Knicks Among Preferred Destinations For Cousins

The Knicks are on the list of teams that DeMarcus Cousins would like to play for, writes Ken Berger of, who nonetheless suggests New York lacks the assets to make that happen. Agent Dan Fegan would like to see him on the Lakers, Berger adds. An earlier report from Sam Amick of USA Today indicated much the same about the desire of Cousins’ camp to see him in purple-and-gold, but Cousins likes Sacramento and has asked not to be traded, according to Jason Jones of The Sacramento Bee.

Knicks team president Phil Jackson suggested to reporters today that the Knicks don’t have the assets necessary to make a credible offer for Cousins, according to Ian Begley of (Twitter link). The primary chip the Knicks would appear to have, aside from Carmelo Anthony, is the No. 4 pick in this year’s draft, though Jackson today downplayed the idea that they’ll trade it. He told reporters that he’s listening to offers but “not soliciting so much” and pegged the chances of the Knicks moving down in the draft at only 5%, as Chris Herring of The Wall Street Journal relays (Twitter links). Still, Sacramento would rather take back veterans, as Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports reported overnight.

The Kings appear to be a house divided, with Karl pushing for a trade and owner Vivek Ranadive insisting time and again, just as front office chief Vlade Divac has, that Cousins is not available for any swap, as Wojnarowski detailed. The Lakers are making a push, as Marc Stein of reported Monday, also identifying the Nuggets as a likely suitor. The Celtics, another team reportedly likely to go after the All-Star center, appear to have the most to offer, as Berger notes.

New York can’t trade its No. 4 pick until after the draft, and absorbing Cousins’ salary would be easier after the July Moratorium. The same is true of the Lakers and their pick, so a Cousins trade to either destination would appear unlikely to become official for at least another couple of weeks, even if the clubs might reach an agreement in the interim.

    Why must you torture and tease us Knicks fans?? LOL…everyone wants to play for the Knicks going back to Chris Webber and Rasheed Wallace…too bad the only player who wanted to play for the Knicks who actually came was Melo and we had to trade our entire team (and draft picks) to get him.

    I literally cant see any way the Lakers could get Cousins, even if the Kings wanted to trade him. They can try to give them their 2 1st round picks this year (2 and 27), but the Kings would need at least 1, if not 2 more assets, and the Lakers dont have any. They have Clarkson and Randle, but I would think that Sacramento wants more than that

    With all that being said, I REALLY dont see a way for the Knicks to get him

    Neither of these teams can get any of the players that are rumored about them. The only reason the Knicks and Lakers are mentioned in every rumor is because they have large fan bases and thus get more clicks. Stop falling for these ESPN dbags who don’t know what they are talking about.

    This is actually a no brainer. The objectives should be for Karl to get the Nuggets that won 57 games, and trade Cousins to the Nuggets. The Nuggets can then rebuild around Cousins. So get it done already.
