The Milwaukee Bucks are signing free agent center DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins has not played in the NBA this season. He was waived by the LA Clippers at the end of the 2021 preseason.
Cousins will be signing a non-guaranteed veteran minimum contract with the Bucks. Milwaukee was one of seven NBA teams with an open roster spot. The Bucks have been without center Brook Lopez for all but one game this season. Lopez has been sidelined due to back soreness.
Last season, Cousins played in 41 combined games with the Clippers and Houston Rockets. Cousins averaged 8.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per game in his 10th season in the NBA.
