NBA Rumors: Lakers Apply For $1.75 Million Disabled Player Exception For DeMarcus Cousins Injury
Just pure idiocy, just waive him, the disabled player exception is less than the veteran minimum. The chances of filling that roster spot with a better player will increase if you waive him rather than keep him and apply for this "exception".
Cousins' season is officially over whether you keep him or not, the only benefit to keeping him is the hope that he recovers for next season. Realistically speaking, this guy's prospective future NBA career looks worse than Carmelo Anthony's.
