DeMarcus Cousins has agreed to sign a one-year deal with the Los Angeles Lakers while Rajon Rondo is signing a two-year deal, according to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne.

Cousins ($3.5M) and Rondo ($2.6M) are going to LA on minimum deals, with Rondo having a player option for the second year.

After recovering from a torn left Achilles, Cousins played 30 regular season games for the Golden State Warriors and averaged 16.3 points along with 8.2 rebounds. The 28-year-old center also suffered a torn left quadriceps in the first round of the playoffs which kept him sidelined until the Finals.

Rondo also had his share of troubles with injuries (hand) this past season missing out 36 games for the Lakers. He averaged 9.2 points, eight assists and 5.3 rebounds over the 46 games he did play.
