DeMarcus Cousins has raised doubts about his continuity in the New Orleans Pelicans. The center, who broke the Achilles tendon at the end of January and is an unrestricted free agent this summer, stopped following the franchise on Instagram and, when asked, simply replied: “cause I’m grown.”
Cousins is a free agent without restrictions, but his future is very conditioned by that injury, which can mark a before and after in his career. Even more so in the case of a 2.11m player and more than 120 kilos.
Both Alvin Gentry and Dell Demps, general manager of the Pelicans, have reiterated their intention to renew DeMarcus Cousins, although it will be a delicate negotiation. There is much uncertainty about how to recover and the salary situation of the franchise is already very complicated: they have committed more than 100 million dollars for next season and, in addition to Cousins, want to renew Rajon Rondo.
