DeMarcus Cousins agrees to one-year deal with Rockets

DeMarcus Cousins of the Golden State Warriors

According to reports, Boogie Cousins has agreed to a deal with the Houston Rockets.

Cousins, 30, missed all of last season after tearing his left ACL in the summer of 2019 as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers. But in the postseason for the first time in his National Basketball Association career, Cousins suffered a torn quadriceps in the second game of Golden State's first-round series.

Over the past three seasons, Cousins has managed just 78 games due to injuries. The Rockets also had interest in Cousins before the NBA's restart in July.

ESPN's Tim MacMahon says the deal is for one year. The Lakers beat the Miami Heat for the National Basketball Association title a little more than a month ago.

Cousins joined the Los Angeles Lakers for a one-year, $3.5 million contract on July 6, 2019, then suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament on August 19, 2019, during a workout in Las Vegas.

Cousins was waived by the Lakers back in February 2020 but was still allowed to continue rehabbing at the teams "El Segundo" training facility. The four-time All-Star averaged 21.1 points and 10.8 rebounds over seven seasons in Sacramento.
