Amick: Everyone on Kings available except DeMarcus Cousins

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Sam Amick reports that the Kings have affirmed their stance that Cousins is untouchable, but are willing to listen to offers for anyone else on the roster.

Sam Amick and Jeff Zillgitt of USA Today Sports recently posted an article full of 2013 Predictions. As usual, Sam provides the latest info on all things Sacramento Kings:

As Sacramento general manager Geoff Petrie told David Aldridge of NBA.com recently, the Kings have no plans of trading frustrated big man DeMarcus Cousins. That sentiment is now consistent both privately and publicly, and it's a change from the "he's not untouchable" stance taken in the days following his Dec. 23 suspension for yelling at coach Keith Smart at halftime of a Dec. 22 game. As for Tyreke Evans? The Kings will certainly listen to offers for the fourth-year guard and have shown legitimate interest in upgrading their roster either by moving him or anyone else not named Cousins.

Nothing too surprising here, but hopefully it will help stop the deluge of Cousins rumors. Cousins has been fantastic in his four games since coming back from suspension, averaging 16.5 points, 12.5 rebounds and most surprisingly 5.8 assists. Hopefully Cousins has turned a corner in his career, but I'm sure there will still be plenty of bumps in the road.

The fact that Tyreke Evans is available is also unsurprising. Evans has had trouble remaining healthy in his first four years, and with his rookie contract up after this season, the Maloofs could very well opt to trade him if they aren't willing (or able) to pay him.
