What once looked like a rather difficult possibility, now looks like a likely one as the New Orleans Pelicans are not “very likely” to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Wojnarowski explained, during a Saturday appearance on SportsCenter, that Cousins “was on his way to a five-year, full-max contract, having the best season of his career, before the injury.”

Cousins is reportedly likely to re-sign with New Orleans on a two-year deal.

Cousins averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 steals and 1.6 blocks over 48 games last season before he suffered a torn Achilles.
