News: Looney's hip issues that plagued him in his lone season at UCLA may require surgery, but the Warriors are going to take their time assessing the rookie's health, NBCSports reports.
Impact: Looney played well at the Las Vegas Summer league, averaging 9.3 points, 0.5 three-pointers, 7.2 rebounds, 1.0 assists, 0.5 steals, and 1.0 block in 20 minutes per game through six games. Jerry West works in the Warriors front office, and during a radio appearance, he talked about the possibility of Looney's hip issues requiring surgery, but for the time being, the Warriors are going to let Looney simply rehab the issue and continue to play through it. West also said that people should temper their expectations for the 19-year-old Looney, saying that the rookie has a lot of development to do before he'll be ready to contribute in the NBA, especially on a team that just won the championship.
News: Kuzmic has signed a contract to play in Greece with Panathinaikos.
Impact: Kuzmic spent the previous two seasons with the Warriors but only made a total of 37 appearances and almost exclusively played in garbage time. Golden State's depth in the frontcourt caused the Serbian to spend considerable time in the D-League and ultimately the team rescinded his qualifying offer in late July which allowed the center to sign abroad.
