The Boston Celtics are looking for ways to fill out their frontcourt now that Al Horford has departed in free agency, and DeMarcus Cousins would provide them with an low-cost option who has All-Star potential. The former lottery pick out of Kentucky is reportedly drumming up zero interest on the free agent market according to Adrian Wojnarowski.
DeMarcus Cousins may have some trouble finding a new National Basketball Association home for next season. "That's not happening. I don't even know if the mid-level exception he got in Golden State past year, I don't think that's there for him", Wojnarowski told Scott Van Pelt Monday on SportsCenter. "I think he hoped that some big market teams would strike out, they'd have cap space and he could get a one-year, $12M, $15M, $18M, $20 million deal".
In the postseason, Looney posted averages of 7.1 points and 4.5 rebounds, seeing more time when DeMarcus Cousins missed most of the first three rounds of the playoffs due to injuries. That's not happening. The mid-level exception he got in Golden State a year ago? "I don't think that's".
Looney, 23, appeared in 80 regular-season games and made 24 starts for the Warriors last season, averaging 6.3 points and 5.2 rebounds. He missed one game before returning to action and playing through the ailment the last three contests as the Warriors fell to Toronto in six games. "I'm open, so we'll see what happens". He's not going to be out of the league next season, but he might have to wait a little longer - and accept [much] less money - than he would have liked.
