Player Dallas Mavericks could sign: 1. DeMarcus Cousins

Cousins is the biggest name free agent on the market. The four-time All-Star signed with the Lakers this season but was released before playing a game. Boogie tore his ACL in August. He rehabbed with Los Angeles until they waived him in February to sign Markieff Morris.

Cousins is recovering from two significant injuries nearly back-to-back. He played just 30 games last season as he rehabbed a torn Achilles. Now coming back from a torn ACL, who knows what level Cousins will be playing at next month.

The 29-year-old is a proven scorer and rebounder, though. He averages 21.2 points, 10.9 rebounds, 3.2 assists, 1.4 steals, and 1.2 blocks in 32.0 minutes per game for his career. Even Cousins at 80 percent could make a massive impact in the playoffs.

If healthy, plenty of teams will be vying for his services. Could the Mavericks win the sweepstakes? It is possible. The Mavs could use him as a change of pace off the bench. Cousins could score and grab rebounds on the second unit.

Expect DeMarcus Cousins to sign and be playing in Orlando. Stay tuned to see for which team.
