Boogie tore his left quad in the first round of the 2019 playoffs with the Warriors, but was able to play in the NBA Finals against the Toronto Raptors, where the Dubs lost in six games.

The Los Angeles Lakers have waived DeMarcus Cousins, Yahoo Sports' Chris Haynes confirmed. Cousins was limited in the 2018-19 season due to injuries, but the Lakers hoped that he could rediscover his All-NBA form alongside former Pelicans teammate Anthony Davis in LA. In order to secure a buyout, Morris relinquished the rights to the full amount he was owed, sources told ESPN's Bobby Marks.

The news is a continuation of a hard stretch for Cousins, starting back in January 2018, when a torn achilles would see him miss the final 34 games of the 2017-18 regular season with New Orleans.

The 6-foot-8 Markieff was having a decent season in Detroit, averaging 11 points per game on 45 percent shooting from the field.

Holding career averages of 21.2 points and 10.9 rebounds, Cousins has been a dominant figure on the floor when healthy over the course of his career.

Marcus Morris recently landed in Los Angeles with the Clippers after he was dealt by the Knicks before the deadline.

"That's my brother man. Man, if he goes to L.A., then I'm gonna be in Staples Center all the time", Marcus said.
