Golden State Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins has had an up-and-down run with the Warriors this year, but has shows instances of the dominant All-Star form that he showed throughout the majority of his career.

As Cousins continues to get acclimated with his new team, and get back to form following his return from a lengthy injury, many have pointed to Cousins’ struggles on the defensive end of the court, to which Cousins takes issue with.

“It’s an adjustment to try to figure things out and see how we’re gonna play with the coverages” Cousins said following Golden State’s loss to the Boston Celtics, according to The Athletic’s Anthony Slater.

“I’m gonna adjust to this game, and like I said, we’re trying to figure it out right now, and what’s best, and it’s a different look with the personnel in the game.

“To say I’m struggling, it’s a bit foolish. It’s a different look every day with the personnel. Of course with Kyrie [Irving] and Jayson Tatum you want to be up on the screen, and then in other situations you play other guards back.

When you play a big, you play in the drop.”

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.
