Cousin’s Contract Termination
Interestingly, it was report by ESPN one day earlier that the Rockets had just confirm their contract this season was guarantee. That means, even if the contract is terminate, Cousins will still get the full US $ 2.3 million in contract value. In addition, after the contract termination was formalize, Cousins was also entitle to join the team he want.
Cousins indeed had a hard time finding his best performance again after the Achilles injury in 2018 when he was still defending the New Orleans Pelicans. Its performance with the Rockets was very unstable. In the first 11 games, he only score 6.1 points with an accuracy of 26.3 percent. He was also sent off twice from the field.
However, at the end of January, Cousins seemed to find his rhythm. In the last 14 games he has play, the 30-year-old has average 12.4 points with an accuracy of 44.6 percent. In the Rockets’ last game against the Philadelphia 76ers, Cousins even perform nicely with 19 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.
Cousin’s New Team Queue List
In terms of the game, Cousins is still very problematic in defense. The problem that has been present since the beginning he played in the NBA. However, lately he has also been increasingly question in his decision making. On several occasions, Cousins seemed so eager to score that he ignored the team’s scheme. When he failed, without thinking he just made a foul.
However, it felt like if he managed to find a team that contained a few more veteran players than him, he could be even better. Take for example when he played for the Golden State Warriors, Cousins could actually play according to the portion given. The 34 percent accuracy of three point with nearly five tries per game is arguably quite up to the standards of modern flashlights in attack.
The teams that are suitable for using the services of Cousins are teams whose reserve ranks are less productive or are not in the flashlight position. The Los Angeles Lakers can count as Marc Gasol continues to decline physically and be involved in their attacks. The Portland Trail Blazers who lost Jusuf Nurkic also felt like they could take a glance at Cousins. The New York Knicks who lost Mitchell Robinson should also be on the queue list. Teams like the Toronto Raptors and Warriors who have also been struggling in the flashlight position also make perfect sense to see Cousins as their option.
