DeMarcus Cousins Is A Golden State Warrior

The Golden State Warriors just keep getting better. After signing DeMarcus Cousins to a one year 5.3 million dollar contract, the Warriors all but sealed their fate as next years champions.

Despite Cousins suffering a devastating achilles injury on January 26 of this year, he has positioned himself for a slow and steady rehabilitation process after joining the Warriors. It’s hard to fathom that Cousins, a two time All NBA Second Team selection added to hands down the best team in the league.

This move has to be the smartest of Cousins career. With speculation about the severity of his injury and time needed for rehabilitation, Golden State was the perfect fit. If Cousins is even 75 percent by the end of the season he is in for a massive pay day.

Cousins newfound range from three point territory had coined him the nickname “the third splash brother” by none other than his new teammate Steph Curry.

Kevin Durant also seemed to enjoy trolling his new teammate by posting a picture of Cousins trying to enter the Warriors locker room last season.

Next year is shaping up to have the best Warriors team yet. It will be interesting to see what teams on the fringe of contender-ship do in the coming days.

As the Golden State Warriors prepare for the 2018-2019 season and a defense of their NBA Championship, again, they are also on the clock when it comes to new deals for Klay Thompson and Kevin Durant, a big challenge for the cap strapped Warriors.

Additionally, former Defensive Player of the Year Draymond Green will also need a new deal from the team, but the veteran forward believes he is in the best position when determining his future with Golden State.

“I’m not sure how it plays out, but I think I’m in the best position out of everybody,” Green said, during an interview with ESPN’s Sam Alipour. “Steph was up, now Klay and Kevin are up. That gives me the opportunity to see what everyone else does. And quite frankly, if I am the first to bounce, unless it’s in 2020, it wouldn’t be my decision. I can get traded. But I’m last. I should be the least of everyone’s worries.”

Green wants to stay with the Warriors for the long-term, and has expressed a willingness to put the team first in the past.

“I’d love to [stay],” Green continued. “When you look around the league today, how many guys have been with one team? Kobe, Dirk [Nowitzki], Duncan, Manu [Ginobili]. It don’t happen like that anymore. That’d be amazing. But at the end of the day, it’s a business. Let the cards fall how they may.”

Golden State Warriors’ Klay Thompson is entering the final year of his current contract and his impending free agency will continue to be a hot topic throughout the 2018-2019 regular season, but folks shouldn’t hold out too much hope that Thompson will switch teams next summer.

In fact, Thompson sees himself playing for the Warriors for a long time to come.

“Yeah, well it’s a great position to be in” Thompson said during an appearance on Sirius NBA Radio.

“To be wanted is definitely awesome. It means you’ve been — you’re respected and you put in work, and NBA free agency has taken on a whole life of its own now. It’s crazy. You hear about it sometimes more than you do, even the regular season. That’s just the eagerness of fans trying to get — they’re trying to see the fantasy team. It is a goal of mine to be with the Dubs for a long, long time. Like I said before, it’s just special to do it in one place. To be known like the Derek Jeters, the Brett Favres, Kob, list goes on — Tim Duncan.

It’d be a goal of mine. A lot can happen though, but, it would definitely be awesome to be a Warrior for as long as I could possibly be.”
