Assuming the season restarts, Cousins will likely be healthy to play in the post-season and will get a modified training camp to develop chemistry.

Does it make sense for the Lakers to resign him for the playoff run?

The Lakers can’t re-sign DMC until the season is over, unless the team had a deal with the NBA to let him still be apart of the team, we will have to wait until next season for him to play with us once we re-sign him in the off-season.

Don’t think you’re right. There is no rule stopping the Lakers from signing him.

He was waived prior to March playoff deadline and would be playoff eligible.

Lakers would just need to waive someone to sign him.

Is he healthy?

Is he in game shape?

Would he help the team more than anyone else on the current roster?

Didn't they effectively resign him when they cut him?

The questions are (1) can they and (2) should they.

1) I have no idea if they can. Everything is upended right now, and to continue they'll have to re-negotiate parts of the CBA with players, so I have no idea if that has any impact on resigning Cousins.

2) I have no idea if they should. He hasn't stepped onto an NBA court in more than a year so who knows if he is in any condition to play.

Imagine a Dwight/Cousins/McGee trio at Center.

Sure, that's great if he's the Demarcus Cousins from 2017. Would we even want the current Demarcus Cousins in the rotation? No idea.

And I am McGee I wouldn’t play until there is a vaccine. Very dangerous with his asthma.

Interesting to see what he and other NBA players with asthma do.

Wouldn't surprise me if he could sit out and still get paid.
