Kevon Looney is returning to the Golden State Warriors on a three-year, $15 million deal, agent Todd Ramasar told ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.
Looney proved vital for the Warriors in the playoffs, as he filled an important role in Golden State’s rotation after starting center DeMarcus Cousins went down with an injury in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs.
Looney suffered an injury of his own in Game 2 of the NBA Finals but returned in Game 4 and played through visible discomfort the rest of the series.
The 23-year-old’s return to the Bay Area is good news for the Warriors, who lost center Jordan Bell to the Minnesota Timberwolves in free agency, a league source confirmed to ESPN.
Looney was taken with the 30th overall pick out of the University of California by the Warriors in the 2015 NBA draft.
He averaged 6.3 points and 5.2 rebounds in 18.5 minutes per game last season.
