DeMarcus Cousins may have tipped us off regarding his future with the New Orleans Pelicans. Cousins unfollowed the Pelicans on Instagram, which suggests he no longer has a future with the franchise.
Cousins will become an unrestricted free agent this summer and there is a big debate over whether or not the Pelicans should offer him a new deal. It’s rumored they’ll offer him a two- or three-year deal at less than the max, but Cousins will want a max contract and should have plenty of opportunities, despite the injury that cut his season short.
When asked about the unfollow, Cousins replied, “cause I’m grown,” in the comments.
It’s worth noting that he still follows the Pelicans on Twitter, so this could be nothing more than an overreaction to a meaningless Instagram cleansing.
Whatever the case, we’re following Boogie wherever he ends up.
