Some fans can't believe DeMarcus Cousins' cheapo Warriors contract
04 July, 2018, 02:56 | Author: Lora Ball
Cousins said other possible teams told his agent that he was not the right fit or they were anxious about his injury long term.
Instead he signs with the Warriors on a one-year deal to undergo his rehab on a contract worth $5.3million and will likely win a ring in the process. Before the injury, the 27-year old and two-time all-NBA selection averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists 48 games with New Orleans.
Cousins' best career game came on January 22, 2018 against the Chicago Bulls.
Yes, indeed, the National Basketball Association is laughing today, because that's more therapeutic than crying.
If Cousins turned down significantly bigger deals to play with the league's champions, it may rankle the players union, which is headed by Chris Paul and LeBron James, two players who not only often seek their full max deals in free agency (with some exceptions), but also compete directly with the Warriors.
DeMarcus Cousins was an emotional wreck and stunned no teams reached out to him as free agency wore on, so he took matters into his own hands, according to Marc Spears of the Undefeated. After talking to Myers, Cousins said, he spoke to Durant, Curry and Green, who is vacationing in Greece, to tell them he was considering joining the Warriors with the midlevel exception.
Sources say Cousins may not play in an actual game until around Christmas.
Phoenix forward Jared Dudley suggested the National Basketball Association owners might well lock the league out, while Quincy Pondexter suggested the next All-Star weekend should see the Warriors taking on the Western Conference All-Stars. The small chance of him somehow beating the odds and returning to form by the postseason make this a risk worth taking for the Warriors, but they did not sign a player who is going to contend for an All-NBA team next season. The 2016-17 Warriors, the first with Durant in the fold, were credited with close to 24 wins above replacement, but then declined to 17 wins above replacement last season. Pachulia and Bell, however, used 17 and 14 percent of possessions for Golden State, respectively, last season.
Many joked about Silver actually being a member of the Warriors himself.
