With all of the degrees of separation with Cousins, here’s the multi-million dollar question: Will Cousins re-sign with the Pelicans or sign with other teams like the Los Angeles Lakers or the Philadelphia 76ers who are on the rise and/or have viable cap space? “He’s loyal, he wants to be in New Orleans, that I know,” said Hughley [Cousins’ former high school and NBA coach]. “I would like to see him play with AD again, but the way the business model was set up, and the salary cap may make it tougher for New Orleans to step out there. I think everybody is trying to play leverage and hoping that everybody would fall out so they could get him for 10 cents on the dollar. Demarcus is way too smart for that.”
Storyline: DeMarcus Cousins Free Agency
Zach Lowe on a podcast with Bill Simmons: “There’s no market for DeMarcus Cousins outside Dallas and then you have to go into sign-and-trade world. The Lakers are obviously out there too. People react like, ‘No, Cousins is a star, ever team will be willing to pay him the max.’ OK, who? He’s a big man coming off an Achilles tear and half the teams [with cap room] don’t want to spend their cap room because they’re bad.’
Storyline: DeMarcus Cousins Free Agency
DeMarcus Cousins told The Undefeated last week that he hadn’t spoken to the New Orleans Pelicans front office “in a while,” but coach Alvin Gentry made clear on Monday the team hopes the All-Star big man will be back with the team next season. “There’s not anyone that does not want him back with our franchise,” Gentry said Monday (May 21) at the Saints Hall of Fame Celebrity Golf Classic at Bayou Oaks City Park’s south course.

Mavs to pursue DeMarcus Cousins, DeAndre Jordan and Julius Randle?

Ever since word spread in league circles in March that Dirk Nowitzki would return to the Mavericks for his 21st season, there have also been rumblings that the Dallas front office will look to make additions this summer that can put the team back on a winning track. The Mavericks can create space to sign a max free agent, and multiple league sources expect them to pursue a trio of big men: DeAndre Jordan, DeMarcus Cousins, and restricted free agent Julius Randle. If the Mavericks do indeed plan to pursue expensive bigs in free agency, then it’d make sense to target a primary scorer, like Porter, rather than Bamba.
