2022 Free Agency

Warriors sign Kevon Looney, free-agent guard Donte DiVincenzo to deals

Golden State is keeping its star center in the mix and adds the free-agent guard DiVincenzo on a reported 2-year deal.

Kevon Looney is expected to return to Golden State on a 3-year deal.

The Golden State Warriors have signed center Kevon Looney and free-agent guard Donte DiVincenzo, the team announced. According to multiple reports. Looney is expected to return to Golden State on a three-year, $25.5 million deal, while DiVincenzo joins the defending champs on a reported two-year deal worth $9.3 million.

Looney, 26, played a vital role for the Warriors last season and through their 2022 championship run. He appeared in all 82 regular-season games in 2021-22, averaging 6.0 points, 7.3 rebounds (career-best) and 2.0 assists while becoming one of just five players to go all 82 games — and 104 straight counting the postseason run. The 6-foot-9 center averaged 5.8 points and a sensational 7.7 rebounds in the postseason – including a playoff career-high 22 boards against Memphis in Game 6 of the Western Conference semifinals series. He started all five conference finals games against Dallas then the first three of the Warriors’ six-game Finals victory against the Celtics.

DiVincenzo, who was part of a 4-team trade that sent him from Milwaukee to Sacramento in February, averaged 10.3 points, 4.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists in 25 games for the Kings in 2021-22.
