The veteran NBA player announced on Twitter Saturday that he's joining the gaming group NRG:
Cousins has been rehabbing from a torn ACL he suffered ahead of the 2019-20 season after signing with the Los Angeles Lakers. He was waived in February.
Injuries have been a consistent problem for the center, who has played just 78 games in the last three seasons combined. It seems this time off has given him extra chances to work on a side project in video games.
With the NBA season also suspended due to coronavirus, several players have moved onto esports.
