DENVER (AP) – The Denver Nuggets signed four-time All-Star DeMarcus Cousins to a 10-day contract on Friday to support Nikola Jokic.
The 6-foot-10 Cousins will be eligible to play in six games for the Nuggets, starting Friday night in the game against Memphis.
The Cousins averaged 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17 games for Milwaukee, but were released this month when the Bucks wanted to open a list spot.
The Nuggets have limited great man depth behind the reigning MVP Jokic. Michael Porter Jr. (back surgery) is out and JaMychal Green is in COVID-19 protocols.
The Nuggets are the seventh team for the 31-year-old Cousins, who in recent years has been hampered by a torn Achilles tendon and torn ACL. He has career averages of 20.1 points and 10.4 rebounds.
