The Cleveland Cavaliers, Charlotte Bobcats and Dallas Mavericks are three teams that have interest in trading for DeMarcus Cousins if the new ownership of the Sacramento Kings decide to part ways with their most valued asset, according to sources.

The Bobcats are motivated to turnaround their long rebuilding situation and would surely be willing to build a package for Cousins around the No. 4 pick.

Cousins would be 'Plan C' for the Mavericks if they are unable to sign either Chris Paul or Dwight Howard.

Cousins is entering the final season of his contract before reaching restricted free agency. via Chad Ford ESPN

Well if there is anyone who DMC should at least respect and listen to it should be MJ. That kid has so much talent, yet the fact that he is a kid is the most talked about thing. I do think his time has run its course in Sacramento, parting ways at this point will be good for the organization.

Hoping he remains a King and that the new coach will get him under control. If the new GM brings in a respected veteran player or two, that could help.

He needs to go to a team where there are veterans so he can mature as a player. Mavs would be a good solid choice for now. The potential to accomplish some good things might be in Cleveland though pairing with Kyrie.

Too bad it will cost Kemba and MKG +

JEDean89
05-29-2013, 08:49 PM
there aren't many teams with assets to acquire him. it would take a proven player + a lotto pick or maybe a top 2014 lotto pick (like charlottes) to get him. Cousins isn't going to be a dumbass forever.

I personally Think the Nuggets should make a move for him. They would have to somehow move McGee and Give up Wilson Chandler and Fournier but it would be worth it. those 3 for Cousins in a couple years Nuggs would rule the west.

Bobcats & Mavericks could benefit

You don't think something like Biyombo, Sessions, 4th for Cousins and Salmons could get it done?

KingstonHawke
05-29-2013, 09:34 PM
I think a Noel for Cousins swap makes all the sense in the world for both parties. The Cavs would get a true sidekick to team with Irving. Someone much better than any player in this years draft. And the Kings would save money (Cousins is in the last year of his rookie contract), get a player with a ton of upside in Noel, and pretty much save that locker room.

Yea actually that might be enough. Or maybe Thompson instead of Salmons since Thompson has a worst contract.

I think Thompson has a ton of potential and would be a nice complement to Biyombo in the front court. Biyombo and Patterson would be way too undersized. Thompson gives them decent size up front with the ability to spread the floor while Biyombo can man the paint.

If Sacramento said they'd accept MKG and their #4 pick for Cousins, Charlotte really has to do it (assuming he'll sign an extension). Cousins is just a complete monster and if he keeps his head on straight, he'll be a top 3 big man in the league.
That's a guy you build around.

Cleveland can actually make it very interesting. If the build an offer around that #1 pick it would be hard for the Kings to turn down. They have enough assets to add with that pick if needed.

I'm not sure the big deal over DMC. The guy puts up nice numbers on a terrible team, is a proven loser, uncoachable and has serious maturity and mental issues. He has the brain of Stephon Marbury in a 7 footers body.

sounds like you've been sucked into the false media coverage that has blown Cousins's character way out of proportion. Does he have maturity issues? Yes. But that's about it. He's not a proven lose and is often times the ONLY guy on a losing kings team that plays with any heart or passion. He doesn't have mental issues, that was just a comment made by OJ Mayo (funny out of all people, Mayo who has his own problems, says that). Also, Cousins is known to be a great character guy off the floor, in the locker room, around the team etc. Everyone says he's always laughing and making jokes and messing around, so it's always good to have those type of guys on your team. He does have maturity issues on the court, but that's because he acts dumb when he gets frustrated after losing so much. His on court issues aren't as bad as people think. They're nothing a good coach, solid veterans, and a winning foundation can't fix. There's a reason why a lot of teams are interested in Cousins. They feel they can offer those things that will help Cousins succeed. You need to know what you're talking about instead of letting the media's false reporting talk for you.

There is just 4 incidents of him I found with being an awful teammate and distraction. I don't know what great source you have to say this kid is everything you did in your comment but the fact that you are calling out other posters for following multiple National reports about this kid being a cancer is ridiculous. I guess you are apart of the Kings organization though and all the information from the past 2 years about the kid is false. Good job.

I think it makes a lot of sense. Trade Rondo for Cousins. Then do the Pierce + Bradley for Gordon deal. Rekindle the KG for DeAndre Jordan and Eric Bledsoe talks. Trade Jordan to a C needy team for bench pieces.

Gordon
Green
Bass
Cousins

He has best-bigman-in-the-game potential. The right coach can turn him into that in my book. Nobody has his combination of size, strength and skills.

You'd get it if you watched him more and/or he was on the Nets. He's worth the effort. It's just that, up to this point, the Kings haven't done what's necessary to help him get past this stage. Hopefully with the new owners comes a coach who can handle him and a GM who will put some veterans around him.

Coming from someone who lives in Sacramento and has season tickets to the Kings, I gotta side with texanmonstra. Look, Cousins certainly has some maturing to do, but I think the poster's point was that the national media is blowing these things way out of proportion and the problem is fans get sucked into that false overblown reporting. Looks like the same happened to you. By admitting how you believe national media reports, you are admitting to being one of the many people fooled by the overblown national media reports. Cousins has some maturing to do, but he was playing for two bad head coaches. As a Kings fan, it's very evident that Cousins wasn't the only player frustrated with the coaching. They just handled it better than he did. But for the most part, Cousins really has been a guy that teammates like hanging around, he's always active in the community with charity work, etc. You got fooled by overblown media reports, just like how texanmonstra pointed out about other fans and TO AN EXTENT, many PARTS of those reports from the past two years are indeed false. Good job.

He has more than "maturing" to do. Say it's the media all you want, the media didn't send his big *** home on multiple occasions. There was nothing overblown about that. Name one decent player on a good team EVER who has had these kinds of issues come up over and over again?

Only Cousins would be worth the lottery pick. Patterson is good and you might find a team that's borderline playoffs to give up a protected lotto pick for him (late at best). But I just don't see who else would be worth that much in a deep draft.

Well first of all, thank you for the compliment.

Second, I said "IF" they were willing to. I never said 'they should jump at this. Kings would be dumb to trade their cornerstone. He's the guy they need to build around.

Third, Charlotte has 0 big men so if that was a demand of the Kings in any trade for Cousins, it would quickly eliminate the Bobcats :)

The Kings aren't trading DMC for a top pick in this years draft. And, the Cavs aren't interested in trading for him (although they should) as he doesn't fit their philosophy. TT, Waiters, and #1 is too much. Maybe #1, #19, and Zeller.
