Davis hoping to 'reconnect' with Cousins down the line

Anthony Davis would like to play with DeMarcus Cousins again.

Davis and Cousins played together with the New Orleans Pelicans last season and had some success, but the latter suffered an Achilles injury and missed the end of the campaign as well as the playoffs.

Cousins signed a one-year, $5.3million deal with the Golden State Warriors after the season. He has yet to play a game as he is still recovering from his injury.

"He will be a free agent next year," Davis told ESPN after the Pelicans' loss to the Warriors on Wednesday. "Hopefully, down the line we can reconnect."

The Pelicans won their first-round series over the Portland Trail Blazers, but fell to the Warriors in the second round last season.

"Of course, it was a s*** situation," Davis said. "But I felt like we had something going. I think if he would have played in the playoff series against the Warriors it would be different."

Cousins has not said anything about his plans for 2019 when he will be a free agent once again.

Davis is averaging 25.2 points and 13.0 rebounds this season. He will be a free agent after 2020-21.
