The Golden State Warriors are looking at options to ensure that despite the problems caused by the Kevin Durant injury drama, they would still come out on top in the Western Conference. With the San Antonio Spurs of Kawhi Leonard, LaMarcus Aldridge and Danny Green gaining on them, the Stephen Curry team must hurry up and look for solutions to their playmaking. With a huge budget coming up this free agency season, a blockbuster DeMarcus Cousins trade is anticipated to be announced soon.

The DeMarcus Cousins trade to the New Orleans Pelicans made the Anthony Davis team a strong contender this NBA season. However, the former Sacramento Kings star has yet to fully make a mark in the Jrue Holiday team. Reports indicate that Boogie has been struggling to keep up with the pace of his new group. Will a Golden State Warriors transfer be the best option for him?

Rumors are rife that the Golden State Warriors are busy strategizing to come up with a good deal should they pursue a blockbuster DeMarcus Cousins trade. While others are skeptical over the possibility of the New Orleans big man to join the Kevin Durant squad, many feel that this might just work. These fans point to the successful Rio Olympics run of DeMarcus Cousins where he flourished and showed off his skills alongside Kevin Durant, Draymond Green and Klay Thompson.

At this point, no official comment has been given by the parties tagged in this NBA rumor. However, the Golden State Warriors are open to the fact that the next free agent season will be challenging for them.

"We've got 10 free agents; there are a lot of balls to juggle in the offseason. That's good, though, because I think we've developed a culture where players want to stay," shared GM Bob Myers of the Golden State Warriors' current lineup. The players in the list include Stephen Curry, Zaza Pachulia and Matt Barnes. David West and JaVale McGee are also set to become free agents soon. Even Andre Iguodala, James Michael McAdoo and Shaun Livingston are expected to hit the market this year. Roundign up the list is none other than superstar Kevin Durant who was granted the player option to be released from his contract after just one season with the Golden State Warriors.
