DeMarcus Cousins wedding: Former Warriors, Kings teammates attend

DeMarcus Cousins wedding: Former Warriors, Kings teammates attend

Editor's note: This article was first published without knowledge of TMZ Sports releasing an audio clip of a voice alleged to be Cousins threatening to shoot his former girlfriend, Christy West, one day before his wedding.

DeMarcus Cousins is a married man. 

The former Kings and Warriors center married his longtime girlfriend Morgan Lang in Atlanta on Saturday. Boogie's big day was filled with former Sacramento and Golden State teammates, too. 

Former Kings teammate Matt Barnes was in attendance, along with Cousins' ex-Warriors teammates Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Quinn Cook, People Magazine reported

"He's been through a lot of late, so I'm happy to see him smile, be able to take his mind off his injury and enjoy his day," Barnes said to TMZ at Los Angeles International Airport. 

Cousins, 29, tore his ACL two weeks before his wedding. Videos show the center moving slowly while he dances with his bride.

The big man signed a one-year contract with the Lakers this offseason and has gone through a myriad of injuries in recent years. 

Cousins was a three-time All-Star with the Kings and has averaged 21.2 points and 10.9 rebounds per game over his nine-year career.

Why Tom Haberstroh believes Warriors will trade Andrew Wiggins, top pick

Why Tom Haberstroh believes Warriors will trade Andrew Wiggins, top pick

The Warriors will pick in the NBA draft lottery for the first time since they selected Harrison Barnes No. 7 overall in the 2012 draft. With Steph Curry, Klay Thompson and Co. healthy, however, Golden State might be better off trading its top draft pick this year. 

And that's exactly what NBC Sports' Tom Haberstroh believes the Warriors will do. 

"I think the Golden State Warriors are gonna trade that pick, especially if it lands at No. 1," Haberstroh told NBC Sports Bay Area. "That's gonna create the most value for them." 

The Warriors soon will find out where they pick in the 2020 draft. The draft lottery will be held Aug. 20, and Golden State has a 14 percent chance of landing the No. 1 overall pick. There's a 13.4 percent chance of the Warriors picking at No. 2, 12.7 percent chance of No. 3, 12 percent chance of No. 4 and a 47.9 percent chance of dropping to No. 5.

While the San Francisco Chronicle's Connor Letourneau recently reported the Warriors believe Georgia shooting guard Anthony Edwards can contribute right away and be a future face of the franchise, this draft isn't full of surefire stars. The Warriors are in win-now mode with their core back to full health right now, and they might have their eyes on a current star instead of a possible future one.

"Look, they said they weren't going to trade D'Angelo Russell before, and a couple months later they ended up trading D'Angelo Russell," Haberstroh said. "... I suspect that they will get on the phone with just about every team in the league just to survey the landscape and see what kind of value they can get, and also pair potentially Andrew Wiggins' big contract to make the salaries work for a star."

The Warriors acquired Wiggins this season when they sent Russell to the Minnesota Timberwolves. Over 12 games with the Warriors, Wiggins averaged 19.4 points, 4.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists. Steve Kerr has had nothing but good things to say about Wiggins since the former top draft pick joined his squad, but perhaps general manager Bob Myers believes Wiggins could be a trade piece for an even better fit.

Wiggins, 25, isn't a free agent until after the 2022-23 season. He signed a five-year, $147.7 million contract extension with Minnesota in October 2017. So, who could the Warriors target with a trade package of Wiggins and their top pick?

Haberstroh thinks they should look to Canada for answers.

"I would look at first for Bob Myers, the GM of the Golden State Warriors, to give a call to the Toronto Raptors for potentially Pascal Siakam, because I think the Golden State Warriors need to upgrade defensively and get a guy who can replace Andre Iguodala, a guy who is very versatile, can play multiple positions defensively and there's just not a lot of guys out there who can do the things that Andre Iguodala did for the championship Warriors," Haberstroh said.

If Siakam is too much to ask for, which he likely is, Haberstroh's second option is a 22-year-old forward who recently tore his ACL in the Orlando bubble. 

"The other name I would look at is Jonathan Isaac," Haberstroh said. "Before he tore his ACL in the bubble games, I thought Jonathan Isaac was a perfect complement to what Draymond Green, Steph Curry and Klay Thompson bring to this Golden State Warriors team." 

Siakam would be Haberstroh's dream choice for the Warriors, with Isaac as their plan B. From until the draft on Oct. 16, Myers and the rest of the Warriors' front office will have a lot of decisions to make.

Warriors' Klay Thompson picks Giannis' Bucks to win 2020 NBA title

Warriors' Klay Thompson picks Giannis' Bucks to win 2020 NBA title

Warriors star shooting guard Klay Thompson let his NBA Finals prediction be known Wednesday afternoon.

Let's just say that his father, Mychal, won't be happy with what his son believes will come to fruition.

"I think it will be (Milwaukee) Bucks over (LA) Clippers in seven games," Klay told Brandon Williams, via Bleacher Report. "I think that would be a barn burner of a Finals."

So Klay doesn't have the Los Angeles Lakers -- the team his dad is the radio analyst for -- getting through the Western Conference playoff bracket.

It's unclear if the three-time NBA champion has the Lakers facing the Clippers in the West finals.

[RUNNIN' PLAYS PODCAST: Listen to the latest episode]

Yours truly is on the same page with Klay when it comes to the final two teams standing, but it will be Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and the Clippers who capture the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

No offense to Giannis Antetokounmpo, but the Bucks don't have the starpower or the depth to outlast the Clippers.

Then again, Klay clearly disagrees with that assessment.

Let the playoffs begin!
