The Lakers are exploring some options right now.

DeMarcus Cousins has had a rough go of things over the past few years. After leaving the Sacramento Kings, he has bounced around the league quite a bit. From the New Orleans Pelicans to the Warriors to the Lakers to the Nuggets, Cousins has not been able to settle down.

Overall, it has been hard to watch as fans know what prime Cousins was capable of. As a result of his lack of NBA opportunities, it seemed like Boogie was subsequently planning a move to Taiwan. However, it seems like a new opportunity is keeping him in America.

DeMarcus Cousins x Lakers Reunion?

According to Chris Haynes of Bleacher Report, Cousins is getting a workout with the Lakers on Friday. Of course, Cousins was on the Lakers back in 2019-2020, however, an ACL injury kept him out of the lineup. It was a disappointing campaign that ultimately led to his recent string of inconsistency.

Now, however, Cousins has a real opportunity to get back on an NBA roster. In fact, Cousins is going to be competing against Meyers Leonard, who is always working out for the Lakers. Most Lakers fans are hoping for Cousins to get the spot as they are already familiar with him.

The Lakers could use a whole lot of help these days. However, it remains to be seen if Cousins or Leonard will get an opportunity. Either way, it is good to see the Lakers exploring all avenues ahead of the trade deadline.
