Did he not know those teams would be in the association when he told other in 2018 he was coming to our crappy team? Unless Ball is an all star next year we are set to be doomed until 2025 by your estimation.
Not necessarily. I actually think Cousins is an easier get/sell and that the Pelicans have a better chance of 'disappointing him' than OKC does with George. Especially considering they just went out and maxed Jrue Holiday after being what I felt was a piece away (which is why I was nervous they'd get CP3, but they just re-signed Jrue instead with all that money).
That and Cousins close relationship with Randle could also play a factor in it too. I personally think our target should be Cousins, particularly if the Pelicans don't make it happen again this year as I personally don't think Anthony Davis's career isn't going anywhere till he leaves the Pelicans.
But that's neither here nor there right now.
