Free-agent big man DeMarcus Cousins, who didn’t play during the 2019-20 campaign while rehabbing from a torn ACL, signed a one-year deal with the Houston Rockets on Monday. After the news, the three-time Super Bowl Champion and Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe shared his thoughts on Cousins joining the Rockets:

30-year-old center last saw the court during the 2018-19 season with Golden State and averaged 16.3 points, 8.2 rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.3 steals and 1.5 blocks in 25.7 minutes across 30 games.
