DeMarcus Cousins is confident that he will still be playing for the New Orleans Pelicans after the Feb. 8 trade deadline. Cousins will become a free agent this offseason.

“I am confident in my team,” Cousins said. “I am starting to understand this business a lot more than I did before. You can kind of tell when things are about to come about. We’re a very competitive team. A talented team. I don’t think that will be the case at all.”

Cousins also said Davis has been working on making sure he re-signs with New Orleans.
