Mavs potential on landing Demarcus Cousins in a trade.
According to a Michael Scotto of The Athletic:
Cousins will be an unrestricted free agent and told ESPN’s The Undefeated he’s open to re-signing with New Orleans, but admitted he hasn’t spoken to the Pelicans’ front office in a while and understands the team will do what’s best for its future.
The All-Star center tore his left Achilles’ tendon in January, an injury considered by many to be the most difficult from which to return. The Pelicans have internally discussed offering Cousins a shorter-team deal for less than the full max, according to a report from ESPN.
