The NBA trade rumors continue to make waves around the league as all the 30 teams are constantly trying to improve their lineup. One player who is no stranger to the trade rumors is DeMarcus Cousins as he has been said to be on the trade block of the Sacramento Kings. There is a possibility though that Cousins may not get traded after all as the Kings owner is not interested in trading away the talented big man.
Cousins has been involved in many different trade rumors over the past couple of seasons. With the Sacramento Kings always in the bottom half of the team standings, many expect Cousins to demand a trade not for long. Well the Kings owner, Vivek Ranadive, may not be considering trading the big man even if Sacramento is piling on the losses.
Boogie Not Going Anywhere?
According to Complex, Ranadive said in an interview that he does not want to trade Cousins. This is certainly very intriguing considering that Cousins is going to become a free agent at the end of next season.
After Kevin Durant left the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors during the free agency, many thought that the Kings would want to avoid losing their franchise player for nothing. This scenario certainly could be possible yet Ranadive is not fazed by this.
It could be possible that Ranadive has something up his sleeve that makes him believe Cousins will stay on in Sactown after his contract expires. If this is true, it may be the reason why they are not willing to trade away Boogie.
Could the Kings Re-Sign Cousins?
If the Kings decide to move Cousins, there would be an abundance of teams interested in the All-Star. Cousins is a very unique talent though making the Kings hesitant of trading him away.
This is still a developing story though so a lot could still happen between now and the NBA trade deadline. Ranadive could also change his mind depending on the trade offers that they could receive for Boogie.
