Bucks signing center Cousins to deal, sources say

News

The Milwaukee Bucks are signing four-time All-Star center DeMarcus Cousins, sources told ESPN on Sunday.

Cousins, 31, will sign a non-guaranteed deal to join the defending NBA champions, sources said. Teams must guarantee contracts for the balance of the season by January 7.

The Bucks have been without center Brook Lopez with a back injury and needed some more size to bolster their frontline. Cousins played parts of the 2020-2021 season with the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers, including some significant stretches of good play in the Clippers’ run to the Western Conference Finals.

Cousins has averaged 20.4 points and 10.6 rebounds in his 10 year NBA career, which includes two significant lower legs injuries in recent years — a torn ACL and an Achilles tear. He was a four-time All-Star and a two-time All-NBA second-team selection (2015 and 2016).

He played seven years with the Sacramento Kings until a traded to New Orleans in 2017, and signed successive free agent deals with Golden State, Houston, the Clippers and now the Bucks.
