Pelicans All-Star big man DeMarcus Cousins, who is out for the season with a torn achilles, will be a free agent this upcoming summer.
With an assist from my pal @shauntellowe … here’s a sample from this week’s @nytimes NBA newsletter in which @AntDavis23 discusses his determination to convince @boogiecousins to stay in New Orleans this summer: pic.twitter.com/7Nv1gX9FlI

I’m pretty confident that he’ll stay. From what I hear, he plans on it. But I’m going to keep selling the dream here. I’ll be very involved – I want him here.
Davis has taken his game to another level with Cousins sidelined, leading the Pelicans to fourth in the West at 37-26.
