According to Austin Toros’ Squeaky Johnson Twitter message, Toros center Marcus Cousin has received a call-up from the Utah Jazz of the NBA.

The 2011 D-League All-Star, Cousin started all 38 games this season averaging 29.9 minutes of action. He leads the team with 14.7 points 8.6 rebounds per game. He also becomes the 14th D-League call-up and the first for the Toros this season.

With Cousin heading to the NBA, this will leave a huge hole for the Toros in the paint. Not to mention the Toros are already dealing with numerous injuries and have seen players get traded frequently. Furthermore,¬†it doesn’t help the Toros’ chase for the eighth spot in the D-League playoff race.

More than likely, this will be a NBA 10-day contract; however, this is great news for Cousin who deserves this opportunity in the NBA.
