View Full Version : DeMarcus Cousins agent wants max extension this summer or a trade

Thereís a new ownership regime in Sacramento and from owner Vivek Ranadive on through new coach Michael Malone everyone has talked about Cousins as a cornerstone of the franchise and part of their future.

But will they give him max money? Cousins is eligible for an extension to his rookie contract this summer and guess what he and his agent want? From the Sacramento Bee:

Cousins is eligible for a contract extension this summer, and Fegan wants a maximum deal for his client with the threat of a trade demand looming if a deal isnít reached.

Cousins averaged 17.1 points and 9.9 rebounds a game last season, shooting a respectable 46.5 percent, with an All-Star level PER of 20.2. But the question with him has never been his talent or physical gifts, itís his head that leads him to get frustrated at points, take silly fouls and technicals, and take himself out of the game more quickly than any opponent can. He has feuded with every pro coach he has had about his commitment to the team.

For the Kings, you need a superstar franchise anchor to build around, one worthy of a max contract. Are you going to find one better than Cousins? http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/06/20/demarcus-cousins-agent-wants-max-extension-this-summer-or-a-trade/

best of luck to him.

I don't know of many teams looking to max out a 7 footer who shoots 40 some odd percent from the field.

Not to mention the poor attitude, and being a constant malcontent.

I bet they keep him and try to get Monta...but if they did trade him I think they would get a lot back, a team looking for a "star" player would give up some good picks and a decent young player or two for him

um 46.5 is terrible for someone who doesn't shoot a significant amount of 3's

If cousins went to a team like the spurs, they'd fix him up into a great player. Over in Sacramento, he runs the show, but if he went to a structurally strong franchise it'd utilize his talents. I dont think anyone can argue this kid has talent, its just his decision making and shot selection that is the problem

Hahahahahahahaha! He's going to handcuff someone's payroll, somewhere.

Also, didn't he talk smack about Lebron for bailing on Cleveland?

He's not worth a max deal (as of right now).

This is not close to what Lebron did....

Lebron did not say give me the max or trade me

Lebron just left after her promised Cleveland that he wouldn't leave the Cavs until he brought them a championship.

That's bailing!

His talent is deserving of a max contract, but if you consider the entire package there's no way any halfway reasonable team gives it to him.

max contracts should be reserved for the top 10-15 players in the league. the scam is that every team is allowed to offer a max deal. the reality is that there aren't 30 max level players in the NBA and small market teams create lock-outs because they have no choice but to float in mediocrity while they build and spend around players who get the max contract without having the on court production that a match contract should demand.

good luck to that franchise that is stupid enough to give him a max deal

i understand not every max player can be lebron or kobe but at least be able to get your teams to the playoffs.
damacrus cousins cant and will never be that

He will get a max deal... How many real C's are there ? 18 & 9 with lots of room to grow.. He'll get the deal he is looking for ..

the celtics should go after him.. Rondo and cousins would be :drool:

Then that's their fault for offering it to them. That's what the draft's for. OKC and SAS did it, there's no reason any other team can't hire a competent GM to build a team through the draft.

I think he has the potential to be a great player and has a chance to turn his attitude around. That being said, he also has the potential to be a cancer to his team and blow up a team's chances at success. IMO you don't give a player a Max deal based on potential... especially when the potential risk is just as great as the reward.

His agent sounds desperate. Who the hell would want this guy? If he didn't have the attitude, sure.

Houston did it with Harden and he deserves evry dime,but then again he was never a problem attitude wise.

This is what happens when guys like Eric Gordon, Nicolas Batum etc are making max $$$. Now every player that's even remotely good wants a max contract.

I could see the Suns trading for DMC but I really hope they don't. I hate guys with his kind of personality.

But I could also envision SAS trading for Cousins if Duncan retires after this season. They will fix up Cousins and then him into a HOFer.

That's not even a terrible deal. A good pick in a stacked 2014 draft + MKG and you rid yourself of the headcase.

Demar Derozan + a 1st round pick in 2014 Draft,


lowry
Ross
Gay
Cousins
Valancuinas

demar derozan avged 18 ppg/4 reb/ 2.5 ast/ PER

The last 10 games of the season, the raptors were 7-2, and of those those, 6/9 were teams above .500.
During that stretch, Derozan averaged 23 ppg/ 50% from 3pt and was a lot more effecient with his fg% (im too lazy to calculate it).

pretty solid deal if you ask me, though I'm not sure the kings would need derozan as they have thorton, and evans.. but It's certainly worth considering. The raptors would be a much better team with cousins and valancuinas in their post

It really took this long for someone to say this? This is his first max deal, and that upside is way to high to just throw this guy in the bin. I fully understand you are taking a risk, and that the dude can be a head case, no doubt.

Realistically, the kings have been nothing to write home about on any front. Their management and ownership has been in flux, the personnel turnover has been ridiculous. That lineup is full of tweeners outside of Cousins, and based on the fact that every facet of the kings organization underachieved, that team needs to reconstruct the team from the ground up.

Cousins is making a statement to the team, pay me every penny you can to keep me here, or I'm going to go to another team, and maybe have a better chance of success. If the Kings decide to part ways, then thats their decision to make.

The market will determine whether he is worth a max, and there will for sure be more than one team to go after him. Realistically, a young 7 foot rebounder with a low FG% is not an impossible set of tools to deal with. If I was faced with the prospect of Andrew Bynum and his contract/knees or DeMarcus Cousins first 4-year max deal/personality, I wouldn't blink. I'd choose Cousins.

I see the Wizards, Hornets, Cavaliers, Suns, 76ers, Pelicans, Mavs, Trailblazers, even the Clippers, Bulls and the Celtics have needs at the position, and tradable assets to varying degrees.

Haha trust me im not trashing Noah. I was talking more about boozer and his expiring contract. The bigger point i was making, is that it only takes two or three teams to drive the price up on this guy. Move Noah over to PF and Noah and Cousins could work, especially if you can get the guy to play some Bulls caliber defense. If you want to try and win in the East it seems like the most effective method is controlling the boards. On a team like the Bulls, defenses wont be able to key in on him, like they are now, and I would bet you would see that FG would go up as a result of easier shots. Not saying its gonna happen, just thought it could work from a fit perspective.

Rose

Those are the only guys id give a max to right now.

Interested as to how you see him fitting on the Thunder? Not saying your wrong, but do you think they could make it work in terms of cap?

Jarvo
06-21-2013, 06:09 PM
Idk how with the cap but I think he doesnt need to be around young players he need vets. If he goes to a team like The Spurs, Bulls, Thunder or even Boston if Doc stays I dont see him acting up. Durant and Westbrook will keep his mind right.
