The New Orleans Pelicans remain determined to re-sign DeMarcus Cousins and haven't been open to receiving trade offers.

Cousins will be a free agent this summer.

The Pelicans traded Buddy Hield and their 2017 first round choice as part of a package for Cousins last February.

Cousins is averaging nearly 26 points per game to go with 12.5 rebounds and 5.1 assists.
