The Houston Rockets are reportedly cutting DeMarcus Cousins loose.

According to Shams Charania, the talented NBA center will be released very soon and will be able to sign anywhere he wants in the league. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

While Cousins might not be the dominant NBA star he once was, he’s still an incredibly talented player.

I have no doubt at all that there will be several contenders who get on the phone to inquire about his availability.

When he’s on his A-game, we’re talking about one of the most dominant big men in the league. If he can give a contender a solid 15-20 minutes a night down the stretch, then he’s worth every single penny he’ll be paid.

He doesn’t need to be his old self in order to make a huge impact on the court. He just needs to bang around down low, grab some rebounds and score a little.

If he can do that, then he’ll be worth the cost of his deal.

The only question now is where will he land!
