By Eurohoops Team /

DeMarcus Cousins ​​could not get a guarantee contract from the teams due to the injuries he suffered at the beginning of the year because he was away from the flooring for a long time.

Yildiz Uzun managed to secure his contract of $ 2.3 million with his performance with the Houston Rockets jersey in the 2020-21 season. According to the report of ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Rockets secured Cousins’ non-guaranteed contract until the end of the year.

The teams had until February 27 to determine the outcome of non-guaranteed contracts.

Cousins ​​signed a veteran minimum contract with the Houston Rockets on December 1, after missing the entire 2019-20 season. Cousins, who normally signed with the Los Angeles Lakers for the last season, could not play for the year due to a cruciate ligament injury during his summer training and was released by the Lakers.

Cousins ​​has been dealing with injury issues since January 2018. Cousins, who was injured from the Achilles tendon in the match he played against the Rockets during his time in Pelicans, signed with the Golden State Warriors in the 2018-19 season to prove himself. However, due to injuries he suffered, he was able to wear a total of 30 matches throughout the season.

Cousins, one of the league’s most important talents before his injury, was elected All-Star 4 times in a row from 2015 to 2018. Cousins ​​had averaged 25.2 points in 5 seasons from 2014 to 2018 and shot 46.6% from the field.

Cousins ​​has shown that he can be a productive role player, although he has not fully reverted to his old form so far. Trying to catch up with the playoff race and also being restructured, Cousins, who is in the second place in his team with 7.6 rebounds per game, achieved an average of 9.6 points in 25 games this season.
