DeMarcus Cousins On Not Being On An NBA Roster: “I Would Love To Get A Real Answer”


DeMarcus Cousins, who celebrates his 33rd birthday today, isn’t the same player he was when he was still with the Sacramento Kings, but the big man can still provide decent minutes as a bench player, as last shown in the 2021-22 season when he played for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Denver Nuggets.

Cousins averaged 9.1 points and 5.8 rebounds on 46.6% shooting from the field in 17 games for the Bucks before getting waived and being picked up by the Nuggets, where the veteran center then averaged 8.9 points and 5.5 rebounds on 45.6% shooting in 31 games.

His bench production should at least have given him a chance to play in the NBA this past season, but Cousins found himself with very limited market and unable to get on an active roster.

Cousins genuinely believes he still has a place in the NBA. In an appearance on SiriusXM NBA Radio, the four-time NBA All-Star said that he would love to get a real answer as to why he isn’t on an NBA roster at the moment. 


“I’m the type of guy that whenever I go through my hard times, my hardships, I look at myself first. What can I do to better myself? That’s something I pride myself on,” said Cousins. “I’ve asked many questions. I’ve reached out to former teams. I kind of get sugar coated answers. I can never really get the raw honest truth. I’ve struggled with that as well. I would love to get a real answer.”
