Former Kentucky Wildcats center DeMarcus Cousins, who was among the best big men in the NBA for a few seasons, has agreed to a deal with the Taiwan Beer Leopards.

Cousins is set for a 10-day, four-game contract and is expected to join the team in 2024. The four-time NBA All-Star big man has suffered many injuries throughout his professional career, including a torn Achilles and torn quad, among many other setbacks.

He last played for the Denver Nuggets in the 2021-2022 season and split his 48 games between the Nuggets and Milwaukee Bucks. At his best, Cousins averaged 27.8 points per game with the Kings.

Now, he’ll get a chance to take his talents to Taiwan and see what level he can still compete at. That said, this news was released by ESPN reporter Adrian Wojnarowski.

The Beer Leopards are a member of Taiwan’s T1 League.

Best of luck to Boogie as he looks to keep his hoops career going!
