Four-time All-Star center Sources told ESPN on Tuesday that DeMarcus Cousins will sign with the Guaynabo Mets of the Puerto Rico Professional Basketball League.
Sources said the 32-year-old Cousins will play in the spring season with Guenabo in hopes of finding a way back to the NBA next season. The league, Baloncesto Superior Nacional, has included several former NBA players in recent years.
Cousins has played for seven teams in 13 seasons, but was not signed up to an NBA roster through the 2022-23 season. He made All-Star teams with the Sacramento Kings and New Orleans Pelicans in back-to-back seasons starting in 2015, but a series of knee injuries affected the trajectory of his career.
Cousins averaged 19.6 points and 10.2 rebounds in his career, and was a dominant league center with the Kings, including the 2016-17 season with averages of 27.8 points and 10.6 rebounds.
Cousins has kept fit this season and had a workout with the Los Angeles Lakers, but did not receive an offer to sign with a team after playing 48 complete games with Denver and Milwaukee in 2021-22.
