DeMarcus Cousins is changing teams, but not jersey numbers. During his introductory press conference, it was revealed that Cousins will wear No. 0 for the Warriors in the 2018-19 season.
Here's your first official look at Cousins as a Warrior:
For the first seven years of his career, Cousins wore No. 15 for the Kings before being traded to the Pelicans. Upon his arrival to New Orleans midway through the 2016-17 season, Cousins converted to No. 0.
Since being drafted in the second round of the 2016 NBA Draft, Patrick McCaw has worn No. 0 for the Warriors. "Let's just say Pat's a tough negotiator," Cousins said when asked about taking McCaw's number.

McCaw is currently a restricted free agent. Did Cousins just break news that the Warriors will re-sign the shooting guard?
