Cousins saw the Anthony Davis situation from a mile away.
DeMarcus Cousins has made it very clear that he felt slighted by how the New Orleans Pelicans treated him and that's why he ultimately ended up with the Golden State Warriors. The Pelicans have been known to treat the star players less than favorably, as was discovered when Anthony Davis requested a trade out of the city back in February. While Davis is still on the team, the writing is on the wall when it comes to whether or not Davis will be moved this season. As Cousins explained on Chris Haynes' podcast "Posted Up," he isn't surprised in the least bit that Davis is unhappy in NOLA.
"Yes. As soon as all that goofy junk went down (with me), I knew exactly what was going to happen," Cousins explained. "Of course I knew. I talked with Anthony. Like, duh. Duh. It was just a matter of time for y'all (the media) to find out."
Cousins was asked by Haynes whether or not he would still be with the Pelicans had they treated him better. The Golden State big man didn't really have much to say, claiming it "Don't even matter no more."
With the Warriors heading into the playoffs with first place in the Western Conference all but locked up, Cousins is probably happy he was able to escape the mayhem in New Orleans.
