    Cousins to the Wizards?

    Lets start up the speculation

    At the 37 minute mark, McCollum mentions that Pelicans center DeMarcus Cousins could ďpotentially team up with John Wall and the Washington WizardsĒ this summer. Cousins is an unrestricted free agent this summer. You can listen to the podcast in the link below or click here.

    And then there is this....

    Chase Hughes
    @ChaseHughesNBCS
    John Wall said an athletic big. bench scoring and someone who can create off the dribble are offseason needs for the Wizards.

    Hmm you wonder who he is talking about...

    Wall and Cousins have made it no secret that they want to play with each other. Money will be an issue, but wouldn't be surprised to see a Porter sign and trade. Also rumor is NO isn't willing to give Cousins a max deal.


    PAPI SMASH!

    Itís a great move. You just donít understand basketball much.

    Youíre not gonna win with 3 wing players.

    But 2 wings and a talented big who can also pass?

    Yeah the Wiz will be better regardless of DMCís Achilles.

    Not going to happen when Wall, Beal and Porter make the MAX.

    I would love this move as a Raptor fan. It would be incredible to see them combine for 60ppg, 15rpg, 15apg & 3spg and still do little to impact their teams ability to win.

    Cousin can pass? The guy is talented as hell but also ball dominating and a **** decesion maker. Him and Wall share bad habits and would shut out everyone else

    Are you suggesting N.O. has any interest in Porter, or is a third party going to get involved to take that contract?

    Only possibility is if Cousins insists on the full blown $32M+ max and they feel medically he cannot recover to warrant that deal.

    I think overall the Pelicans just don't want to pay the luxury tax as a small market team. And neither Cousins' (coming) or Porter's (existing) contracts provide any solution.

    You know funny thing is you guys are paying an "all star" PG 28 million per year (more in future years) and he is having very little impact for the money he is making. I'm expecting that guy to put up 30 points a night for that kind of money.

    I could see this happening only if the Pelicans re-sign Cousins with an understanding they'll trade him for Porter. Otherwise, what do the Wizards have that the Pelicans want? Beal isn't being traded. Gortat and Mahinmi are washed. Oubre isn't getting it done.
    I'm taking that deal in a heartbeat if I'm the Pelicans. Imagine a crunch-time lineup next year of Holiday, Moore, Porter, Mirotic and Davis.
    Cousins would just make the Wizards that much more front-loaded, but Washington seems desperate enough for relevance to do anything.

    That's an odd expectation you have. Did you know that there was only 1 player in the NBA average 30 this year?

    Yeah I tend to agree. Just because he passed a lot in New Orleans and racked up assists doesn't necessarily make him a good passer.

    It's like RW, I don't think he's a great passer because he racks up assists. He's passable but nothing close to impressive.
