The Denver Nuggets plan on signing veteran center DeMarcus Cousins to a rest-of-season contract in the coming days after his second 10-day expired, per The Athletic's Shams Charania.

Cousins joined the Nuggets on Jan. 21 after being waived by the Milwaukee Bucks. In five games for Denver so far, he has averaged 6.0 points, 7.0 rebounds and 1.0 assists in 13.2 minutes per game off the bench.

The Nuggets did not make a deal ahead of Thursday's trade deadline to fill their one remaining roster spot, so they were able to bring Cousins back on board.

The four-time All-Star holds career averages of 20.0 points, 10.4 rebounds, 3.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 1.2 blocks.

The Nuggets, who are 30-24 and in sixth place in the Western Conference, visit the Boston Celtics on Friday.
