DeMarcus Cousins stays a free agent heading to the 2022-23 NBA season, but that may not be the case for long.
The four-time All-Star is putting within the work this offseason, and by the looks of it, his efforts are paying off. In a recent practice run, Cousins appeared to get slimmer and in higher conditioning than he was before. He could be seen moving with ease, all while using his height and big frame to attack the basket and dominate.
If that doesn’t pique the interest of NBA execs, we don’t know what’s going to.
While DeMarcus Cousins’ attitude was an issue up to now, that doesn’t appear to be the case now. As he tries to re-establish his presence within the NBA as well, he has consistently worked and grabbed the opportunities given to him.
He split his time between the Milwaukee Bucks and Denver Nuggets last season. He filled a necessity for Milwaukee in the course of the absence of Brook Lopez, putting up 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17 games with the then-reigning champions.
After the Bucks waived him, he signed multiple 10-day contracts with the Nuggets before getting an official deal. He recorded averages of 8.9 points, 5.5 rebounds and 1.7 assists in 31 outings for the team.
Given the huge transformation he has undergone, we won’t be surprised to see any news of a DeMarcus signing coming out any time soon.
