The NBA trade rumors, which have surfaced lately, have become more intriguing than ever. As the NBA regular season draws closer, more and more players are getting linked to the rumors as teams are trying to improve their roster. DeMarcus Cousins has been one of the players who have been frequently linked to NBA trade rumors. With the season almost here, many are still surely asking if the Cousins trade for Kevin Love rumor is still possible to happen.
Cousins had an amazing off-season. He won a gold medal in the 2016 Rio Olympics where he established himself as one of the most formidable big men in the world. Now, he is facing the mission of getting the Sacramento Kings on the winning track, which could be a lot harder than winning in the Olympics.
Previously, Cousins was linked to trade rumors involving Cleveland. The Corner Talk reports that the Cavaliers actually inquired with Sacramento about Cousins. This is certainly very intriguing as they team is already stacked as it is.
The defending NBA champions are surely not resting on their laurels as they are still trying to become even better. With Cousins on the team, they would have an incredible scoring punch that will definitely make them the favorites to win the title once more.
In order to get Cousins, they would have to part with Love. While at present there is no news regarding the swap, that trade could still happen. This is because Cousins is a winner. He hates losing. If Sacramento continues to be a cellar-dweller in the Western Conference, expect Boogie to demand a trade out of Sactown.
If Cousins wants to win a title right now, Cleveland is the team for him. With LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and a supporting cast of veterans, the Cavs have an extremely solid core that can win it all once more. Only time will tell if indeed Cousins will get traded to Cleveland for Kevin Love, but surely more will be known as the NBA regular season draws closer.
