Although, reports suggested that DeMarcus Cousins will sit out the NBA restart, his agent-Jeff Schwartz- said that his client has not ruled out signing with a team for the season resume.
With the league moving forward to the transaction window on Tuesday, many players had already ruled themselves out for the Orlando ‘bubble’.
According to Tania Ganguli of the Los Angeles Times:
Cousins could have an opportunity to officially be part of an NBA team again this week. He has not ruled out signing with a team to finish out the season in the NBA bubble in Orlando, Fla., according to his agent, Jeff Schwartz. But it would have to be a situation in which he feels comfortable to play rather than continue his rehab.
Cousins tore his ACL last August, after he was signed by the Lakers in July. That was his second serious injury in two years, after he tore an Achilles tendon in January 2018 and missed the rest of the season for the New Orleans Pelicans.
Several players have ruled out the possibility to play in Orlando in order to rehab (John Wall, Kevin Durant) or prevent serious injuries that may cost them in the upcoming free agency (Davis Bertans).
