Rockets Sign Free Agent DeMarcus Cousins
Posted: December 1, 2020 -- 2:15 p.m. CT
Tuesday afternoon, the Houston Rockets signed free agent center DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins (6'10", 270) was originally the fifth overall pick by Sacramento in the 2010 NBA Draft. The four-time All-Star appeared in 565 career games with 543 starts while averaging 21.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.42 steals, and 1.23 blocks. Cousins earned All-NBA Second Team honors in both 2014-15 and 2015-16.
He is one of 11 players in NBA history with career averages of at least 20.0 points per game, 10.0 rebounds per game, and 3.0 assists per game. Since steals and blocks became an official statistic in 1973-74, Hall of Famer Bob Lanier is the only other player with career averages of at least 20.0 points per game, 10.0 rebounds per game, 3.0 assists per game, 1.00 steals per game, and 1.00 block per game (Lanier played three seasons prior to steals and blocks being tracked).
