The Bucks fill their open roster spot with DeMarcus Cousins who will be on a 1 year non-guaranteed contract.

Well, that eliminates them as a contender.

He gave us fits in the playoffs
No, he absolutely did not give fits.

When Cousins was on the court we absolutely wrecked the Clips in that series. He is a complete disaster on defense and wildly overrated on offense. He scored his points, sure, but our offense switched to "make Cousins defend" whenever he was on the court and it seemed like we scored on virtually every single play that we attacked him.

27% shooting, 7 rebounds, and absolute dog crap defending in 42 total minutes in that series. That is Cousins.

If they had played him starters minutes we'd have swept them, winning by about 25 per game.

PLEASE let us bump into that washed up bum again in the playoffs.

We pretty much played him off the court

Cousins had three games where he scored in double figues against Phoenix in the playoffs.

Right.that Clippers series was hell.

That was a tough series for sure. The Bucks will use Cousins as depth and insurance with Brook Lopez hurting.

Without a guaranteed contract there is not much to lose. If he hurts chemistry they can let him go.

As I recall, he hurt the Suns in one game and he hurt the Clippers in 4 others. His second best game was a DNP that LAC won.

As a deep bench guy, assuming he doesn't hurt your chemistry, he's a decent signing. But he's a very mediocre signing if he's your 9th or 10th man. All told, I'd rather have an occasionally healthy Frank.

I'd take Kaminsky as well.

I'm trying to view the addition of Cousins as the Bucks might view him on a non-guaranteed contract.
