It's being reported that Demarcus Cousin’s agent is shopping him to four teams, the Celtics being one of them. Kentucky Sports Radio, which reports on all things University of Kentucky which is Cousin’s alma mater, reported and shared by SacTownRoyalty:


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.


But what would it take to LEGITIMATELY get him here? I know Simmons has been floating a three way trade with the Raptors, Kings and Celtics but I don’t think that’s realistic because at this point there is no way they trade Rondo. Would waiting till closer to the February trade deadline lower his value or drive it up as teams become more desperate for a legit big man? It's clear the Green need to make a move, hopefully Danny has a few tricks up his sleeve.

LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

NO WAY that trade goes down unless the Kings are absolutely 150% desperate to get rid of Cousins.

They're trading DeMarcus Cousins, Tyreke Evans, Isaiah Thomas, Chuck Hayes, and Jimmer Fredette for Rajon Rondo, Courtney Lee, and D-League Fab Melo. In no universe is that close to a good trade for Sacramento.

And lmao at the Raptors being in here...Kyle Lowry for Tyreke Evans and Isaiah Thomas. Absolute steal.

Looking at this picture, Jimmer Fredette and Kyle Lowry have higher PER ratings than Rondo..lol

If I were Toronto I wouldn't want to do that trade at all that Simmons was talking about. Evans and Thomas are two young talented players, but Lowry is easily better than both of them. Only way I see them pulling the trigger on that trade is if they get a couple of picks or if they get rid of Bargani.

Why would the Boston Celtics give up their future star, MVP candidate and franchise player? He's one of the best point guards in the game today and giving him away would be a huge loss and the deal wouldn't be worth it for Cousins. No offense to Cousins and his game; he has potential to be one of the best C's in the game and each year he's going to get better. Rajon Rondo, Avery Bradley, Jeff Green and Demarcus Cousins will keep the Celtics competitive, flexible and give them a bright future if the trade goes the way how they plan throughout. I'm not saying these players will remain or Paul Pierce, Jason Terry or Kevin Garnett will be traded.

If I was the Kings GM and the Celtics told me I'm not getting Rondo, I would:
A) Laugh
B) Demand Bradley, Green, Lee, Barbosa, Sullinger, and draft picks and THEN still decide if I have enough..

No way the Celtics trade Rondo, especially for a high risk player like Cousins, and they dont have the pieces outside of Rondo to get Cousins more than likely so I dont see a deal going down.

THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET EQUAL VALUE IN RETURN, REGARDLESS THE TEAM

But they can get WAY better value than three role players. If the Kings have any sense in them, they'll go either Rondo or no deal with Boston.

Who would be stupid enough to try to get Rondo for Cousins?? Jeff Green, AB, & Sullinger are three role players with tremendous upside. And I'd like to see what the Bobcats, Mavs, and Raptors could offer outside their best player(s). Regardless though, and you might disagree with me strongly, but giving up Jeff Green, Avery Bradley, and Jared Sullinger is too much for DMC.

That's the reason why the Kings shouldn't trade with Boston. They aren't gonna get Rondo. That's the only player they should be looking for while trading with Boston. And it won't happen.

Jeff Green is an inconsistent role player.
Jared Sullinger is a rookie averaging 5 points a game playing 18 minutes on the team with arguably the biggest need for big men.
Avery Bradley has shown to have potential and to be a good starter for one month in his two year career.

That's too much for a top 5 center with the potential to compete with DWIGHT HOWARD in being the league's best center?

I doubt the Mavs give up OJ Mayo
I doubt the Raps give up Kyle Lowry
I doubt the Cats give up Michael Kidd- Gilchrist

Guess they can't trade with any of those teams if they're not gonna get their best players either.

Jeff Green just came back from heart surgery, and is doing better than most guys would do coming back from an injury like that.
Jared Sullinger, like you said, is a ROOKIE, give him time to develop, did you expect double digit rebounding or something? Even the #1 pick isn't averaging that.
Avery Bradley continued his great play all the way through his last playoff minute, I don't know where you got a month from. He's already developed into one of the league's best defenders.

And yes, it is too much because Avery is our starting SG for now and the future and is quickly developing. Jared Sullinger is gonna be our main PF when KG's gone and Jeff Green is our ONLY back up for Pierce, unless you plan on bringing a couple D-Leaguers up.
