The Lakers have been granted a $1.75 million Disabled Player Exception for DeMarcus Cousins (torn left ACL).
This now officially rules DeMarcus Cousins out for the season. The Lakers will now have the ability to go out and acquire a player that will in all likelihood occupy the end of their bench. Because they signed Dwight Howard, using this cap space on a center isn't necessarily as big a priority as it once was when Cousins initially went down.
