Warriors Hold On To Kevon Looney; Jordan Bell Signs With Minnesota

Share

Cousins' market seems virtually non-existent right now, so it does seem possible that a team could sign him for the minimum, as insane as that sounds.

Kevon Looney is returning to the Golden State Warriors on a three-year, $15 million deal, agent Todd Ramasar told ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski.

"There's not a market for [DeMarcus Cousins]", Wojnarowski said on ESPN on Tuesday morning. "I don't think that's".

There were rumblings of the Boston Celtics possibly having interest in Cousins, but according to Yahoo's Keith Smith, an agreement between the two sides is unlikely at the moment. The best possible scenario for Cousins to receive a competitive offer would be from either the Lakers or Clippers - whichever team doesn't land Kawhi Leonard.

According to Mark Murphy of The Boston Herald, the Celtics are not interested in signing Cousins due to the "potential drama" that the big man could bring with him. Cousins, who was coming off of a torn Achilles, worked himself into a rotation that already boasted four all-stars.

Looney, 23, averaged career highs this past season in minutes (18.5), points (6.3), rebounds (5.2), assists (1.5) and field goal percentage (62.5).

Cousins returned to the court in January and was impressive in the regular season - but a quadriceps injury in the first round of the playoffs forced him to miss 14 games. He'd return for the NBA Finals, but played sparingly as Golden State fell to the Toronto Raptors in six games.
