More Wildcats to watch in free agency

Some former Wildcats have switched NBA teams since the free agency door opened Sunday evening. We recently learned Willie Cauley-Stein is joining the Warriors; then there is Enes Kanter to Boston; and Julius Randle taking a leading role with the New York Knicks, alongside Kevin Knox. But there are more former Wildcats still on the market with their future homes still undecided:

DeMarcus Cousins — Earlier today, Woj said, “there is not a market for (Cousins) right now,” suggesting Cousins’ options are extremely limited. It’s ridiculous to think a former NBA All-Star can’t find a deal somewhere, but that appears to be the reality for Cousins, at least for now. He will likely end up with another one-year deal somewhere, well below his value, sadly. He was eyeing a max deal only two years ago, prior to his injury.

Darius Miller — Miller told Hey Kentucky! he knows he will have to wait for the bigger names to make their moves before he finds his next job in the league. I assume Kawhi Leonard is one of those bigger names, so Miller will probably be waiting until Leonard makes his move before he can make his. The Lakers could be an option if Leonard doesn’t end up there.

Rajon Rondo — The journeyman point guard could be starting with a new team for a seventh consecutive season, or he could return to L.A. to make sure LeBron and A.D. are getting the ball as often as they should be getting the ball.

Maybe all three to the Lakers?

    Cousins and Rondo will both get 1yr deals somewhere, and most likely Darius will go overseas

      Darius just resigned with NOLA, and for decent money too.

    Darius is a great 6th/7th man. He might be a great value pickup for the Lakers to role play even more if they spend a bunch of that salary pool on another superstar. I’d love to see him get a good opportunity like that.
