DeMarcus Cousins speaks out on signing with Rockets

Rockets, DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins is signing a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets after missing the entire 2019-20 season recovering from his left ACL tear.

Cousins was a member of the Los Angeles Lakers up until February. The former All-Star big man is grateful the Rockets are giving him a chance in Clutch City, per Marc J. Spears of The Undefeated.

Chris Haynes of Yahoo Sports reported that DeMarcus Cousins worked out for the Rockets on Monday and impressed the organization.

Cousins has career NBA averages of 21.2 points, 10.9 rebounds and 3.2 assists in 565 games with the Sacramento Kings, New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors. The Rockets, who are dealing with James Harden and Russell Westbrook’s trade requests, have to be hoping that the addition of Cousins will change Harden and Westbrook’s mind about wanting out of Houston.

Cousins used to be a superstar in the NBA. However, his Achilles tear with the Pelicans, quad tear with the Warriors and ACL tear with the Lakers have ruined what was going to be a Hall of Fame career for Boogie.

The entire basketball world is praying Cousins can stay healthy with the Rockets and reclaim his place as one of the best centers in the league. Moving forward, though, all eyes are going to be on Harden and Westbrook and whether or not they will stay in Houston.
