DeMarcus Cousins to sign with Warriors

Soobum Im-USA TODAY Sports

The Warriors probably won't let Boogie handle the ball that much next season, but it may be hard for him to transition to an off-ball role.

His success alongside fellow Kentucky product and National Basketball Association superstar power forward Anthony Davis gives the Pelicans one of the league's best one-two punches. "A torn Achilles is no joke for any athlete, but especially so for a 6'11", 269-pound brick house. Cousins was off to a career-year last season, averaging 25.2 points and 12.7 rebounds per game before the injury.

Those are definitely impressive numbers.

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. The dude simply stuffs the stat sheet, but he hasn't proven he can win yet.

ESPN reporter Marc Spears spoke to Cousins shortly after the announcement and revealed the former Sacramento Kings star was stunned by the reaction from the likes of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. What has he done to prove otherwise?

Showtime Sports had been following Cousins' offseason moves, and released a small clip of the 27-year-old on the phone before declaring to the camera he was officially a Warrior. If Cousins knew what the Pelicans were willing to pay him, that counts for me.

Meanwhile, the Arizona Cardinals and the Pittsburgh Steelers told the Warriors to forget about their prized assets, just in case they fancied adding some National Football League players to their roster.

Is Cousins really going to be happy with his 8-10 shots per game when he comes back from injury? Lingering questions about Cousins' commitment to winning and overall attitude would also likely be erased.

The other thing that people are forgetting: Cousins might not even play until January. "But I'm just happy to be with the champs", said Cousins, who has never played in the postseason. "I think DeMarcus is the best center in the game". Now, they have another All-Star.

Just before the sun peeked in on another sweltering Vegas day, Cousins called his longtime agent Jarinn Akana with a shocking plan.
