Warriors, NBA Twitter react to signing of DeMarcus Cousins

Share

Cousins clearly relies on his athleticism for much of his effectiveness, but he does have pretty good feel for a big man and his unusual skill set for a 6-foot-11 bruiser would make him an asset for most teams in the league - let alone the embarrassingly talented Golden State Warriors.

Before his injury, Cousins was averaging 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks per game through 48 games with the Pelicans, figures that have never been reached by one player in a single season in National Basketball Association history. There isn't any certainty that he will be the same player once he returns from the torn Achilles tendon, but there is no rush or pressure for him to return to the court before he's physically ready to do so next season. The quintet of Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, Draymond Green, and Cousins have 25 combined All-Star appearances.

It was reported Friday that James has informed the Cleveland Cavaliers he won't opt in for the final year of his contract with the team.

The Golden State Warriors are on the attack as the team added DeMarcus Cousins to their lineup, per Yahoo Sports' Shams Charania. Our list of most valuable players on expiring contracts is populated by the also-rans of the league - those players who could make a difference only in the best, tailor-made scenarios for them.

Assuming he is healthy, Cousins on the Warriors offense is downright scary.

Cousins earned his fourth straight selection for the NBA All-Star Game last season and was slated to start the annual contest until a ruptured Achilles tendon in his left leg on January 26 sidelined him for the rest of the year.

Cousins was traded to the Pelicans during NBA All-Star Weekend in 2017, ending his six-plus-season run with the Sacramento Kings.

Lakers drafted Julius Randle with their 7th pick in the 2014 draft and were adamant he would be a huge part of their future with his breakout season averaging 16.1 points and 8.0 rebounds per game while only playing 26 minutes, sharing minutes with Kuzma. The Sixers now can pursue depth pieces to fill out their roster, presumably including another shooter on the wing, perhaps another wing defender and a backup center to fill in minutes behind star Joel Embiid.

They've missed the playoffs in five consecutive seasons and they're looking for the game's biggest superstars to come in and alter their fortunes.

The Warriors finished last season with a 58-24 record.
