DeMarcus Cousins speaks with the media ahead of the 2020-21 NBA season

As teams open camps, the Houston Rockets made the biggest move of the week with the trade of Russell Westbrook to the Washington Wizards for point guard John Wall and a future first-round draft pick, and DeMarcus Cousins is excited to be a part of it.

“I think we have all the pieces to make a lot of noise this season, obviously on paper it looks great but we have to come out there and put it all together,” the oft-injured Cousins told reporters at the Rockets media day.

Cousins last played in an NBA game with the Warriors in the 2018-19 season before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers but tore his ACL and never suited up for the 2019-20 season and was waived just weeks before the pandemic shut down the NBA in March.

Houston signed the 6’10” Cousins to a one year non-guaranteed contract on Monday (November 30) and the former All-Star will now be reunited with his old University of Kentucky teammate Wall.

Wall has spent his entire nine-year career with the Wizards but the 30-year-old missed the 2019-20 campaign through injury and played only 32 games the season prior.

The move comes amid widespread reports that 2018 MVP James Harden, the league’s leading scorer, was seeking a trade from the Rockets after the departure of the team’s head coach and general manager.
