If both James and Cousins sign with Los Angeles, it would be a nice rotation alongside Lonzo Ball and Brandon Ingram - especially if they can bring back restricted free agent Julius Randle.

For the National Basketball Association fans who are once again proclaiming that we should just go ahead and give the title to the Warriors, it's worth pointing out that Cousins is returning from a serious injury.

"I'm looking forward to starting the season", Cousins said. He has been named an NBA All-Star every year since 2015.

To some, the Australian trio's punishments were harsh, to others, they were nowhere near severe enough. It's those things we miss. "I was making terrible decisions and I just felt frightful at the crease".

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, Cousins will sign a one-year deal for $5.3 million, the taxpayer mid-level exception.

Warriors centers like Zaza Pachulia, JaVale McGee, Kevon Looney and Jordan Bell are useful in their roles, but they simply don't have the same ability to impact the game like Cousins.

The Cousins news comes as a particularly tough blow to the Lakers, who appeared to be angling to sign the big man as a second star to put next to LeBron James. He's taking a considerable pay cut at $5.3 million for one year.

DeMarcus Cousins is signing with the Golden State Warriors in a stunning free agency move. New Orleans could avoid a major financial investment in a player coming off a serious injury and Cousins would get a chance to rebuild his value with a chance to hit the open market again in the coming years. If he was forced to come off the bench, the Celtics might not have presented any real advantages to the Warriors. It was left to players on other teams to bemoan how the deck seemed to be more stacked than ever against them.

As always, this is the Warriors' league. Durant and Green also jokingly teased Cousins by posting photos on their Instagram account that showed Cousins trying to charge into the Warriors' locker room following an in-game scuffle with Durant last season.

Lakers president Magic Johnson recently gave a confident statement about the Lakers' offseason, saying if things don't go their way this summer, they will move onto next summer to go after free agents.

Well, with the NBA's moratorium period not ending until 12:01 p.m. on July 6, Embiid and the Sixers still have some time to change James' mind.
