DeMarcus Cousins is headed to Wisconsin.

The Milwaukee Bucks and Cousins agreed to a one-year, non-guaranteed deal on Sunday afternoon, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Cousins has been a free agent since he spent last season with both the Houston Rockets and Los Angeles Clippers, the four-time All-Star’s first year back after missing the 2019-20 campaign recovering from an ACL injury. The 31-year-old averaged 8.9 points and 6.4 rebounds per contest in 41 games, mostly off the bench.

The Bucks will mark Cousins’ sixth team, following an initial six-year run with the Sacramento Kings and other small stints with the New Orleans Pelicans and Golden State Warriors before last season.

Milwaukee has been without center Brook Lopez for all but one game this season due to back issues. Though the Bucks have won six straight heading into Sunday’s game against the Indiana Pacers, the defending champions hold just the fifth-best record in the Eastern Conference 20 games into the season. Cousins’ help down low should help significantly as they wait for Lopez to return to full strength.
