Report: Lakers waiving Cousins to sign Markieff Morris
The Los Angeles Lakers plan to waive DeMarcus Cousins, ESPN reports. The move comes as the Lakers reportedly reached a deal to sign Markieff Morris, who was recently bought out by the Detroit Pistons.
The Lakers needed a roster spot for Morris, and it appears Cousins is a casualty of the addition.

Cousins never played a game for the Lakers after signing last offseason. Coming off consecutive seasons that were cut short by an Achilles tear and a ruptured quad, Cousins suffered a torn ACL during offseason workouts after signing with Los Angeles.
