NBA Rumors: Warriors Assign Kevon Looney to G League in Santa Cruz

Kevon Looney reportedly is headed to Surf City.

Golden State assigned the big man to its G League affiliate in Santa Cruz, a source told Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

Looney is not expected to play in any games for Santa Cruz, a source told Connor Letourneau of The San Francisco Chronicle.

Looney played in the Warriors' season opener but then was shut down because of a neuropathy condition.

On Nov. 6, the Warriors announced that they "are hopeful and encouraged that the treatment plan prescribed for him will allow Kevon to return to action in the near future. An update on his expected return-to-play timeline will be provided in two weeks."

Wednesday will be the official two-week mark, so it's unclear if there will be another update provided then.

Santa Cruz's next game is Thursday at 7pm PT on NBC Sports Bay Area.

Looney made 12 appearances for the Sea Dubs in 2015-16, and four in 2016-17.
