Caldwell-Pope would probably be the most likely option to trade away. They've got plenty of depth at the SG spot with Danny Green, Avery Bradley and Troy Daniels as their other options.

If they went the vet minimum option, I can't imagine they'd find someone that is a better option than Cacok at this stage in the offseason. The best big men available at the moment are Nene, Kenneth Faried, Greg Monroe, Amir Johnson, Zaza Pachulia, Joakim Noah and Dwight Howard. There's also a possibility they bring in a non-big like Andre Iguodala or Carmelo Anthony.

They may just simply opt to stand pat with what they have. Losing Cousins doesn't really diminish their chances at winning a title all that much. A healthy LeBron and Anthony Davis are still 2 of the top 5 players on the planet. They're still probably the 1a/1b best bet this year.

The Lakers, under the NBA rules, will probably be able to recover $1.65M of Cousin's contract.

If doctors say he will not be able to play before June of next year, the Lakers can apply for a Disabled Player Exception. They can recover up to half his salary. Which would be $1.65-$1.75M.

I'm not buying it, as we still have to see how they can play together. It will be interesting to see what happens with the Clippers and the Rockets as well.
