If La can get Howard for next to nowt, Boston can wangle Cousins.
LA gave up an All star 7 footer, injury prone as heck, but better than anything in this deal we're trying to sell the kings.
Also, LA is a prime destination for players, Boston is not. That helps them exponentially when it comes to landing trades, which in the NBA, are driven by players.
Unless we suddenly develop a climate that is warm all year round, an amazing night life scene, and a ton of hot, easily accessible female "admirers" hanging around the players, young 20 something players will continue to force trades to LA over us.
But thats another discussion thats been had ad nasuem in other threads, the point is there is no way if the kings become interested in trading him, he comes here for that package.
