In the 2019 playoffs, Kevon Looney absolutely erupted onto the scene. He was defending at a high level, making plays on the offensive glass and shooting a highly efficient percentage from the field. This was a series of breakout performances for Looney.
Following the team’s fifth straight Finals, Looney decided to re-sign with Golden State, likely taking a pay cut from his other options. That said, Looney will have trade value at the deadline given his salary and youth.
With Willie Cauley-Stein in the frontcourt and playing a similar position, if the Warriors could couple Looney with another asset for a player like Robert Covington, they’d almost half to trade the big man.
Looney averaged 6.3 points on 62.5% from the field. He upped that to 7.1 points on 68.8% from the field in the postseason. Looney took his game to the next level and increased his value along the way.
