The Golden State Warriors announced Tuesday they have assigned forwards Kevon Looney and Alen Smailagić to the Santa Cruz Warriors.
Looney, 23, has appeared in 16 career games–one start–with Santa Cruz during the 2015-16 and 2016-17 NBA G League seasons. He logged 10.5 points, 8.4 rebounds, 0.7 assists and 0.94 blocks in 19.3 minutes per game.
Smailagić played in 47 games for the Santa Cruz Warriors during the 2018-19 NBA G League season, averaging 9.1 points, 4.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 17.4 minutes.
Looney, who was the 30th overall selection by Golden State in 2015, has appeared in one game this season. He missed the last 13 games due to a neuropathy condition.
Looney has averaged 4.5 points, 3.8 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 14.0 minutes over 205 career games–33 starts–with Golden State.
Smailagić was drafted in the second round–39th overall–by the New Orleans Pelicans in the 2019 NBA Draft. He was acquired by Golden State in exchange for the team’s 2021 and 2023 second round picks along with cash considerations.
The 6-foot-11 forward from Belgrade, Serbia has yet to appear in an NBA game this season due to a right ankle sprain.
The Warriors will host the Northern Arizona Suns at Kaiser Permanente Arena Thursday at 7 p.m.
