Simmon's ranked Monroe over Cousins in his 12th annual ranking of NBA's top 50 most valuable assets.
What seemed to rankle Sacramento fans was Simmon's assertion that Sacramento would do an even swap for Monroe in a heartbeat. Here is what Simmon's had to say:
Just know that Sacramento would flip Boogie for Monroe in a cocaine heartbeat … and if the roles were reversed, Detroit would hang up.
So what do Sacramento Kings fans really think?
