Busy Lakers sign Cousins & bring back Rondo

Lakers Anthony Davis Knicks

According to ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski, there is now "not a market" for the free-agent center.

He suffered an achilles injury and denied a massive contract to resign with the Pelicans to try to get an NBA Finals ring with the Golden State Warriors. Cousins also missed a significant portion of the playoffs this spring with a torn quadriceps muscle.

"Agent Jeff Schwartz of Excel Sports told ESPN that Cousins' deal is worth $2.3 million", ESPN reported. Rondo, the Lakers starting point guard last season, is the only one of that group who warrants consideration of starting ahead of James at the position.

Danny Green will start at shooting guard while Anthony Davis, Kyle Kuzma and DeMarcus Cousins will presumably be the Lakers' three frontcourt players.

The Lakers had hoped the third would be Kawhi Leonard, but he chose to play with the Los Angeles Clippers instead.

"This is a historic moment for the Lakers franchise, and we couldn't be more proud to have him".

Rondo, meanwhile, reportedly returns to the Lakers for just $2.6m. Cousins' deal is expected to be for one year.

James and Davis are second and third, respectively, in National Basketball Association history for player efficiency rating.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to break the news of Cousins swapping the Warriors for the Lakers. He averaged 9.2 points and 3.1 assists in over 20 minutes a game for the Lakers past year.

The Golden State Warriors continue an offseason overhaul.
