just messin' around - IF IF IF Boston decides to blow it up, this would be a haul of talent

who says no?

Probably the Kings but it depends on how much they want to get out of the Cousins business

Nice deal but we would have to send Sullinger & Melo to SAC & Billups would be kept & substituted for something else due to he & Garnett's friendship. I'm sure Garnett no trade would make sure they keep Chauncey.

I think the Kings could get more for Tyreke and Cousins than this trade gives them. Bledsoe is maybe a smart swap for Tyreke Evans... ...but they could do better for Cousins - as much as I personally disliked Cousins.

Also, I'm not sure how it helps us. The goal of obtaining Cousins would be to pair him with KG. If he is really someone worth centering an offense around - you would know if you saw him with Garnett.

Does putting him with Bass and Jeff Green vastly improve the situation he's in?

Funny.  I was working on a similar trade:

Boston trades: Kevin Garnett, Avery Bradley
Boston receives:  Eric Bledsoe, DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans

Sacramento trades:  DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans
Sacramento receives:  DeAndre Jordan, Avery Bradley

LA Clippers trade:  Eric Bledsoe, DeAndre Jordan
LA Clippers receive: Kevin Garnett

To me, Sacramento's return still seems a little light; perhaps we could give them some further cap relief by swapping around contracts. 


D. Cousins / F. Ezeli / P. Antic
D. West / R. Anderson / C. Copeland
L. Deng / V. Carter / D. Rudez
A. Iguodala / M. Ginobili / B. Gordon
K. Irving / S. Livingston / S. Blake

Hmmm, no way Sacramento agrees to this.

They give up way too much and don't get nearly enough back.

You'be probably just better off dealing Pierce and KG to the Clips for Bledsoe, Jordan, Odom and Billups.
