Rockets, DeMarcus Cousins To Part Ways In 'Coming Days' 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sat Feb 20, 2021 11:18 pm

The Houston Rockets are planning to part ways to DeMarcus Cousins in the "coming days," sources told Shams Charania of The Athletic.


The Rockets are looking to go smaller and younger in the front court once Christian Wood returns.


Cousins is averaging 9.4 points and 7.6 rebounds in 25 minutes.


Cousins' professionalism has received positive feedback during his time in Houston.

They guaranteed his contract to just release him? I didn’t know the NBA practiced severance packages.

i hate that he might go to broolyn but he didnt like the harden departure so maybe not.
the wizards need him but he wont go.
the celtics or portland seem like spots that make the most sense. i like him on bucks too.

I love how everyone thinks an injury prone nutcase who's shooting 37 percent is going to put some team over the top lol.

I'd like to see the Mavericks sign him, but the Lakers are clearly the best fit, unless they burned their bridges with him. If so Brooklyn looks like a likely landing spot.

New York has a better record, don't drag the Knicks into the Rockets current disarray. :roll:
