I can't stop looking at my computer screen, hoping for updates on this thing...'hope' being the operative word since this is apparently a false rumor. This would be great, though!

Sacramento isn't dumb enough to do that.  If they waited, they could probably get better value for Cousins.

Well this thread's title got my hopes up for nothing.



My rule of thumb: unless I hear it from Marc Spears, Woj, Greg Payne, or Forsberg, I ain't posting it.

This is how Courtney Lee was broken.

Fair point. I remember that.

Still, that was a realistic trade... No way we're getting Boogie AND Tyreke without giving up Rondo.

Agreed, but I don't think Tyreke would be packaged in there. I think he was just a "salary" that needed to be added. More like a Salmons or Thompson is included since Fab and Sully/Bass would be going with Lee/Bradley.

Therein lies the true question, and perhaps one worthy of its own thread...

If you have to fill salary, would you rather dump:

Lee and Sully
or
Bass and Bradley

I honestly can't pick. I love Sully, but I love Bradley more; I dislike Lee, but I dislike Bass more.

That's why I'm not Danny.

Danny should just trade  bass and lee and picks  jan. 15 they make almost 11 mil combined. Keep sully and bradley!  Only trade sully and bradley for josh smith or Kevin love, not a knucklehead like cousins.

Kind of.. Yes, it was on Twitter but it was Lee's cousin congratulating him on signing with the Celtics and not some dude trying to be an insider.

I'd actually be pretty happy with Lee and Sullinger for Cousins and Honeycutt.

When I saw Bass' name along with the words "close" I knew it was a lie b/c BASS CAN'T BE TRADED UNTIL THE 15TH!!! That's 21 days away...

If that's close or a scoop then a deal with Green, Sully, Bass, AB for LeBroid James is close to being done- per my source on twitter! Wait, I'll even make up a name umm... I got this inside scoop from a trustworthy journalist on Twitter, my friend "iMakeUpRumorsForSport"
It takes me 3hrs to get to Miami and 1hr to get to Orlando... but I *SPIT* on their NBA teams! "Bless God and bless the (Celts)"-Lady GaGa (she said gays but she really meant Celts)

Kid is risk, but if he can be tamed ,  he could be a large part of the future.  Up side , just look at his skill level , and he is the same age as Chris Joseph and Fab I think and only a couple years older than Sully.

I can only think DA is burning the mid night oil to pull this off.   I'm sure DA would rather see if he can get a deal done for Cousins first cheap... rather than retool and trade half the team away to get JSmith .

If Cousins deal is not possible , I'm sure DA will work on Varejao at wide open throttle.

Any deal that brings in a BIG of that calibre while retainig PP, Rondo, AB is a super win IMO.

I'm not holding my breath.

If Bradley is not included than i'm all for it.

No way Evans is included, unless also for bradley in the deal

The kings could do this trade, bc they have given up on cousins. How many altercations has this kid been through in 1 and half year in the nba?? He whines and complains non stop, to the refs, teammates, coach etc.

They may feel they can't get a deal much better and also they will be getting mature players that will change the environment of their team. Sac hasn't done anything in a very very long time

For the celts, you get a possible franchise C/PF or basketcase for 1 year and a half. Ainge probably feels this is the only way for the celts to keep competitive while keeping pierce and kg. Its a decent risk knowing that Cousins has to bring out his best, bc if he can't at a huge market like Bos, no team will be interested in retaining him after.


Surprising players happen all the time -- that's why they're called surprises.

Quick question. Why is Cousins a career 44% shooter?

He seems like a monster on the low block.. What am I missing?
