Will “Tyrant” Cousins return to the Lakers?…workout scheduled [NBA]’
“Tyrant” DeMarcus Cousins (32) may be able to return to the NBA stage in the LA Lakers (hereinafter referred to as the Lakers) uniform.
Chris Haynes, a reporter for the media Blitzer Report, reported on the morning of the 13th (Korea Standard Time) that Cousins and the Lakers are preparing for a workout on the 14th.
The Lakers recently signed a 10-day contract with Sterling Brown, but can publicly seek a job after it expires on the 17th. Cousins’ lack of height on the front court in the Lakers, his brilliant career and the fact that he is training publicly increase the likelihood of a reunion.
Cousins, an 11-year veteran, is constantly trying to return to the NBA after playing for the Milwaukee Bucks and the Denver Nuggets last season. Cousins scored 8.9 points and 5.5 rebounds, playing an average of 13.9 minutes with the backup of Nikola Jokic, the main character of the back-to-back MVP.
In particular, Cousins played an average of 11.4 minutes in five playoff games last season with a 10.6 points, 3.4 rebounds, 1.2 assists, and a success rate of 65.5% (5.8 attempts), a three-point success rate of 66.7% (0.8 successes), and a free throw rate of 73.3% (three attempts).
Cousins earlier signed a one-year contract with the Lakers in 2019 to reunite with once-team-mate Anthony Davis and add a trophy. However, before the training camp, he suffered an accident in which his ACL (front cruciate ligament) was torn during a pickup game. Eventually, he gave up the season and was not with the Lakers when they won the 2020 bubble.
Cousins, who once made his name as a “tyrant” as one of the league’s best big men, was selected as an All-Star for four consecutive years between 2015 and 18. Cousins formed a strong twin tower with Davis after moving to the New Orleans Pelicans to lead the team to a high ranking, but his dream collapsed as the ACL was torn.
Cousins then signed a contract with Golden State and advanced to the final, but failed to win the trophy due to his injury as well as Kevin Durant’s injury. 파워볼실시간
