Golden State Warriors pick up Donte DiVincenzo, renew Looney, but lose two more pieces

I Golden State Warriors next season will have a very different face than the one with which they won the title last month. The Dubs have already seen Gary Payton II (Blazers), Juan Toscano-Anderson (Lakers) and Otto Porter Jr (Raptors) leave in free agency in the early hours of the market, tonight they then also lost Damion Lee e Nemanja Bjelica. Lee, by the way Steph Curry’s brother-in-law, agreed to a one-year deal, probably at minimum wage, with the Phoenix Suns. Bjelica shocked everyone and decided to return to Europe, signing with Fenerbah├že. The Serbian forward had already played with the yellow and blue before the NBA, winning the Euroleague MVP in 2015.

But there are fortunately more than just departures: the Warriors have confirmed Kevon Looney, a key player in winning the title, with a three-year, $25.5 million total deal. The center will continue to represent Golden State’s “historic” group along with Curry, Thompson and Green. Then the Dubs got their hands on Donte DiVincenzo on a two-year, $9.3 million deal. The Italian-American comes from a very bad season, back from injury, with Milwaukee and Sacramento jerseys: for him 9.0 points, 4.2 rebounds and 2.8 assists average in 42 games.
