Kirk Cousins had amusing reaction to DeMarcus Cousins signing with Warriors

San Antonio Spurs forward Kawhi Leonard before an NBA basketball game against the Phoenix Suns Friday Jan. 5 2018 in San Antonio

Many joked about Silver actually being a member of the Warriors himself.

As said at the start of this article, there can be no grudge on the Warriors for taking this deal, and equally on Cousins for going there after being snubbed by the franchise he wanted to stay at.

"He's a dynamic player".

According to Basketball Insiders' Alex Kennedy, one player didn't even believe him when he broke the news. The MLE comes in several different varieties depending on how far past the cap a team's payroll is, but the Warriors used the so-called taxpayer MLE to give Cousins his $5.3 million next season. Before trading Cousins to New Orleans during the 2017 NBA All-Star break, the Kings were expected to sign Cousins to a $200 million maximum contract.

The Houston Rockets would hope the duo of Chris Paul and James Harden can continue to shine in the second year together and a similar scenario will likely take place with the Oklahoma City Thunder with Paul George, Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony. That win was the Pelicans' seventh in the previous eight contests. Cousins and coach Alvin Gentry scoffed at such talk. The GM speculated that Cousins and his agent, Jarinn Akana, simply didn't want to risk any scrutiny of his Achilles leaving them empty-handed.

We were not happy about the situation of course. "The manner in which the team qualified was not the initial goal", said Nishino. Poland , for the third straight World Cup that it has competed in, lost its first two group matches and then won its third.

They've had success with assimilating players with bad reputations and given Cousins' already strong relationship with this team's core dating back to their Team USA days, it doesn't seem to be something overly concerning.

"Keep in mind he had that Achilles injury right after the all-star break and, in the back of his mind, he wondered if it would affect him majorly in free agency, and it did", Spears said during an ESPN segment shortly after the reported Cousins news broke. If he returns and excels and helps the Warriors win a championship, he'll return to the free agent market in line for a big deal.

But Boogie to the Bay Area will soon be a reality.

"I feel fantastic. The insane thing is it has been tough for me".

"Wouldn't be surprised if I see BREAKING: Warriors just signed Thanos and John Wick to add to their bench for one year".
