MILWAUKEE, Wis (WFRV) – The Milwaukee Bucks have announced that they’ve requested waivers on center DeMarcus Cousins. The team announced this on Thursday. The Bucks roster now stands at 17 players.

According to reports from The Athletic’s Shams Charania and ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski late Wednesday night, the Milwaukee Bucks plan to waive center DeMarcus Cousins. This comes ahead of the league-wide deadline to guarantee non-guaranteed contracts for the rest of the season on Friday.

Cousins has been competitive and productive through 17 games for the Bucks this season, averaging around nine points and 5.5 rebounds in those 17 games. But according to Bucks general manager Jon Horst, Milwaukee wants to keep the optionality of an open roster spot ahead of the February 10th trade deadline.
