DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis are set to play together again. And it's a pairing that adds up in many ways.

Cousins agreed to a one-year deal withe Los Angeles Lakers Saturday, reuniting the duo that played on the New Orleans Pelicans together in 2017-18, as well as part of the prior season.

Up until Saturday’s deal, Cousins had been an afterthought in a hectic free agency period due to concerns over his health after only playing 30 regular-season games last season, as well as a lackluster postseason performance. But if there’s anyone for Cousins to play with to get back to his old self, it’s Davis.

The Lakers are pairing DeMarcus Cousins and Anthony Davis in the frontcourt this season, which could turn out to be beneficial for both players. Let's take

When the pair played together in New Orleans, Cousins had one of the best years of his career. He averaged a career-high 12.9 rebounds and 5.4 assists, as well as 25.2 points a game. He also had his highest effective field goal percentage that season at 53.0.

Davis had a stellar season in 2017-18 as well, scoring 28.1 points a game — the highest average of his career. He also recorded his highest three-point percentage at 34 percent.

The chemistry could benefit the Lakers immensely. New Orleans finished with a 48-34 record and made it to the Western Conference semifinals for the first time since 2007-08 that season. While Cousins had  a season-ending Achilles tear in January of 2018 and therefore wasn’t part of the postseason run, his play with Davis was crucial to setting up the team to get to the playoffs after missing the mark the past two seasons.

In first public comments since Lakers trade, Anthony Davis says 'titles' are 'only thing' on his mind It’s all about championships now for Anthony Davis. Davis, after a rocky 2018-19 season that featured a messy public trade request from the New Orleans Pelicans, got his wish: a trade to the Los Angeles Lakers. The trade won’t become official until Saturday, but Davis is already in Los Angeles getting used to life as LeBron James’ teammate. Davis made his first public comments since the trade to the Los Angeles Times over the weekend. He wouldn’t get into specifics about the move until the transaction is made official by the league, but he made it clear what his mindset is moving forward.

Rajon Rondo, who also signed with Los Angeles Saturday, was on that 2017-18 team as well — though his role was much smaller.

Davis and Cousins have proved to be a dangerous frontcourt together, bringing out the best in each other. And now LeBron James will be in the mix as well. It’s not the big three the Lakers initially hoped for with Kawhi Leonard, but nonetheless they’ve still got three All-Star talents on the roster.
