Boogie Bomb: Warriors set to add DeMarcus Cousins to lineup

That caused an unhappy, just-give-them-the-trophy-now reaction among more than a few National Basketball Association fans on Monday when they learned of the Cousins news, and they were not alone.

Losing out on Cousins is a big missed opportunity for Portland.

Naturally, the Warriors' Stephen Curry had a more positive reaction, jokingly referring to Cousins as the third "Splash Brother", along with himself and teammate Klay Thompson, and adding, "Let's go".

Cousins is in the midst of recovering from one of the most catastrophic injuries in sports, a ruptured Achilles tendon that ended his second season with the Pelicans at 48 games.

Cousins told Spears that he called his agent and they discussed various options, including the Warriors, who lost center JaVale McGee in free agency to the Los Angeles Lakers.

A judge dismissed the suit, telling Ramos that he hadn't shown "anything that was published about you is, in fact, false". Police found evidence at the suspect's house the attack on the Capital Gazette in Annapolis was planned.

LeBron has never gone somewhere alone and has never seemed interested in playing with talent that is years away from being where he needs them to be, so maybe he knows something we do not.

The Los Angeles Lakers reportedly want to trade for Kawhi Leonard, believing it can help them land LeBron James in free agency.

With LeBron James officially in tow, the Lakers now look towards the rest of the roster and which players they could add to make a run at a title this season. Since James signed, he clearly feels comfortable with where the Lakers are at now. Cousins can't make it official for a couple of days, but he agreed to a one-year deal with the Warriors. The Celtics may have been able to offer a bigger role, although Cousins' return could have stolen minutes from newly-signed free-agent Aron Baynes, who was very valuable last season.

Noel has appeared in just 223 games since joining the league - and 30 last season - and is coming off the worst season of his once-promising career, averaging 4.4 points and 5.6 rebounds. He spent his first six seasons with the Sacramento Kings. Calderon signed a one-year deal for the veteran minimum of about $2.4 million. The 10-story banner in downtown Cleveland is scheduled to be taken down by Nike later this week, even though some Clevelanders said they hoped it would remain as a tribute to James' years with the Cavs.
