Warriors’ DeMarcus Cousins Not Close to Return

on

Golden State Warriors head coach Steve Kerr says that center DeMarcus Cousins isn’t that close to making his return to the court, and essentially his debut with the team.

“We’re not really that close,” Kerr said of Cousins’ progress, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

“I don’t want this to be about: ‘Hey, we’re right there.’ We’re not right there. It’s still going to be some time. We’re going to be patient and continue to give DeMarcus the space he needs to prepare. When the time is right, we’ll have some things planned for him.”

Golden State signed Cousins to the mid-level exception of $5.3 million during the offseason.

One of the oddest moves in the early stages of free agency saw the Golden State Warriors agree to terms with point guard D’Angelo Russell.

However, it appears that landing Russell is a part of a bigger plan.

According to the New York Times’ Marc Stein, Russell will likely be traded by the Warriors.

“D’Angelo Russell doesn’t fit there whatsoever,” Stein said (h/t Bleacher Report). “They just wanted to make sure they did not see Kevin Durant, arguably the best player in the league when healthy, walk out the door for nothing. They got a 23-year-old All-Star, and they will trade him. It’s just a matter of when.”

It is expected that Russell will be traded next summer.

Livingston has $2 million of his $7.7 million guaranteed on his contract for next season, and has hinted at retirement as well.

If Livingston is on the Warriors’ roster past June 30th, he will be owed $7.7 million, so all signs point to a buy out being worked out.
