Best Offer Vs. Winning — Kevon Looney Will Be Thinking About This in Free Agency

Back in late October, the Warriors declined Kevon Looney's fourth-year option.

This means that Looney will be an unrestricted free agent in July.

The most Golden State can offer the 22-year old is about $2.23 million (the amount his option was worth).

"They always tell me if somebody comes and gives me a better offer, you should take it. But this is a team where it's all about winning," Looney recently told Mark Medina of the Bay Area News Group. "I'd love to be here and be a part of this.

"It's something to think about, for sure."

From Oct. 17 through March 6, Looney appeared in 49 of the Warriors' 64 games.

He averaged 2.9 points, 2.8 rebounds and 0.6 blocks in 11.0 minutes per contest.

From March 8 through Sunday's win in Phoenix, Looney appeared in 16 of the Warriors' 17 games and made four starts.

He is averaging 7.1 points, 4.6 rebounds and 1.7 blocks in 22 minutes per contest.

Will another team (or teams) offer Looney a contract worth significantly more than $2.23 million?

Check back in July...
