DeMarcus Cousins Signs One-Year Deal With the Golden State Warriors
The Los Angeles Lakers merely won a single day in free agency.
Much like the regular season, the reigning two-time NBA champion Golden State Warriors have won the offseason. Against all odds, the Golden State Warriors signed All-Star DeMarcus Cousins to a one-year, $5.3-million deal. Currently recovering from an achilles tendon injury, Cousins is expected to be back at some point next year, and once he returns, the Warriors will have a starting five worthy of starting an NBA All-Star Game.

According to Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports, Draymond Green played a vital role in recruiting the superstar big man. In essence, the Warriors simply replaced JaVale McGee, whom the team lost a day earlier with a multiple time All-Star.
In 48-games last season, Cousins averaged 25.2-points, 12.9-rebounds, and 5.4-assists per game.
