DeMarcus Cousins returns to the NBA a few days after parting ways with the reigning champions Milwaukee Bucks.

The veteran big man spent a few weeks with the Bucks, signing with the team on November 30. However, Milwaukee went on to waive him to keep a roster spot open. He averaged 9.1 points, 5.8 rebounds and 16.9 minutes in 17 games with the defending champions.

Now, he is about to joining the Denver Nuggets on a 10-day contract. DeMarcus Cousins will reunite with head coach Michael Malone, under whom he played in Sacramento (2013-2014).
