Cousins has one more year on his contract to take him to the summer of 2018 as a free agent, but if he were to re-sign like Spears suggests then the trade would be more than worth it. They get a big man who can actually post people up and would force teams to double the post and open up space for their shooters, which Tristan Thompson does not do right now.
