Anthony Davis has interest in playing with DeMarcus Cousins again in the future.

The New Orleans Pelicans chose not to aggressively attempt to re-sign Cousins in the offseason following his Achilles injury.

"He will be a free agent next year. Hopefully, down the line we can reconnect," Davis said.

Cousins is aware of Davis' interest in him re-signing with New Orleans, a source said.

"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."

The Pelicans would essentially have to part with Julius Randle and Nikola Mirotic to create cap space to sign Cousins in 2019.
