The Boston Celtics trade Jason Terry ($5 million, 3 years), Jared Sullinger ($1.3 million, 4 years) and Fab Melo ($1.25 million) to Sacramento for Tyreke Evans ($5.25 million, 1 year) and DeMarcus Cousins ($3.9 million, 2 years).
Boston solidifies its line-up right now and forms a solid core of Rajon Rondo, Cousins, Evans and Green for the future. If anyone can make Cousins a respectable basketball player, it's Kevin Garnett and the Celtics.
Sacramento takes a big hit up front but gathers a lot of untapped talent. Sullinger can play power forward and center, and Melo is a talented prospect who just hasn't gotten any playing time. Terry comes at a relatively cheap price and can provide experience, leadership and a scoring spark off the bench.

They can then trade Bradley, Lee and a 1st for Gortat and Dudley which makes their frontcourt one of the best in the league :).

I'd actually be down for this if we could keep one of the guards, (need a defensive guard at the 2). Take Bass or Collins

Kings get very little in that trade

You don't really know that, since two of the three players the Kings are getting haven't gotten a lot of playing time. And I think you're forgetting what an albatross Cousins has made himself into.
Sacramento will have to sell at a loss up front to get rid of Cousins. In this deal, they sell at that loss but can potentially gain if Sullinger and Melo turn out well with some time under their belts.
How about we cut the deal to Cousins for Sullinger, Melo and Avery Bradley?

Take off Bradley and add Courtney lee and I'd accept that in a heart beat. We have too many PGs already. Haha and I realize because his attitude we would have to sell low, but why sell too low when we could just keep him and hope it turns out better because he's already a top 5 center. He could be the best in the league if he stops being a female cat. Haha. I would also add a third team to this to take Evans. Maybe the magic or the Knicks or Philadelphia.

We give you our 2 best defensive specialist then. Pj Tucker and Dudley :). If you want we can give you Brown or Telfair for Barbosa.

Celtics

Rajon Rondo/Telfair
Evans/Dudley/Tucker
Pierce/Green
KG/Bass
Cousins/Gortat

Not a bad team. Defensive players like Dudz and Tucker under Doc :drool:

Picks would have to be involved.

Demarcus could get more than that by himself. If the kings wanna trade cousins, they have to be very picky and we don't want two more unknowns.
