Cousins, the Lakers: will meet again with Anthony Davis

The pivot has signed for a season with the Angelina franchise, which adds five signings after the decision of Kawhi Leonard to play in the Clippers.


The Los Angeles Lakers have embarked on a rampant transfer career following Kawhi Leonard's decision to play the next four seasons in the Clippers. In just a few hours, the angelina franchise has made six additions (Rondo included), the last one of DeMarcus Cousins. The pivot signs for a season (Adrian Wojnarwoski) and will reissue at the Staples Center the pair that formed with Anthony Davis in New Orleans Pelicans.

La Ceja, has also been the main driver of this signing. According to Wojnarowski, multiple players from the Lakers with the pivot at the head convinced Cousins to join the Lakers, discarding other interested franchises like the Miami Heat.

The center comes to Los Angeles after an unsatisfactory season in Golden State Warriors. Last summer's signing of the Bahia team, Cousins signed for only one year and 5.3 million dollars, in the process of recovering from his Achilles tendon rupture, and hoping to win a ring and achieve, Then the maximum possible contract.

Ni one thing or the other. Boggie, who returned to the courts on January 18, played only 30 regular-phase games with the Warriors. In the playoffs he lost 14 games because of a tear in the left leg quadriceps in the second round of the first round against the Clippers. He returned to the Finals against the Toronto Raptors, but could not do anything to prevent defeat.

After this failed attempt, his future clouded. The Warriors renewed Kevon Looney and seized Willie Cauley-Stein (Sacramento Kings) , leaving him de facto out of his future plans. A scenario that became darker with the words of Wojnarowski: "There is no market for him" . "I thought I was going to find a position in a big market with salary space to collect 12, 15 or 18 million per year, that's not happening, if it gets something it will be similar to the mid-level exception that Golden State gave it last year. ", continued the American journalist. Finally, and before such a storm, Cousins will have a new opportunity with Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
