Looney proved to be a dependable defender for the Warriors last season and became more reliable as the year went on. He was so impressive, he garnered interest from a number of teams including the Celtics, Rockets and Bulls.
In his fourth season with Golden State, he recorded a career best 6.3 points per game and shot a career high 62.5% from the field.
Looney suffered a scary injury in the NBA Finals after sustaining a fracture near his chest and ribcage in Game 2 against Toronto. He was originally ruled out for the series, but he surprisingly returned in Game 4 before re-aggravating the injury. He returned briefly for Game 5 and started in Game 6.
Even after suffering the injury, he exceeded expectations in the playoffs.
Looney outdid his regular-season marks by averaging 7.1 points and 4.5 rebounds in 21 postseason games.
