15.3 rebounds per game

  • We may as well put Tyrion in at center.
We can dream, can't we?
I like Marcus Smart

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
I think he'll still be moved. There are 3 years of bad blood there, and the Kings aren't (I believe) going to want to pay him the money he'll command with the risk that he'll buck again. I think all he's doing is driving up his price tag.

I'd absolutely love for him to be a Celtic but I just don't see it happening. If Danny can land him with our pieces then he wins Exec of the year

I would love him but wouldnt it be a move for the future and not win now? I dont think Cousins would put us over the top if we had to give up Lee, Bradley, Sully and our entire bench. You probably would have to do it though.

Only player I wouldn't trade for him is Rondo.

Maybe if he has another issue with Sac his value drops enough for us to pounce.  As of now we don't have the assets, sans Rondo.

It doesn't matter how well he plays.  Trading him is more related to how likely he is to have another incident, not how he does on the court.

Still, I think Sacramento should be looking for a replacement big who can start right away, a good young player, a high draft pick, and someone to take Salmons' contract off their hands in any trade of Cousins.

The Kings are a franchise in turmoil.  They are most likely going to move to some other location in Cali.  If you are the owners of that squad and are either (a) trying to build a new fan base, or (b) trying to sell the team...why would you trade the best player on your team?

Not only are those numbers absurd but the Kings are 4 and 2 in the last 6 games with him in the line up.

I think his new agent might have something to do. He is know for facilitating trades for his players. I would bet anything that he sat Cousins down and explained that his stock is at an all time low and he needs to pick it up. At the same time he prob told the kings "my guy wants out but he is going to play his ass of to get you a good return you just have to move him"

This would make for a very quick "indefinite suspension" and a suddenly super focused Cousins.


All this being said he is now out of reach for the Celts.

these numbers mean nothing in terms of being moved or not sorry

I think there's an argument to be made that this is probably the best time to trade him. The Kings rebuilding project is going to take years, what makes you think he'll stay past his rookie contract based on his experience with the team and where they'll be at?
