It wasn’t too long ago that DeMarcus Cousins was taking the NBA world by storm.

Between his brash personality and physical play, he became one of the better players in the league and one of the most popular at that. Cousins, a four-time NBA All-Star and two-time Second-Team All-NBA is now out of the league and trying to make a comeback. 

According to a report from ESPN NBA insider Adrain Wojnarowski, Cousins is signing with the Guaynabo Mets of the Puerto Rican Professional Basketball League. Wojnarowski notes that the 32-year-old Cousins, who last appeared with the Denver Nuggets last season, will play in Puerto Rico this spring and will attempt an NBA comeback.

More known for his time with the Sacramento Kings (2010-17) than anywhere else, Cousins was one of the most dominant post players in the NBA. That continued after he was traded to the New Orleans Pelicans to be paired with Anthony Davis, but a once-promising career was derailed by a torn Achilles. Cousins signed a mid-level exception with the Golden State Warriors after not receiving any outstanding offers elsewhere.

Injuries continued to pile up for Cousins, who tore his left quadriceps in 2018 and then after signing a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers, he tore his ACL during an off-season pick-up game. Cousins never played for the Lakers and has since bounced around with the Clippers, Rockets, Bucks, and most recently, the Nuggets.

Cousins will now look to revive his basketball career in Puerto Rico.
