Appearing on ESPN last night, Adrian Wojnarowski said that the Pelicans want to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins but they are not willing to offer him the max, while the Mavs are a potential destination.
Six months ago, DeMarcus Cousins was a max contract candidate but after his Achilles injury, the Pelicans are looking to bring him back on a short-term deal in order to evaluate his post-injury performance. Anthony Davis wants Boogie to remain in New Orleans but the Mavs will be lurking even though their plans will be clearer after the NBA draft and whether they draft a big man or not. Cousins won’t be ready for training camp but not many players have the skill set he possesses and it shouldn’t be surprising for teams to go after him with a max offer after such a serious injury.
