In an interview with ESPN, Curry said that he was in the hospital with Ayesha when he was informed by the Warriors that a deal with DeMarcus Cousins was in the works, and Cousins signed with the team later that day. “I was actually in the hospital with my wife when I got the call that that was a possibility, and like two hours later they signed the deal. Obviously surprising on all fronts, but a great look for us when it comes to adding a new dimension to our team. DeMarcus is an amazing talent, he’s been a beast on the floor, and obviously he’s going to come back strong from this injury and help us out. …. A lot of people were shocked, including myself.”
