The Denver Nuggets are set to add a reinforcement for their frontcourt behind Nikola Jokic. Denver will sign DeMarcus Cousins to a 10-Day contract, as they look for reliable backup play behind their MVP.

Cousins was waived by the Milwaukee Bucks early in January. While with the Bucks, Cousins played in 17 games (five starts) and averaged 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds per game.

The Nuggets met with the big man shortly after Cousins was waived by Milwaukee to see if he would be a fit. With several players out due to injuries and illnesses, Denver deemed that Cousins was worth at least a 10-day look.
