Bay Area Reporter Marcus Thompson is reporting Cauley-Stein is going to sign with the Golden State Warriors.

This means Golden State went from having just one big to three within the matter of less than 24 hours.

He'll now have different representation as he looks for a new team this summer.

Not only is the latest report indicating that the former All-Star big man will have trouble finding a new National Basketball Association home, Cousins' shift in agent representation seems to reflect this line of thinking. With that in mind, Cousins has had drama following him pretty much his entire career, so Boston signing him would undo a lot of what Danny Ainge has been trying to accomplish. It seemed like a low-risk, high-reward move for both sides.

Cousins quickly showed a massive decline in productiveness.

At this stage in free agency only one max player remains, Kawhi Leonard, and the two Los Angeles teams are sitting on north of $30 million apiece in cap space.

Cousins returned for a mixed-bag Finals appearance that saw him display some of his finesse and touch around the rim, but struggle to get up and down the court.

ESPN's Zach Lowe mentioned that Cauley-Stein could make slightly more than the minimum in the deal. He displayed great durability, playing in 81 games and logging over 2,000 minutes. "I don't think that's there for him".

In an attempt to shake things up, Cousins switched agents today and is hopeful that he will land a contract in the coming days.

Kevon Looney proved to be a dependable defender for the Warriors last season.
