|NBA Rumors: 50-50 chance Kings trade star DeMarcus Cousins, according to report||11.07.16 at 12:50 pm ET|
The NBA season may only be a week old, but it’s never too early for the rumor mill to start churning with news that could impact the Celtics.
First up: According to NBA insider Sam Amico, at least one Western Conference exec believes the Kings are “50-50” to trade center DeMarcus Cousins this season.
“If not, it’s not necessarily because they want to keep him,” the exec added.
The Kings are off to a 3-5 start after Cousins scored 22 points and grabbed 14 rebounds in Sunday’s victory in Toronto. However, according to Amico’s sources, Cousins is such a problem in the locker room, the Kings may eventually have no choice but to move him to a team with strong veteran leadership.
Whether the Celtics could be that team, with Isaiah Thomas and Al Horford, remains to be seen, but they’re in a position to be linked to any high-profile player who becomes available, thanks to two more potential lottery picks from the Nets this year and next.
There’s no questioning Cousins’ talent. The seven-year vet and two-time All-Star has averaged over 20 points and 10 rebounds a game for his career, but he has also been suspended multiple times for everything from accumulated technical fouls to insubordination.
“They’ll never get what they want in return,” an East GM told Amico of the Kings. “They think Cousins is worth more than he actually is. He hurts you every bit as much as he helps you. He’s like a cheeseburger, or booze. Too much and you’ll pay a price.”
