The Milwaukee Bucks are adding some size to their defending-championship lineup by agreeing to a one-year contract with free-agent centre DeMarcus Cousins, according to multiple reports.

Cousins, a four-time all-star, split last season between the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers, scoring 8.9 points and 6.4 rebounds in 41 games, mostly off the bench.

He missed the entire 2019-20 season with an ACL injury.

In 606 career games with the Pelicans, Kings, Warriors, Rockets and Clippers, has a double-double career average of 20.4 points and 10.6 rebounds.
