Take all DeMarcus Cousins rumors with teaspoons of salt, but Kentucky Sports Radio (solid reporting on all matters University of Kentucky) says that a source close to D.M.C. says four teams are in play. In all likelihood, this means that Cousins' agent Dan Fegan is trying to get his client to one of these four teams. They are ... ::drumroll::
Today KSR has spoken with a source close to Demarcus Cousins both that confirms trade talks are ongoing and Cousins is hoping a deal will be worked out soon. According to the source, the four teams that are most likely to end up making such a deal for cousins are Boston, Dallas, Orlando and Charlotte.
With all due respect to KSR's source, I'm not sure what the Samuel Hell those teams can offer. Boston isn't trading Rajon Rondo, Charlotte isn't trading Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and I can't find a deal involving either of the other two teams that makes an iota of sense for the Kings. Mix in the Maloofs' reported reluctance to lose Cousins and I see a recipe for nothing.
Again, KSR is usually solid. I just think this list of teams is wishful thinking. DeMarcus Cousins' value is not at "Avery Bradley and Jared Sullinger" level.
