When DeMarcus Cousins signed for Golden State Warriors for the 2018-19 season, it felt as if this could be a partnership that could go a long way in creating NBA history.
Cousins made the move from Pelicans to the Warriors this year, giving Golden State Warriors the chance to field 5 All stars in their starting 5.
However, an injury to Cousins has meant that he hasn’t played any games for the Warriors up until now.
Cousins had torn his achilles while playing for the Pelicans in January earlier this year and has since been away from the court.
Warriors had signed him up on a one-year deal worth $5 million.
He would be a free agent next year and according to Steve Kerr, he is certain to leave Golden State after this season.
Kerr admitted that it is Golden State’s objective to help Cousins win a ring this year, as he is certain to not be here from the next season on.
The Warriors’ head coach has conceded that the franchise will not be able to sign Cousins for one more year as they wouldn’t be in a position to afford him.
“We made no bones about it when we signed him. This is a 1-year deal and we’re not going to have money to sign him next year so we’d like to help him win a championship and sign a great contract somewhere else. That’s the reality.” Steve Kerr said.

Cousins has been cleared to participate in practice for GSW and it shouldn’t be long until he makes his first appearance for his new team this season.
