Clippers Set to Sign DeMarcus Cousins

DeMarcus Cousins has found himself a new squad.

The Los Angeles Clippers have agreed to sign the veteran big man once he clears health and safety protocols, per The Athletic.

Cousins, 30, is currently starting testing protocols in Los Angeles, and will eventually join a front court consisting of versatile floor-spacer Serge Ibaka and Ivica Zubac.

Cousins has been through a litany of brutal injuries over the past few years. From a ruptured Achilles to a torn ACL to a quad injury, his lower body has been through the wringer.

This season, Cousins landed with the Houston Rockets, where he averaged 9.6 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists in just over 20 minutes per game before being released.

While he's not the game-breaking destroyer he once was in his prime (he averaged 27 points and 11 rebounds in the 2016-17 season), he can still offer the Clippers veteran big-man depth.

Boogie still has underrated passing skills, as well as his ability to bomb from deep considering he's converted over 35% of his triples in three of his past four seasons not including this one.
