Seems like DeMarcus Cousins days in Houston have come to an end. Just a few days after making his contract fully-guaranteed, the Rockets have decided to part ways with the center.
The Athletic's Shams Charania reported the news.
The Houston Rockets and center DeMarcus Cousins are planning to part ways in coming days, sources tell @TheAthletic @Stadium. Houston wants to go smaller, younger in frontcourt when Christian Wood returns and this allows Cousins to find an opportunity elsewhere.— Shams Charania (@ShamsCharania) February 20, 2021
Cousins, who has showed he’s healthy and impactful this season, averaged 9.4 points and 7.6 rebounds in 25 games for Stephen Silas squad.
The Athletic's Shams Charania added that people in the organization ''have expressed positive feedback about Cousins’ professionalism and play during his time in Houston.''
The 30 year-old, who used to be considered as the best center in the NBA, made four consecutive All-Star teams from 2015-18 and even averaged 25.2 points per game on 46.6 percent shooting in five seasons.
