In all seriousness, this could be a fascinating pairing as Cousins is that rarest of birds in the NBA these days – a legitimate, double-team-demanding post man – and Davis is an amazing talent who is toiling mostly in anonymity in the Big Easy.
Or it might not work out at all and Cousins will find another new team after next season.
However, Yahoo! Sports reports this might not be the biggest deal out there to be made.
If you are an NBA free agent fan like me and mostly just want to see entertaining playoffs, the Celtics are a team to watch because they seem to have the best chance of actually challenging Cleveland’s march through a usually weak East…
On the college basketball front, Dayton won, Wright State won, Miami won, Cincinnati won and Ohio State lost.
The biggest game in college basketball tonight will be played in Columbus as the 12th-ranked Ohio State women play host to No. 2 Maryland.
The season began with high hopes in Columbus, but coach Kevin McGuff’s team hasn’t quite looked like a Final Four squad yet.
The Buckeyes still have high-scoring point guard Kelsey Mitchell, but they’ve spent most of the season searching for consistency on the defensive end while figuring out how to keep a mostly new cast around Mitchell all involved on offense against elite teams.
Tonight they’ll still be without Stephanie Mavunga, the Big Ten’s leading rebounder, but freshman Tori McCoy has the look of a future star playing the pivot in her absence.
Two-time defending Big Ten champ Maryland comes in having only lost to unbeaten Connecticut this season. The Terrapins have back stars Brionna Jones and Shatori Walker-Kimbrough and have added a very talented freshman class including point guard Destiny Slocum.
Ohio State is the only Big Ten team to beat Maryland since the Terps joined the league two years ago, and a win tonight would put McGuff’s team in position to clinch a share of the Big Ten title by closing out the regular season with a win at Rutgers (6-21) on Sunday…
Speaking of Ohio State, Urban Meyer became the latest major coach to tell Dunbar running back Tavion Thomas he wants him to play for him in two years.
The junior’s whirlwind recruiting journey continued over the weekend as Meyer extended an Ohio State offer to Thomas, who was also offered by Alabama and Georgia last week...
Truly truly blessed to receive my 18 offer from thee University of Ohio State#GoBuckeyes really amazing coaches
Although spring training started last week, nothing has really happened yet.
The closest thing would probably be Bryan Price confirming he wants to see four of his guys – holdovers Tony Cingrani, Raisel Igleasias and Michael Lorenzen and free agent-signee Drew Storen – get some saves this season.
I am on the record supporting the idea of what's being call a "hybrid bullpen approach." Surely not every team can handle it, but there is a lot to like about the idea of sticking with a hot hand from the seventh to the eighth or the eighth to the ninth on a given day rather than insisting on sitting down that pitcher in favor of the predetermined closer. This is especially true if you don't have Aroldis Chapman or Mariano Rivera in your bullpen.
But there is conventional wisdom (that is pretty young in the grand scheme of baseball’s 14-plus decades) that says relievers thrive in more defined roles, so we’ll see how it works out.
