THE Los Angeles Lakers they are moving a lot in these hours, after it became possible to sign players with 10-day contracts from January 5th. While during the night there was talk of Tyler Dorsey (HERE), other names have now emerged: one is that of DeMarcus Cousins, who will do a workout with the yellow-purples next week, according to Bleacher Report’s Chris Haynes, with the exact date yet to be defined; the other, however, is the name of Sterling Brownformer Bucks, Houston and Dallas, already in the most advanced stage directly for the 10-day signing, according to Shams Charania’s report.
It should be noted, however, through Dave McMenamin and Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN that the Lakers have confirmed the contracts of Austin Reaves And Wenyen Gabriel.
Cousins had already ripped a contract during the past season starting from a 10-day, signing with the Denver Nuggets, and his figure will certainly be greatly appreciated by LeBron James and Anthony Davis, always very favorable to the inclusion of veterans of this caliber . The player had already signed a contract with the Lakers in 2019, never taking the field due to yet another injury in his career, only contributing to obtaining a disabled player exception.
Sterling Brown, on the other hand, is a 3&D who has already gotten used to playing around game creators like Antetokounmpo and Doncic, albeit without ever convincing too much. Ideally, he should be a good fit with respect to the qualities of LeBron James and the fact that with CEO we are looking for an increasingly perimeter dimension, but the 10-day does not guarantee a certainty anyway
With limited movement capacity like that of the Lakers in the market, moves like this should become quite common between now and the trade deadline.
