View Full Version : Cousins fires agents, possibly to try to get trade initiated

DeMarcus Cousins has made a mess for himself. He’s lashed out at opponents, coaches, announcers — pretty much everyone. He’s been fined, he’s been suspended. The Kings are tired of apologies. Cousins is sick of losing. And around and around we go.

No matter whose side you’re on, it’s safe to say that Cousins has painted himself into a corner with some immature actions. So who do you call to clean up the mess? The Winston Wolfe of NBA agents.

Cousins has looked outside for help, according to this from Jason Jones of the Sacramento Bee:

Jason Jones @mr_jasonjones

DeMarcus Cousins has also fired his agent John Greig to go with Dan Fegan.


Normally this wouldn’t be big news, but Dan Fegan has a bit of a reputation. When players want out, he’s the guy they bring in. Remember the “Dwightmare” saga with Dwight Howard in Orlando? Fegan engineered the trade, and made sure Howard landed in one of his preferred spots.

Maybe more relevant to Cousins’ situation with the Kings is Fegan’s relationship with Sacramento Kings GM Geoff Petrie. Here’s Tom Ziller of Sactown Royalty, recalling how former Kings guard Kevin Martin left town as soon as Martin signed with Fegan:

cousins needs to play alongside VETS and a strict coach.....hes playing on a losing team in a sorry city with a sorry coach and young inexperienced teammates.....his best fits would be:

1) Boston (between doc, kg, and pierce.....hed keep his mouth shut)
2)Chicago ( between thibs, noah, and rose...hed keep his mouth shut)
3) Miami (trade him for bosh....bron and wade would make um shutup)


teams like the knicks, spurs, or nets dont have anybody who i "think" dmc would grow up for.....

Boston ( offer avery bradley, brandon bass, and some picks)
Chicago ( offer deng, bobcats pick, and our 1st round pick)
Miami ( offer bosh, straight up)

Yea I'm sure

But they'll probably want someone else.. Jimmer Fredette


So the trade would look like...

Okc gets- Cousins and Fredette

Kings gets- Perkins, Toronto's 1st rounder, our 1st rounder

Ino it probably wouldn't happen but it makes sense for both sides

Portland sends: #11 pick Meyers Leonard and 1st to Sac and Hickson and 2nd to Charlotte

Portland receives: DeMarcus Cousins

Charlotte sends: Gerald Henderson to Sac

Charlotte receives: JJ Hickson and 2nd rd

Sac sends: Cousins to Portland

Sac receives: Gerald Henderson/M Leonard/1st rd pick

Sac could then deal T Evans for whatever they wanted or play him and Henderson, promising big in 7'2" Leonard and a pick.

Portland would have Lilliard/W Matthews/Batum/Aldridge/Cousins starting 5 and a shyt bench but still a good amount of capspace.

Hickson is NC state product and is playing better than any play in this trade and would be a solid big for Charlotte. solid deal for all teams

kozelkid
12-23-2012, 10:28 PM
Honestly, bulls would be a good situation for him, but I can't see it happening with our conservative fo. But it really would be the ultimate situation for him: either he listens to Thibs or sits, no nonsense about it and he wouldn't face the pressure of being the number one guy with Rose around. And if he ****s up, then he can leave with his rookie contract. Low risk and high reward; I'd bite but our fo won't.

12-23-2012, 10:31 PM

They're at least a year away from taking that risk IMO. I think you need an established veteran star, and while I love Kyrie, he needs more seasoning before you could hope for him keeping guys like Cousins in check.

Dallas is a team I could really see going for it; he'd be a great fit alongside the Diggler.

Yeah, Cousins has said in the past how much respect he has for Duncan, and Duncan praised Cousins ability. If they can pull off a trade for Cousins, it's really the perfect situation for him.

You sound dumb the raptors SUCK that's going to be a nice pick Perkins is a good center and okcs pick is just icing i would do it if i where the kings gm maybe u just lack understanding of how bad DMC actually is

Under no situation should a center have a FG % of .414 with less than a block a game
the points and rebounds look nice but they are very deceiving he is not close to ready to REALLY help a team yet and that maturity problem doesn't make him any more enticing.

First stop thinking the way to deal with Demarcus is by punking him its not going to work you have to get him around guys that have won and know how to deal with him. Second I don't think the are going to give up on the big three right now so he's not going to Miami as of right now. Third the best teams for Demarcus is spurs,Boston,lakers,and okc with lakers being last because they have to many nut jobs on their team as is.

not saying they couldnt straighten him out,but that our front office wouldnt let them have the chance to.the high ups care about things like "being a winner" "listening to coaches" ,ect. when they look at players

Yea just stop. So much BS in all your comments i read so far. And about the TD/ KM statement. The Mailman was great but all around, its a toss up between the 2. Both amazing player really. Dont make it seem like Karl Malone was wayyy better then TD. Id love to see TD play with one of the best PGs of all time like Malone did.

dee279
12-24-2012, 05:35 PM
And what is up with all this KG could keep Cousins in check BS. If anything, i could see a big clash between the 2. And wasnt KG voted like the dirtiest player in the game or something? Cousins already has a bad attitude. You really want KGs dirty play to rub off on him?
