B/R: In the Western Conference, you’ll have to go through Golden State. What did you think of DeMarcus Cousins signing with the Warriors? Michael Beasley: I think it was f–king bulls–t! [Laughs.] No, I’m just playing. I was surprised, but for DeMarcus, it was the best move. Coming off an injury, the market not being what he thought it’d be, him going there gives him a good chance to reevaluate what a winning culture is, to better himself on and off the court. But I’m like everybody else, too. God damn, you got DeMarcus Cousins? You got two championships with JaVale, he leaves, and you replace him with DeMarcus? C’mon, man. But at the end of the day, we’re all men, and we play basketball the same way. I don’t think they’re unbeatable; we just gotta go back to the drawing board.

Tim Bontemps: If today was July 1, I think Durant would leave. I think it’s most likely he signs with the Knicks, and if not the Knicks I could see he and Kawhi Leonard teaming up with the Clippers. I would be surprised if he was with anyone but the Knicks, Clippers or Warriors next season, though. And I also won’t be surprised if he changes his mind plenty of times between now and when he makes that decision.
There are whispers around the league that neither Jimmy Butler nor Kawhi Leonard wants to play with LeBron, and sources I’ve talked to would be shocked if Klay Thompson left Golden State. That might leave the Lakers with Walker or Middleton as their top remaining free-agent targets. If I’m the Hornets, that possibility would have me worried.
As for Green? That is less certain. He believes it is hard to quantify his value both in a box score and on a spreadsheet. Generally, though, Green wants to stay with the Warriors. Incidentally, he exited a loading dock just as Lacob was talking to this publication. Lacob then said, “I love Draymond!” Green smiled and said, “I love Joe!” They then exchanged pleasantries.
