Report: Limited interest in DeMarcus Cousins
Despite his resume as one of the NBA’s most accomplished big men, DeMarcus Cousins isn’t getting a lot of hits with free agency looming.
According to Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports, Cousins is attracting limited interest, with teams concerned that he won’t have a lot to offer in 2018-19 as he recovers from an Achilles injury.
Teams kicking around a run at DeMarcus Cousins–and there are not many right now–are asking one question: What are we paying for in Year 1? Long term, could Cousins rebound? Maybe. In the '18-19 season? Some strong skepticism.

Cousins’s injury couldn’t have come at a worse time, as it cost him a max contract. He’ll have to settle for a shorter pact to rebuild his value. He was interested in returning to the New Orleans Pelicans, which sounds like the most likely solution.
