Tough call for the Kings. Cousins new agent will be pushing hard for a trade. They, along with the rest of the NBA, think the Kings ownership/management is dysfunctional and they want him out of there. The problem for the Kings is that Cousins is their best player, but given his frequent issues with coaches/teammates, teams aren't willing to give equal value back in return. In addition, I'm hearing that there's a split between the GM and ownership on what they want in return. Do they get back established players and try to win now or do they want more young prospects/draft picks? In other words, it's a giant mess ..

Fegan was behind the Dwightmare. He knows how to manipulate teams with rumors through the media, etc.

Fegan also has an adversarial relationship with Kings executive Geoff Petrie. So this is all looking great for Kings fans. And by great I mean terrible.

The Kings are facing a devastating situation developing. They're reaching the point where they can't justify keeping Cousins with his attitude. But they have no leverage now and won't be able to get a package of value back in return. And this isn't just a good player, it's a potential All-Star. They can't keep him, they can't trade him and get good return. They can only lose.

I do think the Celtics are one of the teams that would be willing to pull the trigger on a Cousins deal. Danny Ainge has never been afraid of players like Cousins. They do have assets too: Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo, Avery Bradley are all players the Kings would have interest in. However, if the Kings do that deal, they take another step backward. Not sure if there's room anymore for the Kings to keep going backward. Pistons, Mavs and Heat are other teams with a lot of interest.

I think a package of AB, Melo, Sully, and future picks AND taking back a bad contract like Salmons could make sense for the Kings. I bet Bradley has more value around the NBA then Tyreke does.

HOLY COW this thing might actually happen hahaha

Both Tyreke and Cousins is great value.

Cousins makes $3,880,800.  That is a relatively cheap contract but actually makes it hard to match up salaries while giving them back something they are actually going to want.  So why don't we shoot the moon and try to get T. Evans too (about $5.2), accepting that we would need to take something else back that they want to get rid of (Outlaw at $3M).  So would you do:

Green + Bradley  (about $10M total)

for

Cousins + Evans + Outlaw (about $11M total)

What more would you be willing to throw in to make it work if we needed to sweeten?

I want no part of Salmons so if they want to dump him (which they probably do) I walk.

Lee, Green, AB, Sully, Melo and picks w/ cash

for

Salmons, Evans, and Cousins

Then consider signing Delonte West on a vet. min. deal.

Just to throw more gasoline on the fire, Cousin's new agent Dan Fegan, is also the agent of Courtney Lee, Jason Terry, and Leandro Barbosa.

...and yes, I am baiting here.

For me, that is too much and I don't want Salmons.  You would be trading 3 current rotation players, a 4th that will be, and a prospect that just had 14 blocks in the D league.  Too much turnover for me.  I walk away from that deal.

The Kings are getting killed by Portland. They're a mess and look awful. All they do is get beat on Defense and blame one another when it happens. A lot of finger pointing out there.

I wonder who is there longer, Cousins, Petrie, or Smart?  Maybe they could all be sent out together.

As long as Cousins is trekking up to Boston I don't care.

Kings owners suck,GM has put no mature players on the squad the coaching is suspect at best, too many young players , no locker room leaders,  the whole franchise is a lost ball in high weeds.

It is a disfuctional situation for young hard-headed players to mature in.

Hope he can find the right place.

The thing is, they have the same ownership and GM as they had when they were perennial contenders. 

While there may be some extenuating circumstances (such as the Maloofs business tanking), this team should still be a reminder to anyone who wants the C's to "get bad to get good".  A lot of times, this is what happens when you play the lottery.  It starts a cycle that is hard to stop.

Truth. Completely derailed Evans career, on the way to ruining cousins. The kings have done less with more than any other franchise.
