WITH James Harden and Russell Westbrook seeking trades, the Houston Rockets continue their offseason makeover with another big man signing.
Houston is finalizing a deal with DeMarcus Cousins after a deal to acquire big man Christian Wood from the Detroit Pistons, according to reports.
Cousins, who signed with the Los Angeles Lakers last season but injured his knee during a workout and never got to play with the eventual champions, is expected to get minimum pay on a non-guaranteed deal with the Rockets.
Harden reportedly turned down the Rockets’ offer of a $103 million extension as he seeks a move to the Brooklyn Nets.
Westbrook is also seeking a new team, apparently determined to get back to his role as scoring leader, after one year sharing court with Harden.
