No Team Offered Boogie Cousins A Contract

Published

on

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.

Dwayne Wade is calling it quits after the 2018 NBA season.

The 12-time All-Star already has three championships is ready to walk away from the game. Wade announced his return in video titled “One Last Dance.”

“This decision is bigger than the game of basketball,” said the soon to be 37-year-old. “This decision don’t have nothing to do with the talent I have in my body. Yeah, I’m not as quick as I used to be. Yeah, I don’t jump as high as I used to. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t. Yeah, I don’t.

“A lot of you guys see me is as a three-time champion, a 12-time All-Star, an Olympic gold medalist, y’all didn’t see that kid that no one [saw] because he was small, because he couldn’t shoot as good as everybody else,” he said. “Y’all didn’t see the grind. Y’all didn’t see the tears.”

Wade will return with Miami Heat for his last season. Many fans will forget about his lost tape years in Chicago and Cleveland.

“I still see a player who can contribute heavily if he really wants to,” Heat president Pat Riley said to reporters in July. “If he plays, he’s going to want to do that. We don’t want him back as a place-mat holder or somebody who’s going to be a veteran in the locker room. Dwyane is a great player, a great talent. He’s not the same guy he was in 2006, but he can be a very good player for us and can make a big difference for us. We want him back as a guy that realizes if this is going to be his last year or whatever, we want this to be his best year ever.”

The NFL released an official statement from Davis on Twitter. Davis said that the reality had hit him: “I shouldn’t be out there anymore.”

“And truthfully, I do not because the season is long, and it’s more important for me and my family to walk away healthy than to willfully embrace the warrior mentality and limp away too late,” he said in the statement.

“This was an overwhelming decision, but I’m at peace with myself and my family.”
