The Los Angeles Lakers have officially signed former Detroit Pistons forward Markieff Morris after he cleared waivers, the team announced on Feb. 23.

And in a related move, they waived center DeMarcus Cousins. These moves were first reported by Adrian Wojnarowski and Ramona Shelburne of ESPN.

After receiving interest from numerous teams at the 2019-20 NBA trade deadline, Morris was eventually bought out by the rebuilding Pistons.

In 44 games (16 starts) with the Pistons, Morris averaged 11.0 points (39.7 percent from the three-point line) and 3.9 rebounds in 22.5 minutes.
