Adrian Wojnarowski says teams aren't willing to pay DeMarcus Cousins

The Boston Celtics are looking for ways to fill out their frontcourt now that Al Horford has departed in free agency, and DeMarcus Cousins would provide them with an affordable option who has All-Star potential.

During an appearance on SportsCenter, ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski told Scott Van Pelt that there's virtually no market at all for Cousins right now.

"There's not a market for [DeMarcus Cousins]", Wojnarowski said on ESPN on Tuesday morning. I think he thought - he hoped - big market teams would strike out and have cap space.

In the postseason, Looney posted averages of 7.1 points and 4.5 rebounds, seeing more time when DeMarcus Cousins missed most of the first three rounds of the playoffs due to injuries.

Kevon Looney was essential to the Golden State Warriors' success last season. "I don't think that's".

According to other reports, Cousins, 28, will become obsolete to the Lakers if the team manages to sign Kawhi Leonard, leaving the Celtics as a possible landing spot. He could get a one-year, 12, 15, 18, 20-million dollar deal. Boston would not be able to offer Cousins anything other than the veteran minimum and also agree to a two-year deal with veteran centre Enes Kanter on Monday.

Looney averaged a career-best 6.3 points and 5.2 rebounds a game while starting 24 of the 80 regular season games. He'd return for the NBA Finals, but played sparingly as Golden State fell to the Toronto Raptors in six games.
