The moment Boogie found out he was a Warrior 👀

In a development that shocked the NBA world, the Warriors have agreed to a deal with former Pelicans and Kings center DeMarcus Cousins, worth $5.3 million for next season.
Cousins’ decision to join the Warriors happened almost overnight. After not receiving any offers during the first two days of the free agency period — likely due to the fact that Cousins is coming off a serious Achilles injury — Cousins called Golden State general manager Bob Myers on Monday to discuss joining the team, according to Chris Haynes of ESPN.
After the details had been discussed, Cousins said he had “great” conversations with Stephen Curry, Kevin Durant and Draymond Green, all of whom were his teammates on Team USA.
“Every guy was excited,” he said.
The conversations sealed the deal, Cousins said, and he called Myers around 8 p.m. ET to say he would sign.
