I don't know why people would include Evans in any Boston deal. Boston barely scratches the surface of having enough to get Cousins in his deflated value state.
As much as I love Avery, I think I would accept this deal.
Why would the Celtics trade a superior top 15-20 player for a headcase who's playing below average ball this year? Melo, Deron, Paul, did not net 1 all-star player. Don't see why you all of a sudden think Cousins will who isn't near the caliber of Melo/D-Will/Paul at the time of the trade.
Courtney Lee, a super dissapointing Sullinger, a D League Center, and the center piece, a defensive tweener guard coming off a huge injury, to go with our other 3 small guards.
The only player SLIGHTLY enticing is Green, and who knows what this guy will be now after his medical issues and he isnt even coming our way cheap. Maybe the 1st they own isa start as well, but **** we dont want 3 possibly 4 bench players and a 1st for what is the only shot we have at a HUGE talent player.

The C's aren't trading Rondo they let Ray Allen walk before they gave up on Rondo.
Avery Bradley and Jeff Green, losing them will essentially hurt your team. Outlaw isn't anything special anymore and Salmons is not Bradley on D. Jeff Green is somebody BOS should want to keep. If all sides are fine w/ this deal, I can see it happening.

Celtics gotta make this happen. Would be huge
and personally, i dont think it would take thaaat much to get cousins. the way people are talking about how awesome he is, he's not michael jordan or larry bird. there's a reason these rumors arew out there. over the past 3 years, we've witnessed nba mega stars (deron/carmelo/dwight/etc) get traded for peanuts. what on earth gives anyone the impression that a talented but obviously troubled malcontent on a scrub team will fetch more than bonafide superstars?
i honestly dont think a trade happens but i dont think cousins will cost as much as people are saying on here.
While Bradley and Green are solid enough role players with potential to improve and Sullinger/Melo should be serviceable bigs, none of those guys will be elite players in the game. Cousins, under the guidance of Doc/KG/Pierce/Jet, would have a great opportunity to become an all-star and be a 20-13 C. I don't want to get rid of him, but the Kings are far too inept of an organization to properly develop him.
I doubt anything happens either, but a deal like this would make a ton of sense for both squads if the Kings have no choice but to trade him. Celtics get to move forward with Rondo/Cousins and have a chance to win another title in 2-3 years, while the Kings get some returns to work with
