After missing the NBA playoffs this season, the Golden State Warriors head into the offseason with many questions about the franchise’s future in the Bay Area and who the team values moving forward.

Although star guard Klay Thompson’s immediate future will be the hot topic of discussion when it comes to the Warriors this summer, a few other veteran players, like Andrew Wiggins and Kevon Looney, have uncertain futures moving forward.

Following a massive regression during the 2023-24 NBA season with the team no longer able to count on him, Wiggins has likely played his last game for the Warriors, as the team is expected to try and move him in a trade this summer.

As for Looney, it seems as though he may get released by the team in order to save money on its tax bill this offseason, according to Tim Kawakami of The Athletic (via Evan Sidery of Forbes).

Kevon Looney will likely be released by the Warriors to save money on their tax bill, per @timkawakami (

Only $3 million of Looney’s $8 million salary is guaranteed until it fully locks in on June 24.

If Looney is released, expect plenty of interest.

Even though the Warriors are expected to make plenty of moves this summer and may have a much different team playing alongside Draymond Green and Stephen Curry next season, losing Looney like this is an unfortunate blow to the roster.

Looney may not be one of the best big men in the game, but he played his role in San Francisco and has played it well ever since the team brought him in with the No. 30 overall pick in the 2015 NBA Draft.

The 28-year-old will no doubt get some calls if the Warriors indeed do release him this month.
