There isn’t much of a demand for DeMarcus Cousins’ services right now. It’s an unfortunate quirk of the NBA’s free agent market, but as things stand, teams are not lining up to make a play for the former All-Star center, who is coming off of an up-and-down year with the Golden State Warriors.
Boogie is still working to get back to 100 percent following a ruptured Achilles that he suffered in 2018, which was compounded by the quadriceps injury he suffered during the playoffs and powered through during the Finals. Still, if the fine folks in San Antonio have their way, Cousins will end up boogying on down to the Lone Star State next season.
A billboard has apparently gone up in San Antonio imploring Cousins to become a Spur.
The timing of the billboard is curious because it comes on the heels of Shams Charania of The Athletic mentioning that DeMar DeRozan has reached out about joining the team.
As Charania mentions, part of the issue Cousins is facing is that the league is in a holding pattern while everyone waits for Kawhi Leonard to make his decision. Still, Cousins would be an interesting fit on the Spurs because, in the event he’s able to make an impact next year, a DeRozan-Cousins-LaMarcus Aldridge trio would be quite fun. Plus, if any coach could figure out a way to bring out the best in Cousins, Gregg Popovich might be the guy to do it.
