Kevon Looney, one of the biggest surprises of the Warriors season, faces quite the predicament now that the confetti has fallen.

The small-ball center can stick with the Warriors for about $2.3 million or try his luck on the open mark.

After the Championship Parade in Oakland on Tuesday, Looney joined Chris Townsend, Matt Steinmetz and Daryle “The Guru” Johnson on 95.7 The Game to discuss how he’s approaching his first crack at free agency.

“I mean, this is my first time experiencing it, so I’m just trying to listen to people around me,” Looney said on 95.7 The Game. “I’ve got some great vets on this team to talk to that have been through this situation that I’m going to lean on and my agents and stuff like that and do what’s best for me.”

“But this has been a great team for me. I have a chance to play on this team and win a championship every year. So that’s something that’s hard to turn down. (It’s) the team that drafted me. So, they’ve all got a special place in my heart.”

“So, it’s going to be tough this summer. Whatever happens happens and I’m just going to do what’s best.”
