The Denver Nuggets are planning to sign free-agent center DeMarcus Cousins to a 10-day contract, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic.

Milwaukee Bucks waived Cousins on Thursday, a little over a month, after signing the veteran.

The 31-year-old had a productive stint in Milwaukee, averaging 9.0 points and 5.8 rebounds in 17 games (five starts).

A four-time NBA All-Star holds career averages of 20.1 points, 10.4 rebounds, and 3.1 assists over 623 duels.

After spending the first five years of his career with the Sacramento Kings, Cousins was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans midway through his sixth season, where he ultimately suffered an Achilles injury.

After 30 games with the Golden State Warriors in 2018-19, he sat out the 2019-20 season with an ACL injury before playing with the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers in 2020-21.

During his prime, Cousins has averaged 22 to 27 points a game as well as a double-double from 2013-18.
