Steve Kerr: We’d like to help DeMarcus Cousins win a championship and sign a great contract somewhere else

Steve Kerr does not expect DeMarcus Cousins to be on the Warriors’ roster next season.

Golden State inked the 28-year-old center, who is sidelined as he continues to rehab from a torn Achilles, to a one-year deal in the offseason. Kerr said it’s unlikely Cousins will be with Golden State in 2019-20.

“We made no bones about it when we signed him,” the Golden State coach told reporters Thursday (via the Bay Area News Group). “This is a one-year deal and we’re not going to have money to sign him next year.

“So, we’d like to help him win a championship and sign a great contract somewhere else. That’s the reality.”

The Warriors hold an 8-1 record this season. They’ll face the Timberwolves on Friday.
