Mailbag Answers Part 2: Going more in-depth on DeMarcus Cousins and whether Rui Hachimura can be a small forward

Hi all,

This is a continuation of our mailbag answers from last Friday, Oct. 16. I’m going to post the original questions from last Friday again and we also had some additional comments from our writers.

Hope you enjoy!


What are the odds we pursue someone like Demarcus Cousins in free agency? (ALAddison93)

Kevin Broom: Cousins is talented, but he’s suffered several major injuries. More importantly, Tommy Sheppard is trying to change the team’s culture and Cousins hasn’t made a reputation for maturity. I could see the Wizards talking with him, but I think they’d need convincing that he’s healthy, that he’ll accept a role and that he’s matured.
