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.
