DeMarcus Cousins Signs Contract To Return To The Court

The closest DeMarcus Cousins got to returning to the NBA this season was a workout granted him by the Los Angeles Lakers last month. But no deal came of it, and Cousins is still looking for a way to return to the league. To that end, he's shockingly agreed to sign on with a team in Puerto Rico. 

Cousins is signing with the Guaynabo Mets of the Puerto Rican Professional Basketball League, with hopes of trying to "find a pathway back to the NBA" as it was put by NBA Insider Adrian Wojnarowski, who reported the news.   

Boogie clearly feels he still belongs in the Association, as just recently, he dropped his own truth bomb that he feels he'd still be the third-best center in the NBA (if he was playing in the NBA, that is). 

And just before the season began, he tried to answer his critics, while pleading for another NBA chance, saying he's "not some angry monster."

The former four-time All-Star was an absolute beast until a devastating series of leg injuries beginning in 2018 sapped him of his explosiveness. He's been bouncing around the league since then. 

Cousins, 32, will take his career 19.6 points and 10.2 boards to Puerto Rico, in yet another shot drawing some interest from an NBA team.
