Houston Rockets to Waive DeMarcus Cousins

The DeMarcus Cousins experience in Houston is over. 

The Rockets are releasing the center after mutually agreeing to part ways, according to The Athletic. 

The 30-year-old former All-Star should have plenty of interest on the buyout market. 

Signed to a $2.3 million minimum deal, Cousins averaged 9.6 points and 7.6 rebounds in 25 games with the Rockets. 

According to ESPN, Cousins wanted more playing time after being in a reserve role behind rising star Christian Wood
