With Kevin Durant moved on to the Brooklyn Nets, the Warriors can’t afford to lose more players. The Warriors will most likely offer a better contract to Cousins so that he stays in the team. But all of that depends on how well he plays after his injury. Still, there are a lot of other teams who are interested in free agent DeMarcus Cousins.
