Report: Nuggets to sign DeMarcus Cousins to 10-day-contract

DeMarcus Cousins ​​is reportedly close to finding a new home, and the Denver Nuggets plan to sign the big man to a 10-day contract. according to The Athletic’s Shams Charania.

The Milwaukee Bucks gave up the 31-year-old this week to open a spot on the roster and in Denver, he would form a solid center rotation behind reigning MVP Nikola Jokic.

He would also meet former coach Mike Malone, who was with the Sacramento Kings in 2013-14.

Cousins, who has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, split time last season between the Houston Rockets and the Los Angeles Clippers after missing the entire 2019-20 season due to an ACL injury.

He was productive in his time in Milwaukee, averaging 9.0 points, 5.8 rebounds in 17 games (five starts).

According to Marc Spears of The Undefeated, Cousins ​​will first meet with Nuggets president Tim Connelly “before a contract is officially offered.”
