Mavs have no plans to sign DeMarcus Cousins
The Dallas Mavericks are satisfied with their roster and don’t have any plans to sign DeMarcus Cousins.
The Los Angeles Lakers will waive Cousins, who is still rehabbing his ACL injury.
Asked Mark Cuban if he thought anybody would kick the tires on DeMarcus Cousins and he said Mavs would have been interested “but we don’t have a roster spot and we don’t have anybod we want to let go.”

Mark Cuban on whether Mavs might kick tires on buyouts or released players: "We don’t have any roster spots. If we had an roster spot, we would probably do something, but we don’t. And there’s nobody we want to release."

The Mavs are 34-22 on the season entering Saturday. They are in seventh place in the Western Conference standings.
Cousins was actually linked to the Mavs back in the summer of 2018 when he was a free agent. That’s the offseason where he had to sign with the Golden State Warriors for cheap because no one was offering him a deal. Cousins was coming off a torn Achilles tendon he suffered with the New Orleans Pelicans in January.
The Mavs this season are led by Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis.
Doncic has appeared in 45 games for the Mavs this season. He’s averaging 29.0 points, 9.6 rebounds and 8.6 assists while shooting 46.6 percent from the field, 32.7 percent from beyond the arc and 76.5 percent from the free-throw line.
Porzingis, meanwhile, is putting up 18.6 points, 9.1 rebounds and 1.6 assists in his first season with the Mavs. The 24-year-old is shooting 41.8 percent from the floor, 35.3 percent from the 3-point line and 78.0 percent from the charity stripe.
