“Helluva year!” Cousins tweeted. “Grateful for every moment. Love to my brothers! We overcame a lot of bs this year and fought to the very end. Didn’t end the way we wanted but proud as ever how we finished this season. Got a taste of the big lights and I’m even hungrier for more!

The final sentence led many to interpret that Cousins will oppose the Warriors next season rather than play for them. The 28-year-old averaged 16.3 points and 8.2 rebounds in 30 games this season, which was interrupted by injuries.

Warriors coach Steve Kerr told reporters this week that he did not know whether Cousins would return. He acknowledged that other teams likely could offer more years and more money.

“I think there’s a chance,” Kerr said. “I would say that the hope is that frankly he can do a lot better financially than what we could offer him. But who knows. Every year is different.

“We have to figure out our own situation — particularly with Klay and Kevin — and how all that shakes out.

“But I could absolutely foresee a place for DeMarcus here if he wanted to come back. It’s just a question of what are his goals, what is out there for him.”
