DeMarcus Cousins appeared to confirm his imminent departure from the Golden State Warriors in a post on Instagram on Saturday.
The free agent who shared the message on his Instagram story thanked the Warriors and their fans for a memorable season and concluded by saying, "I'm in the neck next season."

In other words, judging by this last sentence, Cousins sees himself elsewhere next season. It is not a surprise. While he's left the door open during his exit talks, the Warriors can only afford it for about $ 6.3 million next season. Even with the injuries that torment him this season, he should be able to have more than on the market.
The cousins averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds in 30 regular season games for Golden State. That dropped to 7.6 points and 4.9 rebounds in the playoffs, as Cousins was held back by injury.
