Look, I don’t think it’s going to work, but it should be Denver’s prerogative to look far and wide for center options that can help the team. Perhaps Boogie can do that, especially in short stints.
I’m as curious as everyone else. – 8:47 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
If Boogie balls out for Mike Malone in Denver, it might be enough for some Kings fans to just call it. – 8:45 PM

Adam Mares @Adam_Mares
I gotta say, I am pretty excited for the Jokic-Boogie-Malone era. Nervous. But excited. – 8:43 PM

Monte Poole @MontePooleNBCS
Asked if the Warriors might be interested in adding DeMarcus Cousins (now available), Steve Kerr says that’s a personnel issue. In short, no. – 5:10 PM

Frank Madden @fmaddenNBA
The Boogie waiver debate has me thinking of the most randomly controversial Bucks moves of the past few decades. I’ll start: in 2009 I was really annoyed the Bucks didn’t match the Wolves’ four-year, $16m offer sheet for Ramon Sessions. – 12:56 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
The #Bucks have officially requested waivers on big man DeMarcus Cousins. A roughly $2+ million tax bill was also going to come along with keeping him for the rest of the season.

Joe Cowley @JCowleyHoops
I guess Boogie can’t play anymore in the eyes of some stay-at-home amateur scouts, but in 17 games with the Bucks he averaged 9 and 6, hit 13 threes and had 8 blocks. He would instantly be the second-best big man on the Bulls roster. – 12:48 PM

Justin Garcia @tmjgarcia
Boogie was a great band-aid for this team when they needed it most, but he was essentially the big man equivalent to signing Brandon Jennings in 2018. I’m honestly floored by the overwhelming negative reaction to the decision to move on – 11:55 AM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
The Bucks decided to move on from DeMarcus Cousins.

The overwhelming disappointment to the Boogie Cousins decision is a little surprising to me. Just wrapped up with Frank on @lockedonbucks. We tried to look at the decision from all angles. Join the conversation in the YouTube comment section! – 12:28 AM

Boogie’s LEBRON this year: +1.51. EPM: +0.1. Weird decision to cut him. – 11:58 PM

On waiving DeMarcus Cousins to open roster spot for trade deadline, Bucks GM Jon Horst tells ESPN: “We wouldn’t have been able to get through this difficult stretch of the season as successfully as we did without DeMarcus…He was so good for us and hopefully we helped him too.” – 11:02 PM

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
DeMarcus Cousins has had a weird career:
-Languishes in Sacramento for years
-Traded during the All-Star Game
-Gets hurt just as he’s balling out for New Orleans and about to hit free agency
-Hurt multiple more times
-Cut after putting up 15/10 for the champs.
Rough run. – 10:34 PM

Eric Nehm @eric_nehm
Bobby Portis just blocked a Pascal Siakam floater into DeMarcus Cousins’ waiting arms on the Bucks’ bench. And then he let Siakam know about it.
Raptors up, 114-107, with 37.8 left, but just 4.3 left on the shotclock for them. – 10:16 PM

Jim Owczarski @JimOwczarski
DeMarcus Cousins has 15 points and 10 rebounds for the #Bucks. It’s his second double-double of the season. – 9:45 PM

Michael Grange @michaelgrange
If Fred had won jump ball vs. Boogie, forget All-Star, he’s the real MVP. – 9:00 PM

Boogie looking like a King again. – 8:56 PM

The #Bucks are STILL shooting 60% from the floor with 4:16 to go in the first half.
Khris Middleton and DeMarcus Cousins have 11 points each to lead the team. Toronto (52%) has three players in double figures. – 8:55 PM
