Warriors, NBA Twitter react to signing of DeMarcus Cousins

The Golden State Warriors have pulled off the most shocking move of the National Basketball Association offseason with the expected addition of All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins on a one-year deal worth $5.3 million.

In terms of his injury, the Warriors will give him all the time that he needs to get better - they proved previous year that the regular season comes a distant second to being ready and healthy for the playoffs. Cousins tore his Achilles on January 26, and it's unclear when he'll be set to return to the court.

Talking about the chances DeMarcus Cousins' potential addition to the Lakers via free agency might affect the odds of James joining the team, Clutch Points suggested that it would mostly depend on whether Cousins "can keep his head on straight".

Cousins, who is recovering from a ruptured left Achilles tendon he suffered in January, was in talks with the New Orleans Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers on a potential new deal, but he decided to make the NBA's latest dynasty even stronger.

LeBron stated earlier last season that he did want to begin playing off the ball and with Lonzo Ball it makes sense. He spurned those doomsayers, however, by coming back better than ever and averaging 24.6 points per game in his three seasons after the injury (including a stunning 29.9 in the first year back from the injury).

The NBA's richest team has gotten a whole lot richer. By midnight, or a few minutes later, there likely will be a flurry of moves announced on Twitter, and one or two - a Paul George agreement and/or a Leonard trade - could alert us to LeBron's plans.

The Warriors' recruitment was led by Green, who has a strong relationship with Cousins, and general manager Bob Myers, and it included a positive phone call between Cousins and coach Steve Kerr, league sources said.

But fears about his recovery obviously didn't scare off the Warriors, who will be ecstatic to add yet another talent for a pittance to a team already heavily favored to win a third straight championship this season.

Cousins is a game-changing player when healthy as arguably the best center in the league when healthy.

"He's right on schedule". In his seventh season with Sacramento, the Kings traded Cousins to the Pelicans at the All-Star break during the 2016-17 season.
