The Golden State Warriors fully guaranteed center Kevon Looney's $8 million contract for next season, multiple outlets reported Monday.

Before Monday's action, only $3 million was guaranteed for 2024-25 for the three-time NBA champion.

Looney, 28, averaged 4.5 points, 5.7 rebounds, 1.8 assists and 16.1 minutes in 74 games (36 starts) in 2023-24.

He has averaged 5.0 points and 5.6 rebounds in 523 games (256 starts) over nine seasons with Golden State.

The Warriors drafted Looney in the first round (30th overall) in 2015 and he has developed into a leader in their locker room.
