Veteran center DeMarcus Cousins has been in limbo for quite some time due to injuries that have derailed his once-promising NBA career.

Now, Cousins has a chance at a fresh start once again after reportedly agreeing to a deal with the Houston Rockets.

Cousins missed all of last season after suffering a torn ACL before he could even play a game with the Los Angeles Lakers.

Despite speculation about returning to Los Angeles, the Lakers chose to trade JaVale McGee and clear cap space to sign one-time NBA champion Marc Gasol.

The Gasol signing essentially closed the door on Cousins’ return, and now he’ll suit up alongside James Harden and Russell Westbrook in Houston for the 2020-21 NBA season.
