If you are a die-hard NBA fan, you have likely had a chance to enjoy reading about the exciting NBA trade rumors floating around. There are so many teams being linked in trade rumors but one team which has stood out is the Sacramento Kings. The Kings have several players rumored to be on the trade block but undoubtedly the most intriguing one is their franchise player DeMarcus Cousins.
Cousins is one player who has been in the news a lot lately. The Sacramento Kings big man has just won a gold medal with Team USA during the recently concluded 2016 Rio Olympics. Now that the Olympics tournament is over, he is back to preparing for the upcoming NBA season and likewise being talked about in trade rumors.
The Kings forward-center has been linked to several NBA teams, but one possible destination for him if indeed Sacramento decides to trade him is the Boston Celtics. The Celtics acquired forward Al Horford via free agency but according to Boston.com, they are reportedly not done improving their roster as said by general manager Danny Ainge. That is why trading for a big man like Cousins is certainly still very possible for the C?s.
Boston is surely going to be involved in many trade rumors for the next few seasons. They have a collection of young talent and very promising NBA draft picks that they could use to acquire a superstar like Cousins. With Horford, Isaiah Thomas and Jae Crowder on their roster, the addition of a star like Cousins could very well push the Celtics to a whole new level.
The Kings though are still not confirmed to be trading their franchise player. That may very well change in the future though as Cousins has had some issues in terms of his maturity and criticism of the Kings franchise. It is clear that he is tired of the losing culture in Sacramento and if he gets fed up, he may very well demand a trade out of Sactown.
The Celtics are probably the best option for the Kings if indeed that day would come. They could swap Cousins for young players such as the recently drafted Jaylen Brown as well as some high NBA draft picks that they could use to rebuild. A trade between Boston and Sacramento would be a win for both teams as well as for Cousins who can finally chase a ring and appear in the NBA Playoffs.
