Default 2000 saturn ls2 timing tensioner

i have a 2000 ls2 3.0 liter l81 engine and the rear timing tensioner basically exploded while i was driving down the road and i have been doing some research and am getting mixed answers on if the engine is interference or not because a tensioner kit and belt run about $160, so im basically asking if this is a case where the valves would have got bent from clapping the pistons

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
