DeMarcus Cousins isn’t signing with the Wizards.

Or anyone for the NBA’s resumption at Disney World.

Shams Charania of The Athletic:

Cousins tore his quad in the second game of the 2019 playoffs, rushed back for the NBA Finals then tore his ACL in August. No wonder Cousins, who also tore his Achilles in 2018, isn’t signing now.

The Lakers waived Cousins in February, when he was expected to miss the rest of the season and Los Angeles needed a roster spot for Markieff Morris. With the season delayed for coronavirus, that opened the door for Cousins returning elsewhere. But he won’t walk through it.
