Former Warriors DeMarcus Cousins, Quinn Cook Will Sign With Lakers

Tuesday, 09 Jul, 2019

The former Lakers president of basketball operations tweeted: "It's going to be awesome to watch NBA basketball in Los Angeles this (coming) season".

Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes reported that Cook and the Lakers have agreed on a 2-year, $6 Million deal. According to SportsLine's simulations they now have a 18.6 percent chance to win the conference and return to the Finals for the first time since they won the title in 2010.

The Lakers will hold onto Rondo for another two years, according to ESPN. After him and the Warriors failed to win a title, and after suffering even more injuries with them, National Basketball Association analysts believe nobody wants him now. However, they may have found a way to enter the season with the best "point guard" in the league.

Danny Green, Kentavious Caldwell-Pope, JaVale McGee and Quinn Cook are also signing with the Lakers after Leonard joins the Clippers. He signed with the Warriors in the summer of 2018 for drastically less money, $5.3 million for one year. This playbook worked the first time around, with the Lakers landing Davis via trade back in mid-June after all those months of messiness that came before.

However, the big man still averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game alongside Kevin Durant and co. He started 62 of the 75 games he played in.

The Golden State Warriors continue an offseason overhaul.

After missing out on Kawhi Leonard, who signed for cross-town rivals the Clippers, the Lakers are poised to bring in six free agents, three of whom played for them last season.
