I am sure the celtics will call the kings to see what it would take to land cousins
When we get closer to jan 15 theres going to be alot of trade rumors around that time

If the Lakers can get Howard for nothing, why can't the Celts do the same to get Cousins?  ;D

I don't know if that theory works. The point is at the time of the trade the 76ers thought they were getting something. It was a risk yes, but still.

To all who say Cousins' minor incidents mean he's being shopped: Rondo's had plenty minor incidents.  Does that mean he's being shopped?

Remind me, when was the last time the Celtics suspended Rondo indefinitely for "unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental"?

Doubt they are willing to move him....despite the problems they are having with him, he is a very talented big, and not too many of those around.

If they were entertaining offers, we'd probably have to give up Rondo, as there would be numerous offers,  and a collection of medicre talent from us ala Green, Bass, etc wouldn't get it done IMO.   And I'm not sure we'd do that....

We know there were times when Rondo was actively shopped.

I say Danny would and should take the risk with Cousins if he can hang onto Rondo and Bradley.

I'm not saying Cousins and Rondo have the same issues, but I don't think Cousins is being shopped because of his actions.  I think he is being suspended for an unknown amount of time because he's acting like a baby.  No need to look further into it.  Sacramento isn't giving up on a guy with potential to be the best big in the game.

As someone pointed out, the Celtics did shop Rondo for the right deal. Except we can't offer a right deal for Cousins, so it's not going to happen, in all likelihood.

I agree with this.  I'm pretty sure Danny said something like, "Right now, we're keeping our options open." That was last year, around February and early March, when we weren't that great.  Rondo was on the block, but we weren't looking to dump him by any means.

There is no report that Sacramento is looking to trade Cousins; it's all speculation because he was suspended.  I don't really want Cousins here.  I don't believe the whole "better environment" argument.  It's a shame that a guy with so much talent could be so immature.

The odds of the latest incident inspiring the Kings to trade Cousins are likely slim, as he is considered the centerpiece of their prolonged rebuilding effort. But a person with knowledge of the Kings' plans said "he's not untouchable," in large part because the 8-18 team is struggling so mightily and all options appear to be under consideration.

I doubt a package of Green and Sullinger will be enough. But they may be looking to shed the contracts of Salmons and Outlaw, so I guess it's not impossible to entice them.
