DeMarcus Cousins is an NBA veteran that many teams thought coming into the season. December is just days away and the 32-year-old has yet to receive an offer from any club in the league. It’s confusing why the cousins haven’t called yet. He took matters into his own hands and called Warriors GM Bob Myers himself.
Cousins played in 48 NBA games last season, 17 for the Milwaukee Bucks and 31 for the Denver Nuggets. He started seven games last season. Boogie puts Myers on the phone and gets a real answer as to why teams are worried about signing him.
“Demarcus [Cousins] He called me a month ago and said, ‘Why am I not in the NBA?’ I have… because people are afraid of how she will act.

DeMarcus Cousins reaches out for advice on career move
Golden State Warriors GM Bob Myers was honest with Cousins and told him why he hasn’t fielded any offers from the team yet.
“DeMarcus called me a month ago and said, ‘Why can’t I make it in the NBA?’ i’ve got. Because people are afraid of how you will act.’ And he was like, ‘Why?’ And I said, ‘Well, whatever the reason, it’s here now.'” – Warriors GM Bob Myers
“And I love DeMarcus. You guys can relate to him. He’s just, I can’t blame him for everything he’s been through.” – Bob Myers
Cousins played for the Warriors for one season (2018-19), but they had to have a good relationship with Myers to get him some advice and he got the real answer he was looking for. He’s played for seven different franchises in his career, so it’s probably surprising that he hasn’t received an offer yet with the number of connections he’s had. “It means everything in the world to me to be back in the NBA,” he said in October, and he’s doing everything he can to get back on the court.
