A Free Agency eventful and successful for Lakers

Author of a remarkable season on the side of the Thunder, the latter should establish himself as the holder in the lead.
Cousins leaves The Angels through the small door
To top it off, the Los Angeles Lakers secured the signing of Montrezl Harrell named best 6e man of the year.
