"But even if that happens, they still won't beat Golden State", Johnson said.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski reported that Cousins could be re-signed by the Pelicans to a two-year deal.

New Orleans Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins received phone calls from the Pelicans and the Los Angeles Lakers on the first day of National Basketball Association free agency on Sunday, a source told ESPN's The Undefeated.

LeBron's praise of Cousins came before the New Orleans big man had suffered a major injury, but sources say he remains interested by the idea of playing with Boogie.

So I'm not saying the Sixers should give up on going after LeBron James but they probably have a better chance at getting Kawhi Leonard.

"Golden State used its taxpayer mid-level exception to reach a deal with Cousins, who underwent surgery in late January to fix the torn Achilles", Wojnarowski reported.

The unidentified woman told Miller she had warned a former police official years ago that Ramos "will be your next mass shooter ". In his high school yearbook photo, he is smiling, and has shoulder-length, curly brown hair and oversized glasses.

Boston would need assurances that Leonard's quadriceps injury is healed and that he would be willing to stay with the team beyond the coming season.

DeMarcus Cousins agreed to join the Warriors on their taxpayer mid-level exception worth $5.3 million, as Yahoo!

Sunday, July 1, is the start of the new league year. Conversely, being able to field the two next season would nearly immediately turn the Lakers from a 35-win team into a force to be reckoned with. However, with a high asking price, no deal was done prior to James signing.

The Pelicans found a way to recover after Cousins went down and made it to the playoffs with a 48-34 record before sweeping the third-seed Portland Trail Blazers.

The squad may have figured out a way to win without their star center, but he was load to deal with for opposing teams when he was healthy. Leonard played in only nine games this season, scoring 16.2 points a night, well below his average of 25.5 in 2016-17. The team reportedly wants nothing to do with the former UCLA point guard (or, presumably, his loudmouth father).
