Miami Heat attempted to sign DeMarcus Cousins last summer, according to Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

“For Heat fans wondering about DeMarcus Cousins, who was released by the Lakers this week to make room for Markieff Morris, keep in mind that even though the Heat likes Cousins and pursued him last summer, there’s no indication he’s looking to leave South California,” Jackson reported.

The Los Angeles Lakers waived Cousins on Sunday, but he is still going to rehab his ACL injury with the team.
