DeMarcus Cousins Agrees To Sign One-Year, $5.3M With Warriors

The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly want to trade for Kawhi Leonard, believing it can help them land LeBron James in free agency.

With James locked in for four years, and Leonard is a free agent in 2019 the desperation for the Lakers is gone.

"Kawhi Leonard to miss birthday party (return from injury management)", one fan said in relation to this past season's Spurs injury report.

Warriors centers like Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell are useful in their roles, but they simply don't have the same ability to impact the game like Cousins. Cousins can score in the post, along the elbows and from the perimeter. Like Cousins, Rondo was part of the New Orleans Pelicans last season. Golden State's Andre Iguodala was equally excited, tweeting, "Big fella!"

After surprisingly expressing interest in DeAndre Jordan before he signed with the Dallas Mavericks, the Warriors used its taxpayer midlevel exception to reach a deal with perhaps the best center in the entire National Basketball Association.

As always, this is the Warriors' league.

Amazon Prime Delivery job: Amazon promises massive profits to startups
Amazon says the earning potential for successful owners is as much as $300,000 in annual profit operating a fleet of 40 vehicles. Amazon's dependence on services such as USPS, UPS and FedEx , which deliver the bulk of its packages, also has downsides.

The only weakness Golden State has shown in the past two seasons was inside.

Nearly certainly, the Spurs will demand a much bigger return than the Cleveland Cavaliers received last summer, when they traded Kyrie Irving to Boston in exchange for Isaiah Thomas, Ante Zizic, Jae Crowder and the rights to the Brooklyn Nets' 2018 first-round draft pick. "But for me, I'm shooting to be ready for training camp".

The culture of the Warriors is strong enough to positively mold any player, but they'd be pushing their luck with Howard it seems like. "The people in the front office are going to make the best decision for the team or whatever they feel is the best decision".

To think, the Warriors previously spent the first day of free agency losing out on potential targets.

Missing out on Leonard this summer would however leave a lot up to four-time MVP James if they intend to compete for a championship in 2018-19.

Rumors around impending free agent center DeMarcus Cousins are stating that the 27-year-old will "very likely" re-sign with the New Orleans Pelicans.

The Warriors made a steeper investment on that down payment, throwing opposing teams scrambling on how to bolster their roster. Evans suffered the injury after accidentally stepping on a teammates' shoe.
