Warriors big man DeMarcus Cousins will become an unrestricted free agent Sunday, and he just might be bound for the Big Apple when it's all said and done.
Marc Stein of The New York Times has the information:
The Knicks are weighing the prospect of extending a considerable one-year offer to Warriors free-agent big man DeMarcus Cousins if they miss out on top target Kevin Durant, league sources say— Marc Stein (@TheSteinLine) June 27, 2019
So, the Knicks wouldn't consider the same offer for Cousins if Kevin Durant does sign with them?
If you were hoping Cousins returning to the Warriors was a serious possibility, you shouldn't hold your breath. They only can offer Boogie a maximum of $6.4 million next season.
"I would say that the hope is that frankly he [Cousins] can do a lot better financially than what we could offer him," Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters on June 14. "But who knows? Every year is different.
"I could absolutely foresee a place for DeMarcus here if he wanted to come back. It's just a question of what are his goals, what is out there for him."
Well, it's safe to assume that "considerable" means way more than $6.4 million, which would be very hard for Cousins to pass up.
Will any other teams pony up big money for the soon-to-be 29-year-old? Will someone offer a multiyear contract?
Boogie has been through a lot in the last 18 months, and hopefully he gets what he's seeking.
