Boogie signs with the Lakers


Just as we thought the day was done, DeMarcus Cousins decided to commit to the Los Angeles Lakers on a one-year deal. His decision will reunite him with Anthony Davis and re-create one of the most interesting big man combos in the NBA.

Boogie was connected to the Knicks as their back-up plan and was most recently in consideration for Miami Heat. The Heat was considering him after trading Hasan Whiteside and a Butler - Cousins pairing would give them an instant talent injection and bring them back in the playoff conversation for the Eastern Conference.

In the end, Boogie opted for another one-year contract to prove his value and hit free agency next year, which is considered to be a very weak free agency summer. If he manages to stay healthy and continues his reaffirmation tour proving to teams he can control his temper and emotions, Boogie could sign a large multi-year contract next summer.

Unlike his time in New Orleans, he and Davis will now have LeBron on the court which will make them the most talented frontcourt in the NBA. The fit is again against the pace-and-space direction the NBA is going in, but Boogie and Davis proved it can work.

This implies Davis will start at power forward, and continue his fight against playing as the center on his team. This creates more complications for Fred Vogel and his staff, as it slides LeBron to defending the opposing teams small forward - those are defensive minutes you don't want to put on his body.

The Lakers responded to the Clippers in quick fashion, but I would still pick the Clippers over the Lakers as the West favorites. Can't wait for the schedule to be released!
