Eye rolling emojis EVERYWHERE. DeMarcus Cousins, who is set to be a free agent this Summer, has unfollowed his current (former?) team the New Orleans Pelicans on Instagram. And when a fan asked him why he would ever do such a thing, he responded by saying “cause I’m grown.” YIKES. I’d be heated if I were a Pelicans fan right about now.
My guess is that NO’s front office low-balled the shit out of him in contract negotiations and it ticked him off. Not exactly the best course of action to take on your second best player, especially after getting your doors blown off without him in the playoffs, but hey, what do I know? I get that he’s coming off an Achilles injury and might not come back the same, but you don’t take that kind of risk on a talent like Cousins. They must have forgotten how much they gave up last year at the deadline to get him. Letting him walk for nothing should get everyone in that front office fired.
Maybe we’ll see Anthony Davis get traded after all because this team is virtually going nowhere if they can’t re-sign Cousins.
