Houston Rockets sign Cousin

According to myfoxhouston.com, the  NBA’s Houston Rockets have signed Austin Toros’ Marcus Cousin to a three-year contract:

The Rockets agreed to a 3-year, non-guaranteed contract with former University of Houston center Marcus Cousin and will send him to their NBA D-league affiliate, the Rio Grande Valley Vipers.

Cousin has been knocking on the NBA’s door. During the NBA’s pre-season with the San Antonio Spurs, he showed he can play at the highest level and late in the Toros’ season, he was called up by the NBA’s Utah Jazz.

Congratulations Cousin. Well deserved.
