As the free agency market for former Golden State Warriors center DeMarcus Cousins continues to dry up, one location that has been gaining steam of late has been San Antonio, given Gregg Popovich's fondness for strong bigs and DeMar DeRozan's attempts to recruit Boogie.

Spurs fans have even put up billboards in San Marcos, showing Cousins photoshopped into a Spurs jersey and a line from a Brooks & Dunn song that references his nickname.

After putting up 16.3 points and 8.2 boards per game as the fourth scoring option on a Warriors team that made the Finals, Boogie still has plenty of gas left in the tank. However, his injury history and defensive struggles against faster teams that like to shoot made him less and less valuable with each passing year.

However, in a Popovich system that shot fewer threes than anyone last year and still vales the back-to-the-basket big man, Cousins would feel right at home.

While it's been hard to watch the former best big man in the game struggle over the last year or so, Boogie has a home an prominent offensive role waiting for him in San Antonio.
