Steve Kerr went out his method yesterday to declare that DeMarcus Cousins was doubtless solely a one-and-done choice for the Golden State Warriors this season. It’s not a lot what he mentioned about DeMarcus, however why he selected to talk (on the subject) within the first place. There is an unsubstantiated perception the feedback might have been spurred by Cousins’ ejection the opposite evening, whereas he remained seated as DNP.
Evidently, Cousins will likely be chasing the massive bucks within the offseason contemplating he is in smack in the midst of his peak years as an NBA expertise, the stretch of his profession the place he stands to land probably the most profitable long-term contract. “We made no bones about it once we signed him,” Kerr mentioned. “It’s a one-year deal. We’re not going to have cash to signal him subsequent yr. He is aware of that,” said the direct and outspoken, if not charming, head coach of the Golden State Warriors.
But it seems Golden State’s proprietor might produce other plans if the checkbook balances out this summer season. “Options are open, Pap; like something. If you’d’ve requested me a yr in the past earlier than this if he was gonna be an choice for us, I might say, ‘No method, that is loopy!’ But he got here. He got here for lots lower than his market worth was,” Warriors’ GM Bob Myers instructed Greg Papa in a sit-down interview which aired on Warriors Pregame Live.”
He closed the dialogue by admitting that he does not understand how the 2019 offseason will shakedown for Durant, Klay or Boogie. “You do not know if it is going to be higher than you assume…however it’s not going to be what you assume. So, with a man like DeMarcus, who is aware of? If he needs to come back again, let’s convey him again,” he added.
