Sources: Cavs and Pelicans discussing deal that would send Iman Shumpert and Brooklyn pick to New Orleans and DeMarcus Cousins to Cleveland.

Thoughts on this?

Why wouldn't they have just dealt Kyrie for Cousins?

Seems like a better deal for the pelicans that want to win now....

I don't think Kyrie was ever going to resign in NOLA, even with his good friend AD there..

Oh, that would be precious, watching DeMarcus and LeBron clash.   Lebron deserves that I hope  it happens.

So, can we have Davis?

LA pick, Al, Tatum, Memphis pick, our pick, Danny, Noam Chomsky, 4 Duck boats, John Farrell, Brady.

Cavs and Pels are confusing franchises. They trade Kyrie and want young players/picks in return, awaiting life after Lebron James. They'll then turn around and trade the pick for a 1 year rental in Cousins so that Lebron might stay?

The Pels just traded for Cousins last February by giving up a young prospect in Buddy Hield. They're already prepared to trade Cousins for the 2018 Nets pick and get a young prospect again? Granted Hield was 23, but he looked real good in his 25 games in Sactown.

If this deal goes through it just may open the door for a Al Horford, Jayson Tatum and the LAL pick, if it qualifies for this year, being dealt for the Brow, if he asks to be traded after the season.
Al will have 3 years left but he's still got some game left for sure. The Brooklyn pick, Tatum and LAL pick will be a good get for NOLA to start another re-build. (edit: I understand we'd likely have to add a T. Rozier/M. Smart or/and one of the up and coming youngsters.....or a 2nd rounder we don't have until 2023 :)
The timing couldn't be perfect if something like this happens.
We'd be the Kings of the North with a shot at the NBA throne.

Good.

I would say this would make it one step closer to the AD dream.

Would say this is just a rumor.

I don't think this opens up the gates for an Anthony Davis trade. The value of Nets pick is still extremely high, although, I think the pick will eventually end up around 4th-7th spot. They'll trade to panic trade for an disgruntled pseudo Allstar lol.

Because IT+Crowder+Zizic+Cousins is better than Shumpert+Cousins
I'm bitter.

This doesn't make any sense and doesn't really seem possible. They didn't give holiday 30 million a year to immediately be on a rebuild. Cousins makes 7 million more than shumpert so deal doesn't seem to work with out more pieces. Think just a made up rumor we fell for.

its probably their response to Lebron throwing a fit after the Kyrie trade. The front office must be scrambling to get him a star player with the Nets pick before he demands to leave this season.
