    Lakers center DeMarcus Cousins has suffered a possible knee injury and will undergo further testing today in Los Angeles, league sources tell ESPN. Cousins was working out in Las Vegas on Monday when he had to leave the court, sources said. He signed a one-year deal in July.

    Damn....that probably ends his career. Doubt he will ever be close to the same.

    at least it wasn't a multi year deal
    would've been nice to get a contribution but...guess it felt different reading the thread from the bottom up
    thought it was Davis
    perspective

    Could also mean he'll end his career with LAL, playing for scraps, MLE @ the most. May be a solid wild card off the bench in a year or two. The long look, anyway.


    Thinking Kenneth Faried would be a solid pick up/replacement in the rotation. D'antoni let him shoot 3's and he actually did OK in a small sample. Another hustle guy, switchable defender, small ball option.

    Sucks tremendously. Now Javale is in line to start and play more minutes and that's no bueno

    Is it a confirmed ACL tear? I had heard he was just being evaluated at this time.

    Dwight, no chance
    Noah, ditto, see; LeBron/Noah fued
    Nene, old AF
    Faried, makes some sense, still under 30 somehow, see a lot of LAL fans that want him signed
    Mo Speights, rather have Faried

    Isn’t there a lost player exception where a team can petition the NBA league office for salary cap exemptions if you know an injured player will not play the full season?

    If so, I guess if the Lakers pull that option, Boogie is essentially no longer a Laker in that he only has a one year contract.

    And Kuzma goes to the bench.
    And Chris Paul is suddenly traded to the Lakers.

    Yeah, it's just not worth much because he was signed on the cheap. Only $1.75M, but I'm told they could use the DPE in a trade as well. Somebody like Nerlens Noel would be the target. In comp to Javale, Noel has a greater impact defensively, so hopefully Rich Paul/Pelinka are working on this..or just sign Faried.
