Golden State Warriors extend Kevon Looney and grab Donte DiVincenzo

The Golden State Warriors have already lost some players from their champion team in free agency, but there was an agreement with Kevon Looney on Friday. The champion also secured the services of Donte DiVincenzo.

ESPN Looney will earn $25.5 million with the Warriors over the next three years. The center enjoyed priority among his own free agents at San Francisco, having played all 82 regular-season games and all 22 playoff games last season and was a key player in several series in the postseason.

During the playoffs, the 25-year-old, who has been playing for the Warriors since 2015, averaged 5.8 points and 7.6 rebounds. Game 6 against the Grizzlies was particularly strong, when he got 22 rebounds (playoff career high) or the second game against Dallas, in which he had 21 points and 12 rebounds.

While Looney has been held, the Warriors have lost Nemanja Bjelica (Fenerbahce), Damion Lee (Phoenix), Juan Toscano-Anderson (Lakers), Otto Porter Jr. (Toronto) and Gary Payton II (Portland) in free agency to date. Porter and Payton in particular also played big roles during the postseason.
