The Golden State Thanos have acquired another Infinity Stone and are now one step closer to destroying the universe.
According to multiple reports, the two-time defending champion Warriors have agreed to a one-year deal with center DeMarcus Cousins. The deal is reportedly worth $5.3 million, which is presumably well below what Cousins could’ve gotten had he just wanted to go to the highest bidder.
Cousins missed nearly half of this past season after suffering a torn Achilles in January, but he had been averaging 25.2 points and 12.9 rebounds per game for the New Orleans Pelicans prior to the injury. It remains to be seen when he’ll return to the court and whether he’ll be able to play at his usual level when he does. For his career, the soon-to-be 28-year-old is averaging 21.5 points and 11 rebounds per game.
Clearly, Cousins wants to win a title, and was willing to take a one-year prove-it deal to do it. Cousins had been a rumored target of the Los Angeles Lakers now that they have LeBron James, but it’s hard to argue against joining the Warriors if your goal is to win a ring.
As our Rich Keefe said on Twitter, the Warriors likely have the best starting five in NBA history now, as Cousins joins Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green. Despite LeBron joining the Lakers and the Celtics getting Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward back, the Warriors will be as heavy a championship favorite as any team has ever been.
