Lakers reportedly planning to start LeBron James at point guard

Lakers Anthony Davis Knicks

Yahoo Sports reports the Lakers want to move James to point guard next season with newly acquired free agent Danny Green as his backcourt running mate.

Now Cousins, 28, has been added to the mix after his agent Jeff Schwartz told ESPN that a one-year, $3.5million contract had been agreed. Cousins also missed a significant portion of the playoffs this spring with a torn quadriceps muscle. In two seasons with the Warriors, Cook averaged 7.7 points per game while shooting 41.8% from beyond the arc, winning an National Basketball Association title in 2018.

After the 2019 NBA Draft Lottery and some front office changes, the Los Angeles Lakers were finally able to trade for Anthony Davis from the New Orleans Pelicans.

The 34-year-old James lining up at point guard should in theory enable the Lakers to surround him with more shooting.

Alex Caruso, Quinn Cook and veteran Rajon Rondo, who started 29 games at the position last season, are the other recognized point guards on the roster.

The Los Angeles Lakers made a total of six official free agency signings on Saturday after losing Kawhi Leonard to cross-town rivals the Los Angeles Clippers. Cousins' deal is expected to be for one year.

ESPN's Adrian Wojnarowski was the first to break the news of Cousins swapping the Warriors for the Lakers.

However, the big man still averaged 16 points and eight rebounds per game alongside Kevin Durant and co. "The mid-level exception he got in Golden State previous year?"
