Awesome! That's a great cap friendly deal for a quality big and the most consistent 6th man for the Ws last season.

I think they are really going to need his brand of defensive basketball with Russell now. Very important signing, a guy that can bring value and not need shots is helpful. My fantasy team hopes they play him high 20 minutes and by the looks of their team they will need to.

The Warriors perimeter defense is in utter shambles without Klay, Iggy and KD.

Some are getting overpaid. Bobby Portis, Taj Gibson come to mind.

If Looney develops even one iota of a jump shot he's gonna out play that contract immediately. As it stands it almost feels like a bro deal. WTF? Fools getting paid all over the place and Kevon couldn't leverage for a little more cake?
