In the recruitment of Cousins, Cono's recruitment rhetoric is very simple: Let's win everything together (Let's win it all) and finally Cousins agreed to join the Lakers for 1 year and 3.5 million. Cousins had a partner with Rondo and Davis. That year was the year when Cousins ruptured. The playoffs defeated the Blazers and ended the Western Conference Semifinals. Now they are reuniting with the Lakers.
Then he renewed Caruso with a total of 5.5 million for two years. He averaged 9.2 points, 2.7 rebounds and 3.1 assists in 25 games last season. In 2 years, 8.2 million signed McGee and 1 year you signed Dudley 2.6 million, and 2.6 million signed Williams in 1 year. The Lakers have Davis, McKee (Cousins) and other athletic talents.
