ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski reports that free agent DeMarcus Cousins has signed a one-year deal with the Lakers worth $2.3 million USD. Cousins will be joining LeBron James and reuniting with former Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis, along with Rajon Rondo who also re-signed with the Lakers in a two-year deal.

Cousins spent the previous NBA season with the Golden State Warriors, who also signed him on a one-year contract while recovering from a torn achilles. He then suffered a torn quad in the first round of the 2018 season, but eventually returned in the Finals against Toronto, playing a total of just 30 games. ESPN also mentions that the Miami Heat were initially interested in signing Cousins before Davis and several Lakers members convinced him otherwise. The Lakers failed to secure top free agent and two-time Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard, who is now planning to make his way to the Clippers according to sources.
