Per Adam Himmelsbach of the Boston Globe, the Celtics learned of Cousins’ interest in Boston, but he had already signed with Golden State before they could make an offer.

Chris Mannix of Yahoo Sports added that he “wouldn’t overstate DeMarcus Cousins interest in Boston.”

According to ESPN’s Chris Haynes, DeMarcus Cousins narrowed his choices down to the Golden State Warriors and Boston Celtics, before ultimately choosing to join the defending champions.

An hour before Haynes’ report came out, Yahoo’s Shams Charania broke the news that Cousins was signing with Golden State on a one-year, $5.3 million deal. As ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reported, the 6-11 center is aiming to return from a torn achilles in December or January.
