The Lakers losing DeMarcus Cousins to an ACL injury is some really sad news, not just for the Lakers but for Cousins. Thats three major injuries in two and half years. I’m Sami Jarjour (Twitter – YouTube – Instagram & Facebook) and I’m here to tell you why, to me, the Lakers need to just sign Carmelo Anthony and get some help off the bench.

The Lakers need to quit the BS and just sign Carmelo Anthony. With the Boogie injury, I think they need an extra playmaker. Make it happen @Lakers @KingJames @PodThat @SONTHighlights pic.twitter.com/OLpn4kiy99

Source (Bleacher Report) – While the upcoming FIBA World Cup will swiftly become the largest news around the basketball community, NBA teams are always trying to bulk up their benches.
And one likely future Hall of Famer is still looking for work.
Ten-time All-Star and veteran bucket-getter Carmelo Anthony hasn’t given up on a return to the NBA. Given how quickly the latest update went from notable to forgettable pretty quick, it’s understandable if you might have missed it.
Elsewhere, the once-leading candidate for the Los Angeles Lakers coaching job is reportedly headed to Hollywood—just not to the franchise many expected.
According to Ian Begley and Anthony Puccio of SNY, the 35-year-old recently participated in informal team workouts and scrimmages with Brooklyn Nets players in Los Angeles.
Begley and Puccio added the respective interest levels between Carmelo and the Nets are unknown, noting the team already has the maximum of 15 players on guaranteed contracts. Still, that didn’t stop the rumor mill from spinning.
Brian Lewis of the New York Post slowed the excitement, citing a friend of Anthony’s who said there is “nothing to it.”
