The used Memphis Grizzlies vice president of basketball operations speculated on the doable locations for Cousins, who will be more than 11 months removed from a torn ACL when the NBA season resumes July 30.
The Spurs will be without LaMarcus Aldridge and the Mavericks without Dwight Powell due to injure. The Celtics could presumably presumably utilize Cousins as a replacement for Daniel Theis or Enes Kanter in their rotation.
Cousins signed a one-year contract with the Lakers remaining July earlier than tearing his ACL while playing a pickup game a month later. He remained on the roster for many of the 2019-20 season earlier than the Lakers waived him in February to disencumber a roster space.
The Lakers will be drawn to a reunion with rosters expanding to a most of 17 players in Orlando. Cousins could presumably presumably fracture up replacing Dwight Howard, who cited considerations about distracting from social justice points as a reason he’s brooding about now now not playing.
An executive urged B/R’s Eric Pincus that the Lakers are the “fully personnel” that will presumably presumably signal Cousins, who has now now not given any indication whether he needs to near. The four-time All-Neatly-known person could presumably presumably utilize this extended time off to rehab his physique, which has undergone a torn Achilles, torn quad and torn ACL since January 2018.
