DeMarcus Cousins is reportedly close to finding a new home, with the Denver Nuggets planning to sign the big man to a 10-day contract, according to The Athletic's Shams Charania.
The 31-year-old was waived by the Milwaukee Bucks this week to open a roster spot and in Denver, he would form a strong center rotation behind reigning MVP Nikola Jokic.
He would also reunite with former coach Mike Malone who was with the Sacramento Kings in 2013-14.
Cousins, who has struggled with injuries in recent seasons, split time last season between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers after missing the entire 2019-20 season due to an ACL injury.
He was productive in his stint in Milwaukee, averaging 9.0 points, 5.8 rebounds in 17 games (five starts).
According to The Undefeated's Marc Spears, Cousins will first meet with Nuggets President Tim Connelly "before a contract is officially offered."
