Sources Should Say: DeMarcus Cousins Trades That Make Sense

I know that it doesn't seem as thought he'll get traded anymore after the coaching change...but part of me still thinks we should sell (relatively) high on him. Read this story a bit ago and some of the deals (specifically the McGee one) make sense to me.

Unless you live in Orlando, it’s not everyday one of the league’s most talented big men demands a trade to greener pastures. With the recent report that DeMarcus Cousins was told to stay away from the team after he may or may not have requested a trade, it only make sense to look at a few trades that would make sense for the Anaheim — sorry, Sacramento — Kings.

5. New Jersey trades Brook Lopez and second round pick to Sacramento for Cousins.

Your immediate reaction is probably: “Wait, why would the Kings trade for an injured center who got out-rebounded by 6-foot-4 Dwyane Wade last year?”

In a monkey wrench move to throw off Mayor Kevin Johnson’s “Keep the Kings!” push, the Maloofs could green light any personnel decision, that would — what’s another word for sabotage? — place a premium on draft picks and “building for the future,” a future that the Maloof’s hope is in Anaheim. As Bill Simmons wrote almost a year ago, the Maloofs are in debt and over-leveraged. The relocation fee Anaheim would have to pay the Maloofs — believed to be in the $75 to $100 million range — is enticing enough for the Maloof’s to make a tempting, if unscrupulous, decision
