Pelicans Coach Alvin Gentry said today "We want DeMarcus back on our team. Everybody has said that," when asked about DeMarcus Cousins' pending free agency.
Cousins' situation is one of the most interesting to watch this offseason. With a ruptured Achilles and max contract level talent, teams will have to make a decision on whether or not they want to risk Cousins getting fully healthy. He is a superstar center and the Pelicans thrived both with and without him this season, but the track record of recent players returning from an Achilles injury like his is not encouraging whatsoever. We'll keep a close watch on his free agency as it gets closer to July.
