Finally this move happened. DeMarcus Cousins is going to the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year contract for 3.5 million dollars. This is great value for a guy who can give you 20 points and 12 rebounds when he is healthy.
I thought this move should of have happened last year ,but better late than never. This was a great move for the Lakers. I like this move because the Lakers are pairing him with Anthony Davis and LeBron James.
When Cousins was in New Orleans with Anthony Davis they showed they can play together the only thing holding them back was a ball handler.
Now these two big men are going to playing with the best ball handler in the league LeBron James. James will no problem finding Cousins and Davis on the floor with his basketball IQ.
Cousins now has been given a golden opportunity to succeed. With this supporting cast around him, Cousins should have a really big year if he is healthy.
We all know Cousins is a great player but he has struggled to stay healthy. I do believe this year Cousins will take it slow. So, when he comes back he will show the world it was mistake they all made by letting sign with the Lakers.
