On the morning of July 2, DeMarcus Cousins called Bob Myers to let the general manager know that he was very interested in signing with the Warriors.
Before any sort of verbal agreement, Myers and Steve Kerr wanted Cousins to speak with several Warriors players.
Weeks ago, we learned from Marc Spears of The Undefeated that "Stephen Curry’s excitement surprised Cousins and even pushed him towards the Bay Area even more."
We also learned from Shams Charania that "the Warriors’ recruitment was led by Green."
So what exactly did Draymond say to Cousins?
"Man, Draymond probably had the worst pitch (laughter) -- 'Cuz, I'm pretty sure me and you are gonna fight (laughter)...
"But nah nah -- Draymond, that's my guy," Cousins said to ESPN's Chris Haynes. "I respect him as a player, I respect him as a competitor. I want that guy on my team every day. I think me and Draymond mesh well, I think we have a lot of similarities.
"The same way he's appreciated, hopefully I can receive the same thing."
