The New Orleans Pelicans have been very active this offseason looking for ways to improve their roster through free agency.

But one of the organization’s busiest recruiters this summer has been All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins.

Pelicans coach Alvin Gentry–who is joining Cousins on a trip to Johannesburg, South Africa for this week’s NBA Africa Game 2017–said the Pelicans center has been courting players around the league to come to New Orleans. Gentry and Cousins talked to the media on a conference call while in South Africa on Thursday.

“He’s done a phenomenal job this year of helping recruit free agents,” Gentry said. “He’s talked to Rondo, he’s talked to Ian Clark, he’s talked to all of those guys that we’ve been trying to sign and he’s been very active in that.”

Cousins, who came to the Pelicans in a blockbuster trade on the night of the 2017 All-Star Game, said he’s worked tirelessly to help the front office bring more talent to the roster.
