Anthony Davis is also a four-time NBA All-Star and Sunday night saw him recording 52 points and getting named MVP. As for Cousins, he has been the NBA All-Star from 2015 to 2017 and can become a free agent next year provided New Orleans Pelicans does not sign him further.
However, one does not know much as DeMarcus Cousins has said that he is not prepared to discuss his contract situation now but also added that he is all in. He maintained that he will make the best use of this opportunity and see what does the future hold. General Manager Dell Demps is also hopeful and said that putting together DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Jure Holiday is exciting and holds many possibilities.
