DeMarcus Cousins has signed a deal to stay with the Denver Nuggets for the remainder of the 2021-22 season, the team announced.

The deal comes after Cousins’ final 10-day contract expired over the weekend. He signed his first 10-day contract with the Nuggets in January after his non-guaranteed one-year deal with the Milwaukee Bucks came to an end.

The former All-Star is averaging 8.1 points and 5.9 rebounds in 25 games with the Bucks (17 games) and Nuggets (eight games) this season.
