Boogie Cousins called Warriors president of basketball operations Bob Myers to discuss joining the team.
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.
Bada Bing Bada Booom. Bada Bing Bada Boom!!!

The conversations sealed the deal, Cousins said, and he called Myers around 8 p.m. ET to say he would sign.

Golden State used its taxpayer midlevel exception to reach a deal with Cousins, who underwent surgery in late January to repair the torn Achilles.
He has been rehabilitating the injury and told Spears he is aiming to be recovered by training camp. The NBA continues to dominate the off season.
