The Sixers made a colossal mistake in 2010 when they drafted the mediocre Evan Turner with the second pick in the draft when DeMarcus Cousins was available.

Now, it appears they can have a mulligan.

ESPN’s NBA insider Brian Windhorst mused about what the offseason will most likely bring to big name free-agent Cousins.

“I don’t think DeMarcus Cousins is looking at a make good contract, even if it’s more than a minimum. I think that after a series of injuries he’s had, all of which indicates that he’s coming back too fast, doing too much, he needs even more time of coming back from this. He’s gonna have a job in the league, but I don’t think it’s gonna be a big money,” the NBA insider said.

According to Windhorst, the Lakers are more likely of keeping Dwight Howard, to see what they can ‘squeeze’ out of him one more season, than having ‘a mystery’ with DeMarcus Cousins.
