DeMarcus Cousins has been a player who has been the subject of many of the NBA Trade Rumors circulating recently. The Sacramento Kings power forward has been linked to the Boston Celtics in the past. Now it seems like a new team could come in the picture and try to land the NBA All-star.
The Sacramento Kings has rather been a disappointment over the last several years. The franchise which was a regular playoff contenders decades ago has missed out on the playoffs for the last ten years. DeMarcus Cousins, the team?s franchise player, does not like to lose and it can be one reason why he may be traded to another team sooner rather than later.
A report from Silver Screen and Roll mentioned that the Sacramento Kings and the Los Angeles Lakers were supposedly discussing a trade that would land Cousins in Hollywood. While talks ultimately did not yield any progress, anything can still happen in a split second.
In a recent tweet Cousins made on his Twitter account, the big man said that his ?favorite team growing up was the Lakers?. This certainly means that he would not mind wearing the purple and gold if indeed the two teams can strike a deal.
The Kings have not really given any indication that they are actively trading DeMarcus Cousins, although his maturity level and on-court antics has made him always in trade rumor talks. The Kings have not found much success in the past decade but it is certainly not in part to Cousins performance. The big man was a first time All-star last year and he was playing at an entirely different level.
Still, the Kings management has not been successful in surrounding Cousins with the players he needs for the team to win. It may only be a matter of time before Cousins will demand for a trade to try and go to a winning situation. If that indeed happens, a potential trade to the Lakers may be the best solution for him. Will we see Cousins wearing the purple and gold soon?
