DeMarcus Cousins could reportedly join Dwight Howard in Taiwan’s pro league.
The reports are based on a tip from a sports reporter at UDN, Lee Yi-Shen, and several anonymous T1 players.
It’s not known which teams are in the running for Cousins, but a TVBS report suggests that it will be a team based in southern Taiwan, which would be either the Tainan TSG Ghosthawks, or the Kaohsiung Aquas.
The Basketball Network has published a report quoting Cousins as saying “Hi Dwight, I’m coming!”
Cousins and the league are yet to comment on his potential move, but if his performances in Taiwan are anything like Howard’s, there could be fireworks in store.
Howard put up 38 points, 25 rebounds, nine assists and four blocks in his debut recently.
Cousins recently expressed interest in rejoining the Sacramento Kings, but with the Kings winning seven of their last eight games, it seems unlikely that they would tinker with their winning formula.
And with no other NBA teams seeming to be interested in Cousins, it would appear he has cast his gaze abroad.
