I really hope this trade doesn't happen, I want nothing to do with Cousins.
I know there is an off-chance that being in a better environment will get him to improve, but really, I am ASTOUNDED at the number of people that really want him.
The problem is that his two biggest weaknesses make him a bad fit for our team: he is a pure jump shooter, and not even very good at that (his shooting percentages are pretty mediocre), he turns the ball over waaaaaay too much, and he fouls too much at defense (he is always going for steals and strips). This is NOT what our team needs right now.
That said, I know Cousins is young, and he is a good rebounder. If under the tutelage of KG and Doc he can learn to play more intelligently on both ends of the court, he can be an All-Star caliber player. But ... I just don't see it happening ... he has had such immense maturity problems both on and off the court, and his weaknesses are exactly the ones that will fit the worst with our already jump-shooting turnover-prone team, I don't even want to take the chance on him.
I want absolutely nothing to do with him, and I think the people who do want him will be unpleasantly surprised if he comes here when he does nothing to improve our team.
(I am just not a gambling man, so for me, it is hoping a lot for a player to radically change almost everything about the way they play basketball, especially one as infamously immature as Cousins. I know Blatche has done exactly that in Brooklyn, but those cases are so rare can we realistically expect it to happen again so soon?)
