Two-time all-NBA center, though slowed by injuries, comes off productive stint in Milwaukee prior to release ahead of guarantee date.

DeMarcus Cousins, released on Thursday by the Bucks after a productive 17-game stint (averaging 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds in 16.9 minutes), has reportedly signed with the Nuggets. The move would mean a reunion with head coach Michael Malone, under whom Cousins once thrived in Sacramento.

Last season, the four-time All-Star played a combined 41 games with the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers averaging 8.9 points, 6.4 rebounds, 1.9 assists and 17.4 minutes.
