Warriors re-signing Kevon Looney, losing more members of NBA Finals rotation…4:26 PM
Kylen Mills @KylenMills
I honestly expected Kevon Looney to get more, interesting the Warriors squeezed him while letting Gary Payton II & Otto Porter Jr walk. Now they need to find equal replacements for their #7 & #8 bench players who contributed huge mins to the championship run. #dubnation4:08 PM

Warriors bringing back Kevon Looney on three-year, $25.5 million deal PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
The Kevon Looney deal, per those in the know, was as much about him wanting to stay as the Warriors wanting to keep him. Mutual interest.
To quote the words of Shaun Livingston when he re-signed a few years ago: ‘You can’t put a price on happiness.’ – 3:16 PM

Can confirm that Kevon Looney will be back with the Warriors next season on a three-year, $25.5M deal. @Adrian Wojnarowski was first. – 3:11 PM
Marc Stein @TheSteinLine
Some rival teams were projecting Kevon Looney to return to the Warriors at 3/30 or even 4/40. For Golden State to retain him at $8+ million annually is another win for the reigning champs.

Adrian Wojnarowski @wojespn
Free agent center Kevon Looney has agreed to a three-year, $25.5M deal to return to Golden State, sources tell ESPN. – 2:57 PM
Dalton Johnson @DaltonJ_Johnson
I don’t think the Warriors are going to find two players who fit them better than Kevon Looney and Gary Payton II. Golden State still feels like the perfect fit for them, too – 1:29 AM
Anthony Slater @anthonyVslater
The Warriors are still apart in free agency negotiations with Kevon Looney and Gary Payton II. There is still an expectation Looney will return, but internal belief is growing that Payton could leave the Warriors.

Best remaining FAs: James Harden, Deandre Ayton, Zach LaVine, Miles Bridges, Kevon Looney, Jusuf Nurkic, Bruce Brown, TJ Warren, Colin Sexton, Mitchell Robinson, Gary Payton, Otto Porter, M. Harrell, Andre Drummond, D. DiVencenzo, Caleb & Cody Martin.…9:16 PM

On Kevon Looney, Isaiah Hartenstein, Mo Bamba and other bigs the Suns should target with the MLE (which might be more relevant if KD happens and Deandre Ayton is sign-and-traded away): PM
