The Kings recently suspended the talented, but troubled DeMarcus Cousins for unprofessional behavior and conduct detrimental to the team.
Cousins says he wants to remain in Sactown, but does the team still want him?
The Celtics could sure use a 22-year-old, 6-11 forward who averages 16 ppg and 9.6 rpg.
In a column that’s all speculation, Chris Sheridan comes up with Four Ways to Trade DeMarcus Cousins. Guess which team is included in scenario #1?
Cousins and Tyler Honeycutt to Boston for Jared Sullinger, Fab Melo and Avery Bradley.
The Celtics proved last season you can take the Miami Heat to seven games without a true center. But taking them to seven games and beating them in seven games are two different teams, and the East is a stronger conference than it was a year ago. Boston would have to part with the two players it drafted last June in the first round, and a capable young defender in Bradley who has become somewhat superfluous (when he is read to come back) because of the arrivals of Jason Terry and Courtney Lee.
Wow… that’s a hefty package for a guy with character issues. The Celtics would have to be convinced KG and Doc Rivers could set Cousins straight.
Tyler Honeycutt is a 6-8 swingman from UCLA who was drafted in the 2nd round in 2011. According to John Hollinger, he can defend and pass, but has limited scoring ability. Consider him a throw-in.
