Kevon Looney, after a terrific playoff series against the Houston Rockets in the 2019 Western Conference Semifinals, was valued enough to be offered a contract above a minimum value. Looney accepted the offer and will be under contract until after the 2021-2022 season.
He signed for three years and will make $15 million over that timeframe. It wasn’t an insane contract, but the Warriors knew they needed to offer something reasonable to keep him in the Bay Area.
After a season in which he was hurt most of and unproductive when on the court, Looney could be on the hot seat.
The Dubs former first-round pick in 2015, Looney played in 20 games this season and averaged 3.4 points per game on under 37% from the field. It was clear though that Looney wasn’t at 100% even when on the court.
One of the only players not on a minimum salary due to the four Warriors on max-value contracts, if the team feels they can replace Looney with Marquese Chriss or James Wiseman, they may look to save the money and deal the big man.
