She just mentioned this on ESPNNEWS.

As the other two big free agents have their own thread, I'll just leave this one here for now.

I’ll take him. He was great before gotten hurt, and he was relatively on good behavior when paired with an all star. Only question is whether he’s healthy.

It's flattering that all of these players want to play for the Lakers.

he wants to go anywhere he think is desperate enough to pay him....he can see the writing on the wall....New Orleans is going to low ball him, and there literally may be no market for him, especially if he cannot prove that his recovery is going excellent.

Enough time to see how he recovers from his Achilles injury.

He should be back to being able to get to training within the month.

Should be cleared for basketball activities by camp, and could play pre-season at earliest, opening night to the first two weeks of the season at latest.

Kobe's timeline fell along the norm in terms of recovery to basketball activities to practice to the court.

So if we go by Kobe's timeline which was the norm for that kind of injury, Cousins could be back opening night and feasibly pre-season, though I don't know if the team he's with would do that or be cautious.

Cousins doesn’t excite me as a 3rd wheel and I much rather get someone who is durable and can contribute.


Posted the same thing in the FA thread...
I dont know if that's news.
Boogie has wanted to be on the Lakers for a while.

Klay's dad mentioned a few times on espn 710 that Boogie told him personally that he'd like to join the Lakers. The question is: Do the Lakers want Boogie?

Seems to be making progress. At least he's getting up 3 pointers.

They say he should be good to go for the regular season, but the might be cautious who know might sit out a couple of months into the regular season

Someone answered the first time you asked it. Look back a few posts and you'll see it.
