he signed with Virtus Pallacanestro Bologna.[7]
