Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins was candid about his upcoming free agency, revealing he doesn’t really “give a sh—” about the process right now.
During an appearance on Chris Haynes’ podcast “Posted Up,” Cousins was asked about what he thinks will happen during free agency this summer. He was blunt with his response, saying, “Who knows what happens next summer? So I don’t know.”

Cousins went on to explain that he’s just living day by day through the process and he’s not worrying about the future.
“I don’t try to get too high. I don’t try to get too low with any moment that’s been going on,” Cousins said. “It’s going to be a year full of ups and downs. So I’m moving steady through it all. Like I’ll maneuver through the bullsh—. I’ll tell you, I roll with the punches and I’m taking it day by day. And when it’s time to make decisions, you know, I’ll make decisions. But as of right now, I don’t give a sh—.”
Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3 million deal with the Warriors during the offseason while he was recovering from a torn left Achilles. He was cleared to play in January and the Warriors gradually increased his minutes.
“I’m happy to be playing basketball again. This is the game I love. I’m glad to be out there competing nightly. I’m glad to be healthy again,” Cousins said. “That’s all I’m focused on. And I just want to get better at my craft every day. Like everything else that’s coming with it, like, it doesn’t really matter to me. It is what it is.”
Cousins, a four-time All-Star, has averaged 15.9 points with 7.9 rebounds while shooting 48.5 percent from the field this season.
