Free agency is in full swing for DeMar DeRozan and DeMarcus Cousin Cousins.
While they may be in their 30s, they could be looking at the biggest paydays of their careers.
The Sacramento Kings have made their intentions known regarding Cousins, who signed a four-year, $70 million deal with the Los Angeles Clippers last month.
They have made it clear that they want to keep Cousins, but will likely offer him the chance to go elsewhere if the price is right.
According to ESPN’s Marc Stein, that is the possibility.
DeRezan will be the first player to be a free agent this season, and the team may also attempt to re-sign Cousins in the offseason.
If they do, he’ll be a restricted free agent.ESPN’s Chris Mannix reported on Sunday that the Sacramento Kings will be looking for at least a one-year deal with DeRuzan, while ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported on Tuesday that the team has reached a two-year contract with Cousins.
Cousins has played just six games this season due to injury, and he is averaging 15.6 points, 9.5 rebounds and 3.0 assists per game.
The Kings are also looking for another big body to play alongside DeRosa in the backcourt, as the duo has struggled to stay on the court together.
DeMarcus has been able to keep the Kings afloat with his defense, but he is no longer the team’s primary scoring option.
The two are still shooting 46.4 percent from the field, but they are not shooting well from three-point range, as well.
DeRozans contract is the largest contract for any player signed in the league this offseason, but the Kings are likely to make a bigger offer this time around.
They may even try to sign Cousins, the only player on their current roster who is not under contract.
If Cousins opts to return to Sacramento, he will be entering the final year of his contract and will be eligible for an extension.
He is scheduled to become a free Agent on March 9.
