The Golden State Warriors have one-upped LeBron James and the Los Angeles Lakers in a huge way by signing four-time All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.


Shams Charania of Yahoo Sports broke this news Monday evening.

ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports it’s a one-year deal worth $5.3 million.

Cousins’ manager had hinted something huge was afoot just minutes prior to this breaking news.

Obviously adding Cousins to their already loaded roster makes Golden State the prohibitive favorite to win another championship in 2019.

Last year, before his season-ending Achilles injury, Cousins averaged 25.2 points, 12.9 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.6 blocks and 1.6 steals per game.
