NBA fans exploded on Monday night finding out the news that Boogie Cousins signed with the Warriors.
Some fans criticized the move calling Cousins a coward or blamed Demarcus for making the Warriors even more overpowered. Others questioned his intelligence for not taking a better deal somewhere else. The truth of the matter is there were no offers for the injured big man.
According to The Undefeated’s Marc J. Spears he was confused and hurt that he had no offers, even from the Pelicans. The Pelicans decided to sign Julis Randle to a two-year deal instead.
Cousins had a career year with the Pelicans and Anthony Davis. He averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists before his Achilles injury. The Pelicans and every other team in the NBA had doubts about Cousin’s ability to return from the injury.
Every team in the Eastern Conference should have reached out to Cousins. Yet none did. OKC, Houston Rockets, Trailblazers, Lakers, and The Jazz could have signed the four-time NBA All-Star. But none of them called.
Instead of sitting out a year of basketball and being out of the league. Cousin’s has the ability to sign with Warriors and rehab his injury until January.
If you are one of those mad fans, direct your anger at your GM and your team for not valuing his talent. Now the rest of league will have to deal with a team that has most NBA All-Stars on a single team in NBA history.
