In the most shocking move of free agency, Demarcus Cousins signs with the Warriors.
Cousins walked away from the Pelicans and joined the defending NBA champions on a one-year deal for $5.3 million dollars. Cousins joins a stacked roster of Steph Curry, Kevin Durant, Klay Thompson, and Draymond Green. This move gives the Warriors the most NBA All-Stars on any team.

The Warriors lost center JaVale McGee in free agency to the Los Angeles Lakers. Now they have a center that can get his own buckets and dominate the boards.
“Golden State used its taxpayer mid-level exception to reach a deal with Cousins, who underwent surgery in late January to repair the torn Achilles,” Wojnarowski reported. “He has been rehabilitating the injury and is hoping to return some time in December or January.”
