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.
