I would be ok with Cousins if they go that route. Adds another dimension to the team. Cousins and Gobert on the floor together would be something to behold, even if Cousins is only 50% of his peak, which I believe he will be in limited minutes, or better.
My guess is that this was the day that his contract became fully guaranteed which also coincides with when teams can sign 10 day contracts. Hopefully the front office realizes that we need another big wing as well as a 3rd string center with Udoka likely done for the season.
