Cousins battled injuries last season and was gearing up to return to All-Star form with the Lakers but a torn ACL now sidelines Boogie yet again.

For Noah, he is perhaps the best fit for Los Angeles.

The Lakers are acquiring Howard as a low-risk move to help stabilize an urgent situation. "Howard had several meetings with Lakers officials, and they'll give him a chance to show he's made changes in how he conducts himself", Woj revealed on Friday. The Lakers aren't the only team that has had trouble integrating Howard into their mix. The team wants the ability to cut him without cost to keep as leverage.

This isn't Howard's first rodeo with the Lakers, joining the team via trade with high hopes in the offseason leading up to the 2012-13 season. Howard, however, struggled with injuries during the 2018-19 season, only appearing in nine games in November before missing the rest of the season after spinal surgery and a hamstring issue.

The Grizzlies are negotiating a buyout with the big man, who plans on signing with Los Angeles afterward, according to a report from The Athletic, which cites unidentified league sources.

Perhaps he'll find more success this time.
